Download of the Week: Opossum “Blue Meanies”

Kody Nielson spent almost the entire decade of the ’00s with his brother Ruben in the Mint Chicks, one of New Zealand’s best-loved experimental noise pop outfits. After the brothers took that band as far as they felt it could go, they went off in their own creative directions, with Ruben moving on to put together the Unknown Mortal Orchestra while Kody formed Opossom with former Mint Chicks bassist Michael Logie and celebrated Kiwi singer-songwriter Bic Runga. Featuring brilliant snatches of 1960s psychedelic pop mixed with doses of modern indie rock, Opossom’s upcoming album Electric Hawaii is a fully immersive listening journey — and we’re into “Blue Meanies” best. (After all, any reference to the animated film Yellow Submarine is fine by us!)
