I haven’t always thought of Australia as a hot bed for awesome music, but the sheer number of rad bands emerging from Melbourne and Sydney these days have me thinking differently. In fact, if you can’t name your favorite contemporary Australian band then you aren’t listening to nearly enough new music. Melbourne-based Free Time, led by songwriter Dion Nania, are one of the bands working hard to capture that honor. Imagine loose and jangly Real Estate-styled lo-fi with squealing guitar solos and you’ll have a decent idea as to what they are serving up.
The LP is available for preorder from Underwater Peoples.
