As you may know, much of the music we stock is Very Serious Music, which has an entirely valid place on the musical landscape and all but when you have to listen to every record it can get exhausting, and it’s a relief when something light and easily digestible comes in. Today my light relief has come in the form of this delightful LP by Newcastle, Australia’s Gooch Palms, a drum and guitar girl-boy duo who play lighthearted slacker punk with charmingly thin and spare arrangements and a lovely jangly fuzzy guitar tone.

Think an Australian version of The Lovely Eggs but less wilfully irritating than those two, with more of a smooth ‘60s pop influence (especially evident on numbers like the doo-wop influenced ‘You’ and the dizzy power-pop of ‘Hungry’). The interplay between the two singers goes a bit B52s-ish overleaf on ‘A Sun, A Moon’, another cracker. Sometimes the boy does Elvis-style crooning like Glenn Danzig. If you’re into slacker pop you’ll probably like this a lot because they’ve got those casual good vibes down perfectly. Totally likeable guitar pop like only Australians know how to make.
