The Chills
Snow Bound

I've just danced around the room and celebrated as if I'd won the World Cup as there's a new the Chills album due. The legendary New Zealand group returned in 2015 with the excellent Silver Bullets which was as good as anything they recorded in their heyday. Their precise yet emotional economic pop is certainly welcome round here.

The Chills
Pyramid / When The Poor Can Reach The Moon

The Chills comeback album 'Silver Bullets' really was a winner. A complex album which rewarded multiple listens and it's almost unprecedented for a band to be away for so long and come back with something that's almost the equal of earlier work. This Record Store Day release takes 'Silver Bullets' centre piece 'Pyramids'/ 'Where the Poor Can Reach the Moon' and pairs them with exclusive versions of ‘Night Of Chill Blue’ and ‘Walk On The Beach’ which were both recorded Karma Sound Studios in Bang Sarai Thailand in 2013. What were they doing in Thailand you might ask? With music this good, I really don't care.

The Chills / Martin Phillipps
The Curse Of The Chills / Martin Phillipps Live At The Moth Club

This is a must-buy for any self respecting fan of New Zealand legends the Chills, a major new documentary on the band and in particular their leader Martin Phillipps. The film contains never been seen footage as well as interviews with Phillipps and close family. The DVD is coupled with CD of Phillips live at the Moth Club in London on his 2015 comeback tour. There also appears to be a book but we're not sure what is in that.

The Chills
Silver Bullets

Silver Bullets is The Chills first new record since Sunburnt in 1996. Their distinctive, complicated and smart guitar pop mixes lyrics of desolation with memorable, bright melodies. The Chills, along with bands such as The Clean and The Verlaines were part of The Dunedin Sound - a style of indie-pop from New Zealand with a jangly guitar sound.

The Chills
The BBC Sessions

Over three years in the mid-eighties, Kiwi pop stars the Chills hopped overseas and recorded some music at the BBC in the process. Thankfully enough, that music was recorded for the Peel Sessions, and the twelve tunes that came out of the good times are now documented on this compilation. 

The Chills
Stand By

Renowned proponents of Flying Nun Records and New Zealand Kiwi-pop pioneers the Chills have re-mastered a version of 2004’s EP ‘Stand By’ in celebration of their first European tour since 1996. Featuring two previously unreleased tracks ‘Find Your Own Way Home’, a cover of Neil Diamond’s ‘Solitary Man’ (a much better version of it too, in my opinion), and a live appearance at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games this year, it’s the perfect follow-up to last year’s live album ‘Somewhere Beautiful’. Despite front man Martin Phillips being the only sole constant in the ever-changing line-up, the band are back in fine form and preparing us for the new LP in coming months.

The Chills, The Verlaines, The Stones, Sneaky Feeling
Dunedin Double

Captured Tracks’ Flying Nun reboot tackles this long-lost four-way split album from some classic Kiwi bands. Godmothers and fathers of the NZ underground The Chills, The Verlaines, The Stones, and Sneaky Feeling are all remastered here. A double 12” packaged in loving tribute to the DIY ephemera of the scene.

The Chills
Kaleidoscope World

Kaleidoscope World gathers together the earliest days of New Zealand’s The Chills: every single release between the years 1982 and 1986. This must have sounded like the opening up of a new world back then: an indie sound as light and poppy as it was alternative and new. CD / double LP on (needless to say) the legendary Flying Nun label.
