Topless Women Talk About Their Lives [coll] – [Flying Nun]

Max Level   2/2/2009   CD, Soundtrack

A solid collection of edgy New Zealand rock and pop songs. The tracks, all previously issued on various Flying Nun releases, were selected by the makers of the offbeat 1997 “Topless Women…” movie as their soundtrack. You know the bands: The Clean, The Bats, The Chills, Snapper, etc, giving us their variations on the rock dynamic, from straight ahead riff-rock to fuzzy shoegazing to peppy pop. We already have around 2/3 of these songs in the music library, but here they are knocking on your head and reminding you to play them again because it’s been a few years. And you should. Track 10 and 13 are on the quiet acoustic side and are awfully nice. Track 12 is a driving instrumental. This collection is fun and it rocks respectably. Guitars, guitars,and more guitars, NZ style!
