Album Review

After 25 years playing guitar for legendary New Zealand group the Bats, Minisnap is Kaye Woodward's first attempt at leading her own band. Consider the attempt to be a ringing success, since Bounce Around is a thoroughly charming record that captures everything good about the Bats and adds to it. No huge surprise there, since Woodward is a vital part of the Bats sound, her lead guitar lines and vocal harmonies helping to add some sunshine to Robert Scott's often gloomy songs.

As a founding member of the Bats, Woodward has been playing with the group since 1982, but after nearly two decades she was looking for an opportunity for her own songs to be heard (guitarist and...
