"Singer/guitarist Martin Phillipps' group was at the forefront of the extraordinary little guitar-pop scene in New Zealand in the early '80s.. Kaleidoscope World is the major document of their early era." - Pitchfork

Part of the 80's extraordinarily vibrant and innovative independent music scene in New Zealand, The Chills became flag bearers, taking the Dunedin sound, as championed by the Flying Nun label, to the world. Long recognised as one of New Zealand's most influential bands, Kaleidoscope World is a definitive artifact from Martin Phillipps' groundbreaking project.
