Happy notes from New Zealand

I’ve just returned from a brief road trip to the Eastern Cape, and one thing that road trips always make me aware of is the importance of playlist. When you have four people in a car, there are bound to be various music tastes in a small space.
Fortunately for us, Avalanche City has one of the friendliest and most likeable sounds around. I Love Love Love (see what I did there) these guys from Down Underer (as Flight of the Conchords would say). Originally founded by Dave Baxter, the international success of New Life Above the Ground, his first album, was unprecedented and unexpected. Now he’s got some friends together and is working on a second album, of which this song is a taster of what’s to come (besides having a ridiculously adorable video). I love their use of unusual instruments, and almost all of their songs have sweet, upbeat and positive lyrics and messages, perfect for a road trip.  They are particularly fond of cartoons and stock animation.

Happy Monday
