Here’s the second half of the summer cassette. Highlights include a track from Mikal Cronin’s new LP, which has taken me aback slightly and might actually turn out to be 2013’s most well-rounded release. The Laughing Leaves (could they be The Frowning Clouds’ twin group from Geelong?) appear with the best track off of their brand new, self-released 45. Frowning Clouds’ frontman Zac also appears with his other group Bonniwells, who released their third album not that long ago. “Looking At You” however, is from the intermediate cassette-only release on Anti Fade that I just heard, and shows the group at their rawest and best. Already reviewed, are the albums from Sam Lunsford (now available on tape) and The Temponauts. Among the many albums I haven’t found time to write about yet, Elephant Stone’s (Rishi Dhir of High Dials, Brian Jonestown Massacre) sophomore effort is a favourite, as well as The Go’s new Burger album. And Bad Indians Are On the Other Side is a hugely impressive psych artifact and a big step forward for the Ypsilanti group Bad Indians.
