Hamish Kilgour
Finklestein

Hamish Kilgour was a member of the brilliant New Zealand band, The Clean with his brother, David. Finklestein is his second solo album. Whilst his debut, All Of It And Nothing was an intimate set of songs, Finklestein has production values of a Hollywood blockbuster, bringing to life a concept based on a story Kilgour wrote for his son. Gary Olson of The Ladybug Transistor produced and played on the album. LP and CD on Ba Da Bing!

The Bats
The Deep Set

Returning with another (9th) edition of jangly guitar-led pop, The Bats bring us 12-track offering - The Deep Set. Propelled by an unstoppable rhythm section, this is the Glasgow-incepted outfit exactly how we know them. As confident, politically-tinged and direct as ever, the New Zealand 4-piece are doing what they do best.

The Clean
Getaway

The Clean’s Getaway album (geddit?) was released in 2001, by which point New Zealand’s finest underground indie boys were in a position to apply fancy production to their sound. They still sound gorgeously shambling however, e.g. just the way you want them to be. Two tracks even feature members of Yo La Tengo! Now Getaway is reissued in double CD / double LP editions by Merge.

The Clean
Anthology

Anthology serves as a celebration of The Clean, a band whose influence extends so far beyond their New Zealand home that even if you have never heard of The Clean before, you have surely heard of some of the bands (Pavement, Yo La Tengo, and Superchunk, to name a few) who have been influenced by their unique blend of homemade garage rock, hook-filled melodies, and psychedelic experimentalism. The album is a compilation from across The Clean’s legendary career, which began in 1981 and continues today. Merge originally released the 2-CD Anthology in 2003, but in celebration of our 25th anniversary, we felt the time was right to release this essential collection on quadruple LP.
