I spent much of today picking wineberries when I should have been researching a post about Romney's offensive speech to the NAACP (Rumproast is seriously on the case, though). I figure that, since I've been a slacker, I'd try to get away with simply posting a link to a wonderful documentary about New Zealand's Flying Nun Records which was brought to my attention by all-around good guy Another Kiwi. The linked page is part one of a six-part retrospective. If you've ever wondered about the pop music scene in New Zealand over the last three decades, you're in for a treat. I was reminded of this documentary when A.K posted the video for the... uh... heavenly Heavenly Pop Hit by The Chills.
Of course, New Zealand is still putting out some fantastic music these days... my particular favorite recent-ish antipodean song has got to be Happy as Can Be by Cut Off Your Hands, which came out a few years ago:
Sorry about the perfunctory posts lately, but the berry season is perishingly short, so I've been preoccupied with my usufructary endeavors.
