It is, however, the final part of a trilogy which includes two tracks from the aforementioned album Time Enough at Last and Dial Up Tone. The theme of the three songs deals with “being in a relationship with a person who’s emotionally unavailable”. It’s the band’s poppiest … Continue reading A Sunday Trio

It’s a garage punk track and, despite Mujeres coming from the same aforementioned city, their male vocalist sang in English. However the … Continue reading Eterna Joventut – Tu Amor

The Belafontes – Desk Job

Melbourne’s The Belafontes have a new EP out collating their past couple of single releases (Big Man and Steppin’ Out) and a few new tracks. It’s two of the new tracks (or new to me) here that get me jumping around. 8 Bit Town is catchy, thrashy punk with the protagonist seeking departure from “this backwards town” whilst Tired deals with the monotony of everyday … Continue reading The Belafontes – Desk Job
