Timothy Berry

While we are on a roll of NZ bedroom pop genius posts, here’s another name to add to your Bandcamp wish list – Aucklander Timothy Berry and his deliriously melodic ‘shambling sixties twee’ as demonstrated by ‘Dandy’ here:

The whole of the 7 song ‘Dandy/ Spit It’ mini-album is pretty cool – familiar landscape to me from that bedroom Syd Barrett/ Eliott Smith lo-fi aesthetic I know and love so much.

But Berry adds some ambitious arrangements and flourishes on ‘Dandy’ that hint at both White Album Beatles and Sparklehorse and elevate this economy-setting Power Pop tune into a perfect psychedelic miniature.
