SDZ Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
Cheerful psych dreamers the Mantles return with a new 7" that displays their talents both in and outside of their favourite genre. "Memory" is something of a raw take for the band, buoying a certain post-punk influence that sounds hard-won and jangly. It's complemented by the trusty b-side "Undelivered".
Melbourne based Oldmate was initially the solo project of Pat Telfer from Australian band Bitch Prefect (what a name) but has since progressed into a band of 7-10 strong musicians including members of Wireheads and Peak Twins. Still predominantly led by Telfer, ‘It Is What It Is’ is Oldmate’s debut LP, and continues in the same melancholy and discordant vein as earlier material, summoning the spirit of Syd Barrett and Lou Reed, while also recalling Beat Happening circa 1991, not to mention a slightly distinct likeness to their fellow Aussie natives The Go Betweens. Sounds good to me!
