Another stellar slab from the NYC label that's brought us all sorts of Aussie goodness previously. Best described as a real sleeper. Imagine Klaus Dinger fronting the Silver Jews or Pale Horse Riders attempting to cover Neu!'s Lieber Honig and you maybe get the idea of what's going on here. Slowed indie-rock guitar, hushed vocals and a bit of free jazz action behind the kit. Backroom Velvets slowed to way less than 33 1/3. A relaxed listen all the way though grabbing yr attention immediately from the start.

The debut 12" vinyl title from Love Chants, a multi-state project of three of Australia's leading contemporary underground figures: Anthony Guerra (Antipan, Black Petal label et al) on guitar and vocals, Michael Zulicki (Mad Nanna, Albert's Basement label et al) on guitar, and Matt Earle on drums (XnobbqX, Stasis Duo, Murra, Breakdance The Dawn label et al). This incredible trio creates a delicate, delightfully-damaged, and emotionally potent, slow-motion form of avant-rock. Packed with enough emotion and subtle power to induce tears, with guitar-based meditations and hushed, other-worldly vocals, revealing an apparently elegiac grace that's capable of bringing your already crushed soul to its knees. Earle's free-form drumming nestles neatly amid the voids, whilst Guerra and Zulicki's guitar works magically evoke reflections on what strike these ears as soul-bursting expressions of the sum total of human emotions around love: love found, love lost and mourned, and love yet to be discovered. I tell you: you're gonna love it. Melancholic yet uplifting. Each sleeve features a unique--and stunning--pasted-on piece of artwork by Guerra. Released by the New York-based Quemada Records in a limited run of 250 copies.
