Album Review: Popstrangers - Antipodes

Punk rock by way of contemporary psychedelia, Antipodes is the debut album from Auckland three piece Popstrangers. Issued through American indie label Carpark Records and here via Australian label Spunk, it's release curatorially places them alongside the likes of Cloud Nothings, Memory Tapes, Toro Y Moi and The Men (to name but a few): acts all unified by the sense of nostalgic yearning that underpins their respective creative outputs. It also marks them out as I believe, the third New Zealand act to be signed to Carpark label in seven years. Despite the scorecard importance of most of these statements, idealised evocation of nostalgia is the most crucial in setting the Popstrangers discussion.
