shocking pinks

Nothing cheers me up on a Monday like new music!

Nick Harte used to drum for NZ duo The Brunettes (just having a I LOVE New Zealand again - see older post) but is now doing solo stuff as Shocking Pinks. DFA released his self-titled record on September 17, and despite it essentially being a remastered re-release of Harte’s two previous albums (originally out through Flying Nun), I reckon he'll be getting more attention than ever, thanks to the juggernaut that is DFA Records.

The album jumps about - shoe gaze, pop, grunge, electro, lo fi - and I really think its great. Here you go...

Hope you enjoy!
