Couchmaster ‎(Cass, Album). Flying Nun Records, Festival Records. referencing Couchmaster, CD, Album, MR0126-2. THIS MUSIC IS as sweeping and vast as the land it comes from. Not since "The Law Of Things" have I been so excited about a BATS record. The delicately crafted emotionally choreographed songs fronted by Robert Scott's vocals/guitars and occasionally Kaye Woodward's, are a joy to listen to. All sorts of subtle nuances and progressions make this disc a well worn wonder in my deck.

Album Intro: If Couchmaster did one thing, it was cement The Bats as one of New Zealand's great bands. Alongside that, this 1995 release, which has now been re-mastered by bassist Paul Kean, sees the band exploring and experimenting with the folkish-psychedlic pop they have become internationally renown for. Couchmaster, their sixth album, shows a band that is far from resting, with tracks such as the excellent 'Afternoon in Bed' - a song so perfecty balanced, so perfectly The Bats.
