I don't mind repeating what other bloggers have already written about 'cause I love the music of Martin Phillipps and The Chills. I have for nearly 30 years now. That he and the band are back with their first real new album in nearly 19 years -- Silver Bullets, out October 30 on Fire Records -- is certainly one more reason to share my enthusiasm for this music.
"Warm Waveform" is a lithe bit of business that sees Martin's voice hover around a nearly-dancing guitar figure. Exceedingly simple elements here combine to produce yet another memorable tune to add to the already impressive body of work of New Zealand's The Chills. I am not allowed to post a review of Silver Bullets until closer to the release date but I can hint that you probably won't be disappointed with the record.
And with a songwriter like Martin Phillipps at the helm, was there ever any doubt?
