Peter Jefferies (This Kind of Punishment) released his brilliant sophomore album 'Electricity' in 1994. While his solo debut, 1990's 'The Last Great Challenge In A Dull World', has drawn comparisons to classic singer-songwriters like Nick Drake and Townes Van Zandt, 'Electricity' is a far more sparse and nocturnal affair. Jefferies' earthy baritone weaves between piano, guitar, cello and analog tape machine noise, pulling in listeners to the deep pastoral life of his music. With guest appearances from heavyweights in the New Zealand music scene (Straitjacket Fits' Shayne Carter, Plagal Grind's Robbie Muir and The Dead C's Bruce Russell), 'Electricity' has garnered a cult following among fans, yet the songs possess a singular quality-every note, utterance and flourish reflect back to Jefferies alone. The simple arrangements, in particular on ballads such as 'By Small Degrees,' convey fiercely intimate moments as well as Jefferies tremendous range and playfulness as a writer. This first-time vinyl reissue includes four bonus tracks from 1992's 'Swerve' EP and is highly recommended for fans of Flying Nun Records, John Cale and Jim Shepard. After 20 years, now is the time to revisit the groundbreaking work of this New Zealand legend.
