Stunning debut album from this psychedelic power trio from Melbourne, Australia featuring Duncan Blachford of Actual Holes/Psychic Baggage/Goodgrief Commune/Endless Melt et al and Jensen Tjhung of Lower Plenty.
Guitar / bass / drums moves that splinter the kinda nightmare USA sound of Simply Saucer/Chrome et al, with loping bass moves that are somewhere between Can’s Hoger Czukay and Jowe Head circa Swell Maps “Helicopter Spies/Full Moon In My Pocket” and driving motorik rhythms beneath raging phased/FX saturated guitar that is as out of focus and flamethrower-perfect as Rallizes w/classic delayed vocals that give the deal a kinda prole threat (Swell Maps/Fall) feel but w/downer ballads that come over like Ohkami No Jikan play The Gun Club and Spacemen 3.
