In his native New Zealand, producer/singer-songwriter Kody Nielson is well-known in indie music circles. His "troublegum" group the Mint Chicks, which disbanded a few years ago, signed to Flying Nun Records in 2003 and released three albums with the label. His brother Ruben, who was also a Chick, moved to Portland and went on to form Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Now, Kody's taking his turn at conquering America with his psych-pop project Opossom. The band's debut LP, Electric Hawaii (Fire Records), dropped in August and features stripped-down instrumentation and lyrics that talk to popular song topics like love and loss.  We recommend checking out "Girls" and "Fly" and then hightailing it over to Cameo tonight to see the trio live. And the show simply cannot go on without Arms. A perennial Flavorpill favorite, the dashing indie-rock outfit fronted by Todd Goldstein has Tommy Mislock of the Antlers sitting in this evening on bass. Blue Hawaii rounds out the bill.

You can also catch Opossom on October 24th at Pianos.

Cameo Gallery says…

Opossom: A native of New Zealand, Kody Nielson is none other than Opossum. A touring member of Unknown Mortal Orchestra and formerly of The Mint Chicks, Kody began Opossum as an outlet for a DIY approach to recording and engineering. The result is ‘Electric Hawaii,’ a beautiful, yet minimal arrangement of songs telling stories of life, loss, drugs and freedom. His sound is a laid back garage psychedelia, woven with pop structures and catchy hooks. Now touring, Kody is joined by friends Bic Runga (percussion) and Michael Logie (Bass). So come join the group as they bring Opossum’s stories to life.
