Aldous Harding is a Christchurch local, whose records are released in New
Zealand by Lyttleton records (home of the mighty Marlon Williams and
Delaney Davidson). Lyttelton is a gorgeous port town to the north of
Christchurch. A home for Maori for about 700 years, Lyttelton Harbour was
discovered by European voyagers passing by on February 16, 1770 during the
Endeavour's first voyage to New Zealand. Today it is one of New Zealand's
busiest ports. In popular culture it is best known as the location for most of the
exterior scenes in Peter Jackson's 1996 horror movie The Frighteners. It is also
a town surrounded by many historic buildings, many of which have been turned
into bars. Aldous Harding's music has been the best thing that has ever happened
to these bars, where wayfaring loners shuffle in at the wrong times of day. She has
been the savior of those falling in home-cooked opium furrows. She has kept
sailors in check with cheek and a strong-songed tongue. And now she will be all
yours for an album-length period of time, and you may have your picnic and feast
upon the music. So lucky one, close your eyes. Turn your nose towards river water.
Twitch your ears as rabbits do. Settle in. Listen to this one closely.
