It’s kind of hard to believe that The Bats have been back for a decade now — this is their fourth album since their 2005 reunion, and like its predecessors, it shows that the band have lost none of the songwriting chops that made them one of the most prominent exponents of the much-lauded “Dunedin sound” in the 1980s. (They’re actually from Christchurch, but close enough.) While their music is timeless, their songs are very much rooted in the present. “Not So Good” (above), this album’s closing track, lambasts a leader who sounds awfully familiar: “Every time he opens up/ He’s filling up a liar’s cup / He knows better, and that’s for sure/ It’s your fault if you are poor.”
