Here’s a four-way split on Kraak, the fifth in a series of four-ways focusing on “caviar from Oceania”. First up, Mad Nanna have a lean and lazy bit of lo-fi slacker pop with that ramshackle Antipodean jangle beloved of The Clean and their contemporaries, then there’s one from Pumice which is all mournful piano and distant, defeated vocals. There’s some kind of weird peaking situation going on with the backing vocals which is really haunting and otherworldly and broken. I like this.

The other side is a bit more visceral, starting with Kraus’s oddly anthemic ‘Dog On The Loose’ with its pounding beat and simplistic African-sounding guitar and organ groove interrupted only by a wondrously clumsy guitar solo. Finally we finish with Slug Guts’ ‘Creepin’ Out’, a hazy sprawling bit of darkpop which brings to mind Nick Cave and The Cramps with touches of Psychedelic Furs-esque sax - apparently it’s an outtake from their recent album on Sacred Bones but it’s certainly too good a song to leave unreleased. Very interesting record.
