Stream Poor You Poor Me's Self-Titled Debut Album

Friday 29th January, 2016 9:27AM

An album that was thought lost in a fire several years ago has been rediscovered and released by Auckland six-piece Poor You Poor Me. The group, which brought together Alethia Elder, Oscar Davies-Kay, Vincent Nairn, Angela Suh, Rikki Sutton and Michael Ellis, made waves in the indie music scene when they first emerged back around 2011, picking up support slots for the likes of Ariel Pink and Deerhoof.

After releasing a handful of singles the band went into a underground bunker to record with local legend Bob Frisbee, and lay down an album's worth of material. However two weeks later, a devastating fire burned down the bunker and the master tapes were thought to be lost forever. 

But, in some kind of musical miracle, the tapes were discovered by a team of builders just a few weeks ago, and thankfully Frisbee managed to completely salvage the whole album. Here it is now for your listening pleasure....


Poor You Poor Me
will be performing the album in full at a special one-off reunion show at The Wine Cellar this Sunday 31st January with support from Emily Edrosa and The Nightshades, head over here for more information.
