The Kiwi Animal

Brent Hayward fronted New Zealand art rock band This High and then went on to release solo EPs under the name Smelly Feet. His next step was to hook up with Julie Cooper to form DIY acoustic band The Kiwi Animal in 1982. They were joined by Patrick Waller who played cello and a load of other things to make their second album, Mercy, originally released in 1985.

The Kiwi Animal
Music Media

Music Media was the first album, originally released in 1984, by The Kiwi Animal, a New Zealand duo made up from Brent Hayward formerly of This High and Smelly Feet, and Julie Cooper. Their DIY acoustic sound was self-proclaimed as 'New Acoustic Music'. They expanded to a trio with the addition of Patrick Waller for further releases.

Maxine Funke

Reissue of New Zealand singer-songwriter Maxine Funke’s 2012 LP Felt here. Felt originally came out in a hyper-limited run of just 100 copies so it’s long overdue a new pressing, something it gets courtesy of Digital Regress. This is charming and quixotic balladry from Funke - the gentle acoustic finger-picking, softly-softly vocals and bedroom taping quality pitches Felt somewhere between Vashti Bunyan, Joanne Robertson and Daniel Johnston.

Maxine Funke

Right back to the start of her career with her short-lived stint in the $100 Band, New Zealand-based artist Maxine Funke has attempted to defy all attempts to categorise her. The Digital Regress label issues her 2008 solo album Lace on vinyl for the first time, and it brings out even more natural warmth from her music. 

Alastair Galbraith

Alasdair Galbraith started his career in Flying Nun band the Rip before embarking on a solo career. His 1992 album, 'Morse', has seen him be likened to a Dunedin version of Syd Barrett whilst also drawing influences from John Cale and fellow kiwis the Clean. Resolutely lo-fi and most definitely underrated, 'Morse' is a ‘90s underground classic.
