Following two excellent EPs from 2017, the debut album from this Australian band continues to move them to the front of the pack. The songs are fresh and lively, combining buoyant rhythms and jangle-pop melodies with atonal guitar chords, rollicking lead licks and a dark, quirky energy flow. On the first track alone, you get a Motown bass run, angular psych/noise guitar riffs and urgently deadpan indie vocals. And that’s just the start of one captivatingly creative song after another. Sometimes recalls bands like Blank Realm, The Strokes, Dick Diver, Scott & Charlene’s Wedding, The Feelies, Television Personalities, Salad Boys, Parquet Courts. With its consistently strong songwriting, pervasive sense of edgy free-flowing fun and fluid tremolo pop twang “Hope Downs” has tapped into something special. Each song feels like it could keep going forever—and you wish it would. Highly Recommended.

Excellent Mastering done on this, Loud, clear with lots of punch! how guitar music should be on wax,
Pressing's a bit poppy on the 1st few tracks, but that's what you get sometimes with silly vinyl colours, it really doesn't matter on this one as the music is so loud and the vinyl looks so good! nice blue swirl on mine..
As for RBCF.. What a great Band!! totally hooked thanks to BBC 6 music and them playing 'French Press' after a bit of streaming I ordered the French Press EP, & Talk Tight on vinyl when it was released, Both are excellent and a must for anyone who has this.
I was a bit fearful when earlier this year during a radio interview they said they had an album coming out because i'm constantly let down with modern bands and artists who only seem to have a few good songs in them and come and go in a few months... Thankfully RBCF are different.. The album is amazing and it makes me feel like I'm a sweaty Brit enjoying an Aussie BBQ party in the 40+ heat ..

Mine too more clear but otherwise is identical to the photos and with the same barcode. You can DL the album in Flac as well as MP3, I wish more bands did this.

My version of this is clear vinyl? Maybe the Europe release?

Easily one of this year's best releases in the guitarpop/indiepop vein of things. The "loser" vinyl is pretty nice too!
