Notes

Goaty - "Recorded to computer with federal bills (pineapples, lobsters), guitars, drums, voices, keys, hi-fructose atmospherics.

Old Growth Cola, band from Brisbane, brainchild of Lewis O’Leary, play flush pop. Their songs sparkle with preteen, part Paisley Rock romantics and part energy drinks. There’s something that reminds me of watching cartoons: short attention spans, relentless squints and squeezes, and Lew’s classically bashful whisper. At first I’m fooled by OGC’s melodic brightness. Then I catch onto a languid ambivalence. Only near the end do I start to hear something really sad sitting just beneath the surface."

The catalog number comes from the Goaty Tapes website and does not appear on the release itself.
