The Bats' first full album continues the early promise of their EPs and, with only the slightest deviations and changes since, established their sound for just about everything that followed. Scott and company may not be the most willfully experimental of musicians, but when they're on - more often the case than not - their lovely, melancholic songs simply hit the spot. Woodward forms the perfect singing partner for Scott, while guest violinist Alastair Galbraith brings his talent to the fore as he has for so many other New Zealand bands.

The Bats, Daddy's Highway, is a classic New Zealand album. One of the first full length from Kiwi Rock Icon Label Flying Nun, but not only that, an album which 23 years after the effect, still sounds fresh and vital. The Bats are a band which is unique, they've never changed the lineup, the newest songs sound exactly like the earliest songs, . Bats songs are Bats songs, they dont sound like anyone else but plenty of bands sound like the Bats

The Bats: Daddy's Highway These New Zealanders are wimps if not simps. Robert Scott's reedy if not weedy quaver cries out for Kaye Woodward to chime in, and the one-foot-at-a-time folk-rock pulse can get pretty lame. But their jangly modesty is touching and smart-they understand the formal and historical limitations of their chosen style. And even though only one of their homely metaphors-". there'll be a morning sky/Bringing you some peace tonight"-unites words and music into a pop moment, the atmosphere sustains.
