COAT OF ARMS
Sharkness
(Self released)

Good Laika's Robin Hinkley carries on where his band left off with a clever, tuneful, and yet toothless, Kiwi album.

Some pretty cool flourishes from producer Age Pryor and engineer Lee Prebble lift the generally cruisy atmosphere but the cameos from Matthew Armitage and Ricky Boyd make this really seem less like something Hinkley wanted to do while the rest of the band weren't watching and more like something the rest of the band wouldn't put their name to.

This will probably get some pretty high rotation in some of Wellington 's cooler eateries, but hardly the sort of thing to get the blood boiling or the dancefloor stomping.
