Vintage Crop from Geelong have taken two years to follow up their second LP, but in August their new album Serve to Serve Again is out on Anti Fade and Upset the Rhythm in Europe. It’s full of quirky post-punk that is as heavily indebted to The Fall as early Monochrome Set. Like their friends in Program and Gonzo, these guys know their way around a hook but also more abrasive guitar sounds. The vocals are mostly shouted rather than sung, which leaves the melodic interplay to the guitar and bass as on first single “Gridlock”. This is a rock album that is unpretentious and truly original. The title is inspired by the famous Italian supermarket Piedimonte in Fitzroy.
