Tall Dwarfs - Hello Cruel World











Leaving the bulk of their catalog to the Flying Nun label, Tall Dwarfs have found another friend in the Homstead imprint for releasing this excellent collection of tracks from a handful of the group's rare EP's. The New Zealand lo-fi innovators are certainly well-represented with these 22 varied and top-notch sides from the first half of the '80s. With plenty of deft guitar, organ, and handclapping work to go around, fans new to Hello Cruel World will soon understand why it gave the Dwarfs their widest audience after being released in the late '80s.

Thanks for this! I don't think it's available in the U.S. anywhere. I first got into the Tall Dwarfs when an advertisement said they were a major on influence on Neutral Milk Hotel. With this album, I see why they said this.
