Amici is the debut album from Australian three-piece, Primo. Their member have previously been in Terry, Shifters and Film Expert. From what we’ve heard they sound a lot like drummer Xanthe’s previous band, Terry with a ‘90s-ish deadpan delivery, similar to Mary Timony’s various musical projects. LP limited to 500 copies and CD on Upset The Rhythm.

On the sleeve picture Primo look like they are heading out to a high powered business meeting wearing matching blue skirt suits. It's as if they've stopped for a selfie, a natter and a sandwich on the way. Their music though is certainly more scratchy and disorganised than your average business luncheon. Like a lot of others it takes its cues from the minimal post punk of the likes of Kleenex and the Slits. It's rudimentary and spindly, at times it sounds like they are barely holding it all together but that just adds extra charm and being Australian they have that lovely accented vocal stylings that you can hear everywhere at the moment from Courtney Barnett to Stella Donnelly.
But as it drifts between fuzzy, scuzzy lo-fi and sweet harmonic lo-fi it becomes one of those albums that is just lovely. It floats by like a leaf in the wind, short sharp lo-fi pop for lazy summer days.
