Witterings from an old indie kid
Split single from two of the current crop of Melbourne bands, both of whom have contributed three tracks each. However, at time of writing, only one track from each band is (was) available for streaming.
The wonderful Parsnip have featured on these pages before and on Counterfeit they deliver another slice of girl band inspired goodness. The Shifters are a new name on me and they contrast greatly to their release mates. Only one thought crossed my mind whilst listening to Photo Op and that was is that The Fall I am hearing? Actually it was two thoughts and the other one was how great was that. On the basis of these two tracks the rest of the EP should be a belter!
Hip Blister is out soon on French label Future Folklore Records on 12″ vinyl and digital formats. Pre-order it from here.
