The 1987 debut album from New Zealand indie-pop pioneers The Bats, Daddy’s Highway has now been re-issued and premastered. One of the outstanding New Zealand albums from the 1980s, from the lo-fi pop hook of ‘North by North’ through to the gentle drone of ‘Tragedy’, Daddy’s Highway displays a quietly powerful sound that immediately tugs you in. There is a quirky energy throughout – such as ‘Block of Wood’ – that also glows with shimmering harmonies, whispered vocals, reeling baselines and a sweet sense of despair that is as catchy as it is thought-provoking.
