7/10 Clinton Staff review, 31 August 2016

They made this in a SINGLE DAY! Surely it takes even more than a single day to play all these songs. Ian has already mansplained to me that Chook means Chicken in Australian to I think I'm on board with what is going on here. They make scrappy but perky lo-fi Australian pop with nods to the Go Betweens, the Clean, the Cannanes and Scott and Charlene's Wedding. It's all very rough and ready with oodles of charm replacing an ability to come up with a song that could be seen as a future classic. We shouldn't get upset because there's no 'Cattle and Cane' here and instead we should concentrate on enjoying this ramshackle jangling. Album highlight must be 'At Your Door' an absolutely glorious piece of twining pop that taps into the exact same mysterious plane as Randall Lee's twin bands Nice and Ashtray Boy from the early '90s.

To sum up: uncomplicated, unpretentious antipodean guitar pop for anyone who likes Flying Nun records.
