Seminal Aussie group The Triffids have had a couple of their LPs reissued through PIAS, and unsurprisingly the band’s 1983 debut LP Treeless Plain is among the number. This is a florid collection that synthesises various contemporaneous strains of post-punk. Joy Division’s doomy prognoses, Durutti Column-style dreaminess, The Smiths’ 60’s-indebted indie and the energetic pop of Orange Juice all combine here. It makes for a wistful, often lovely listen. This new edition of Treeless Plain includes seven bonus tracks that The Triffids taped live for radio.
