It’s been five years since Wellington favourites The Phoenix Foundation released their last album, Give Up Your Dreams. Since then they’ve been writing, recording, touring with the NZ Symphony Orchestra, creating the soundtrack for Hunt For The Wilderpeople, and – among other things – producing other bands.
The band’s new album 'Friendship', which dropped yesterday, features guest contributions from Nadia Reid, Hollie Fullbrook (Tiny Ruins), Dave Dobbyn and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra.
The Phoenix Foundation’s Samuel Flynn Scott walks Yadana Saw through the entire album track by track.

1:30 The Sampler
New Zealand indie-pop band Dead Famous People debuted in the 1980s. After a couple of releases, including an EP on Flying Nun Records, the band relocated to London. They signed a deal with Billy Bragg’s Utility Records, and through the label released Arriving Late in Torn and Filthy Jeans, a mini-LP that became the label's biggest-selling release.
Since then, outside of an appearance on Leonard Cohen tribute album, I’m Your Fan, the band has been mostly silent, until now. Nick Bollinger reviews their newest album Harry on this episode of The Sampler.
