Kiwi Music day 15…The Able Tasmans – Hold Me 1

http://youtube.com/v/sEFsSo-Z-zs

Bit late today…this is from one of my favourite NZ albums ever, the Able Tasmans’ ‘Hey Spinner!’

Lyrically I have to say I think this is a bit weak. But I love the joyous cascading waterfall of keyboards, drums, and violin.

The Able Tasmans weren’t in many ways a typical Flying Nun band: their sound is, I think, very like the early Split Enz.

A mix of keyboard-led melodies and slight dorkiness. Its a very Kiwi thing, I think.
