1 - CHILLS, THE - KALEIDOSCOPE WORLD - (LP) 
FLYING NUN


Kaleidoscope World is not just the starting point for The Chills, but a story of how it all began and an insight into the world of New Zealand guitar-pop and the 'Dunedin Sound' - an influence which carries on to indie-pop bands around the world today. Originally released in 1986, the compilation captures the best of the magical early period recordings of The Chills and simply oozes excitement and possibility. The zany brightness of the cover art against the black background only hints at the wonder contained within. Now re-issued again on a deluxe 2xLP and CD set, featuring six bonus, b-sides, demos and live tracks plus an expanded gatefold cover with photos, posters and liner notes from journalist Martin Aston. As Flying Nun label founder Roger Shepherd put it - Kaleidoscope World is "complex, varied but simple and direct. Musically sophisticated but joyous, poppy and accessible. Essential."

2 - CHILLS, THE - SILVER BULLETS - (LP) 
FIRE


Following "The BBC Sessions" , The Chills release their first full length album in nearly two decades. Bursting with chiming Dunedin-pop anthems, melodic rock and Phillipps' playful punk-rock tendencies, the thrilling new album brings them to the next chapter. Recorded at Albany Street Studios in Dunedin (NZ) the album instantly reaffirms Phillipps' aptitude for writ-ing intelligent and timeless pop songs delivered with conviction. Their underlying melancholy remains and is offset by their signature catchy melodies bringing a haunting depth to their idiosyncratic sound.

4 - CHILLS, THE - SOMEWHERE BEAUTIFUL - (LP) 
FIRE


The first release to cement the partnership between Fire Records and New Zealand sonic luminaries THE CHILLS is collaboration with acclaimed contemporary artist Shane Cotton. "Somewhere Beautiful" is a triple LP set of live recordings featuring lavish packaging 3 x 180gm LPs and 2 exclusive prints of Cotton's artwork. All songs on the three LPs were performed by The Chills and recorded at a private party on New Year's Eve 2011, in Central Otago, New Zealand. Each portfolio contains a unique art print inscribed with lyrics by Martin Phillipps of The Chills. Music and art are brought together in this contemporary object, where text intertwines with image in order to generate the sensational and the unexpected. The collaboration between The Chills and Shane Cotton came about via Conceptio Art and David Telpitzky, who brought the two artists together. Shane painted the diptych "Rolling Moon" as a response to the live performance featured on this record. The Chills are a band from Dunedin, New Zealand fronted by the rare talent of Martin Phillipps. Originally formed in 1980, The Chills had a revolving cast of band members with Phillipps remaining the only constant. Joining Martin Phillipps for the latest phenomenal live incarnation of The Chills are:Erica Stichbury on keyboards, electric violin, rhythm guitar and backing vocals, Oli Wilson on keyboards and backing vocals, James Dickson on bass and backing vocals and Todd Knudson on Drums. They all feature on the recording of "Somewhere Beautiful", as Martin explains: "The third ever five-piece Chills (out of some twenty Chills line-ups) kicked into action over five years ago - and wonderful things began to happen! Soon we were asked to play at a private gig near Queenstown in New Zealand's South Island for a combined birthday party and New Year's Eve gig at the end of 2011. Of course equipment failed, all the things that should go wrong did their best to do so - but yet! we caught on tape (in the modern digital sense that is) a wonderful night, with many happy people enjoying The Chills in a raw but warm, relaxed and rewarding situation. The recording has been tidied up as little as possible - but as much as was necessary, and here it is!"

TRACKLISTING: 01. Night Of Chill Blue 02. Wet Blanket 03. Lost In Space 04. Part Past Part Fiction 05. I Think I'd Thought I'd Nothing Else To Think About 06. House With A Hundred Rooms 07. The Other 08. Walk On The Beach 09. Submarine Bells 10. True Romance 11. The Male Monster From The Id 12. Pink Frost 13. Soft Bomb Part One 14. February 15. Matthew And Son 16. Effloresce And Deliquesce 17. Canterbury Go! 18. Heavenly Pop Hit 19. I Love My Leather Jacket 20. Rolling Moon
