Almost makes you want to go to New Zealand to witness if the land is as off kilter as most of the recordings on Flying Nun. It seems like New Zealand takes up another planet entirely as their sounds do not follow traditional conventions in contemporary music. Flying Nun are the John Cage of indie, I know for a fact time goes slower down there, so when we earth people experience 1 week, a new zealander person has just given a glance sideways. Not shifty or shady either, but one of pure concern and ingenuity. Every now and then you meet a person who has a 'silent middle' pure as you like, let us just say Flying Nun have a silent middle.
