Night Trippin’ is a show by Steven Dove in association with Far Out Magazine, which unearths global field recordings, alternative music and audio – one region at a time.

Setting sail from Japan last week, Night Trippin’ makes the relatively short 9,346 km trip south to sample the sweet and sharp taste of the Kiwi.

This week Night Trippin’ looks into the 80’s jangly guitar scene in New Zealand, specifically the Dunedin scene, file this episode somewhere in musical history between The VU and Yo La Tengo.
