RVG have released what might be the best Australian record of the year, perhaps even the best on Earth in its entirety. As Monorail so eloquently put it, it sounds like the lovechild of Robert Forster and Ian McCullough. Sonically speaking, this is very much a retro release, but the songwriting puts it on par with the very best music released today.
“Heart Paste” is probably my favourite song of the year. I’m so gutted that I missed them at Roskilde. Please do come back.
