Here’s a group I’ve been meaning to write about for a good while. Star Slushy from Brisbane really made an impression on me when they played Melbourne in March. The music on their first tape Spikes / Spires is an amalgamation of freeform noise, punk vocals, unusual percussion and wayward melodies. Tracks like “Star Slushy S/Way” sound like they were recorded live just as they came together in the studio. All seven tracks are great, unfortunately the release is now sold out. Don’t miss out on the early release of Astute Palate’s debut, also on Eternal Soundcheck.
