FN162 Able Tasmans - Hey Spinner! (1990)
On Hey Spinner!, this obscure New Zealand group deliver some of their best upbeat Byrds-esque guitar pop on record. Of the five albums they produced in the late '80s/early '90s, the signature of their sound is the keyboard-driven melody, subtle acoustic arrangements, and propulsive rhythm section. The sound is quite close to a more folk-sounding Stereolab, with vocal harmonies from the Brian Wilson songbook. - All Music Guide
