Smoke & Mirrors (CD)
This 2006 import (reissued stateside in 2008) concocts a fiery fusion of proto-punk, garage stomp, and slide-guitar blues. What separates these New Zealanders from most of their raw, garage-revivalist peers is their knack for melody. "Such A Pretty Curse" and "Blood Red" both draw their energy from catchy hooks. But elsewhere, "Emperor's New Clothes" and "Tiny Dlunder Stolen Thunder" go for straight-ahead gusto. There are even a couple of ragged, jangly ballads to balance out the affair, highlighted by album closer (and possible response/ode to The Rolling Stones) "Don't Shine Your Light On Me."
