New Zealand show

This week's show was all about the New Zealand indie scene! I've been in love with the country and it's music since I heard The Chills "Pink Frost", it was a total epiphany. NZ's amazing mix of melody and raucousness still amazes me - young bands like The Mint Chicks, Die! Die! Die!, Punches, and Surf City are still making great music from the tiny little islands.
