Some Beautiful Species Left

Broadly taking a post-punk template for their music, but infusing it with elements of dub, classical music and krautrock, Melbourne band EXEK return with their third studio record Some Beautiful Species Left. Thematically concerning the human-driven degradation of nature, it was specifically composed in the studio, during the recording process itself. 

It Is What It Is

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!
