Lil Chief

at the forefront of new zealand independent pop in the 00s is lil chief records, a small, but firmly established label maintained by [the tokey tones] scott mannion and [the brunettes] jonathan bree. lil chief estasblished their name and chirpy indie-pop focus with the stunning debut of auckland popsters the brunettes, and follow-up releases from the tokey tones, and the sublime nudie suits.
2004 seems to be an even stronger year for the dynamic new label, with the follow-up from the high-riding brunettes, along with new recordings from the dynamic shaft, edmund cake’s quirky solo debut, and the long-awaited 2nd album from christchurch’s alec bathgate, making their way into stores.
