Chills, The - Kaleidoscope World
Brand new. Sealed 2xLP.
Kaleidoscope World is not just the starting point for The Chills, but an insight into the world of New Zealand guitar-pop and the Dunedin Sound - an influence which carries on to indie-pop bands around the world today. Originally released in 1986, the compilation captures the best of the magical early period recordings of The Chills and simply oozes excitement and possibility.
Deluxe reissue features six bonus, b-sides, demos and live tracks plus an expanded gatefold cover with photos, posters and liner notes from journalist Martin Aston.
Filled with the glowing songs of chief Chill - Martin Phillipps - a music-savant that somehow wrangles psychedelic pop and folk, Syd Barrett and Brian Wilson, all with his innate ability to sound both joyous and sad within a moment.
