Australian band; for people who like lo-fi, they’ll be a perfect new addition to your favourite bands list.

FCC clean

*1. Over the Hill(3.41)- unique(weird) intro atmosphere, upbeat, Stephen Malkmus-like male vocal, Dinosaur Jr.-ish tone, rollicking ,classic indie rock track
*2. Shiner(3.57)- haunted, afternoon stroll, freewheeling, idle, catchy riffs, swoon
3. Angeline(3.00)- Sweet!, post-teenage uncertainty
*4. Cinema West(3.28)- unforced, relaxed, pieces put it all together, smooth
5. When I Shake(5.04)- vocals and music skip down the road together, closely connected; gentle, soft, walls of effects appear in the middle, and then back to delicate atmosphere
*6. Cherry Red(5.07)- slow, lonesome, reminiscent, slow/soothing-tempo, (sort of Thom Yorke/Chris Martin vocal?), delicate-simplicity, heavy building distortion near the end
*7. Be Fine(3.22)- twinkling guitar riffs and breathy vocals; lonely, West Coast derived guitar line
8. Home(1.33)- begins with a distorted clutter pasted straight from the opening bar of Pavement’s ‘Silence Kit’ , overdrived guitar, jangling Strat
*9. Cold Stream(6.47)- a beautiful dream, enchanting night, optimistic, lazy romance, lethargic
