about

New Zealand underground psych-pop pioneers return with a third new album in 4 years.

“fans of Pavement and the 1990s American slack school can squint and see the southern-hemisphere source of those insouciant grooves, and the decision to retell Norse mythology chug-guitar-style on the nine-minute Valhalla is inspired.” Sunday Times (UK)

"further evidence that The Puddle are enjoying the kind of career high which other bands experience in their youth then lose" www.elsewhere.co.nz

“The track about about what Thor, Odin, and his mates get up to in the wee small hours (think Iggy singing Beowulf) is the mad but gripping centrepiece of this set... shows the second wind that frontman George D Henderson's band have shown on their noughties albums is still blowing strong... Might be time to sign up for that cult following.” 4.5/5 NZ Herald

“...a heavy, confusing, heady and eccentric album. It has all the usual parts you’d expect: drums, bass, guitars, singing, verses, choruses etc; but it puts them together in such a hallucinatory way it sounds like something quite new... to follow it intently is to fall down the rabbit-hole for 12 songs. Mandatory listening for undergraduate boys.” 5/5 Waikato Times
