Innovative From Back To Back

New Zealand band The Renderers’ new record A Rocket into Nothing is reviewed on music site Pop Matters. “Even among the angular, bizarre likes of the Clean and the 3Ds, the Renderers have always been outliers. Rather than focus on coiled-up, punk-inspired pop, they have always dealt more in Americana, in the shadowy tones of Maryrose Crook’s vocals and the grinding crank of her husband Brian’s guitars and the infinite space the two seem to make together. A Rocket into Nothing is a great, innovative pop record front to back, even when it isn’t perfect. The Renderers prove once more that they don’t have to sacrifice their experimental side to sound accessible, and 20-plus years in, they’re as good as they’ve ever been.”
