From time to time Elsewhere will single out a recent release we recommend on vinyl, like this one . . .
There's some serious head-down melodic thrash here (the opener Wanna Feel Good, The Lightning One, the brief Book of Scrolls) and motorik rhythms (Ghosts, the seven and half minute Bright Shining Lie which a psychedelic highpoint) .
Here too synths provide a widescreen, futuristic backdrop on the mesmerising IML, the six minute Ursa Minor is an intense brooding throb and Death Car at the end is explosive post-punk boogie getting lift-off.
Nine songs, 35 minutes, diversity delivered with a sense of pop consciousness.
You can hear this album at bandcamp here and it's free to download it. But it is also available on solid black, limited edition vinyl from Replicate Records. Send a nice postcard to Replicate at 55A London St, Lyttelton 8082.
