Straight Arrows Make It Happen
Sydney garage punks Straight Arrows are releasing their world domination mission statement via debut LP It's Happening through Rice Is Nice Records. The album showcases reverb-laden, catchy, fuzzed out punk garage that marries 60s psych pop with 70s dirty garage, and that has attracted shows with the likes of Thee Oh Sees, Eddy Current Suppression Ring, The Black Lips and Jay Reatard (RIP) in the past, and is likely to continue the meteoric rise of this rapscallions. What is a decidedly new 'direction' for the band is getting some semblance of fidelity in their production, as it is occasionally nice to be able to ascertain what is going on in any one song - well, thats my archaic opinion. Anyway, its pretty ace and well worth picking up.
