BLANK REALM - Grassed Inn (Vinyl)
Notify me when back in stock
Brisbane quartet Blank Realm return with their most blistering release to date.
Grassed Inn expands further the fluorescent pop leanings that shone through last year's critically acclaimed Go Easy, The result is an album packed with
soaring psych melodies & love-stained lyrics, one of the sharpest pop records to
emerge from the current Australian underground renaissance.
Having moved on from their open-ended experimental beginnings, Blank Realm
have veered toward songs in the manner of later-era Big Star, The Zombies, or
Echo & The Bunnymen, all refracted through a grimy basement lens.
Blank Realm comprises of siblings Daniel Spencer (drum & vocal), Sarah Spencer
(synth & vocal) and Luke Spencer (bass), with the addition of Luke Walsh on guitar & production, This new record is much catchier than anything they have previously crafted, yet also much darker.
Grassed Inn is a startling prospect, one that harnesses the spirit of Go Easy and
and propels it into one of the most exciting pop albums of recent years, Expect coverage in the indie media, community radio, Triple J, Mess & Noise, street press, etc, Touring Australia in February.
"Balancing the arty with the party to make for a set of danceable, hook-filled songs
that bubble and bloom with an almost biological rampancy, shooting out tendrils
of strange, snaking melody in every direction like vines enveloping a ruin." -
"A cracking collection of skuzzy, fuzzy, psych-rock songs that recall Royal Trux
and Sonic Youth" - Uncut
"They produce a nerve-jangling, occasionally fuzzed-out psychedelic stagger.yelping and wailing like ghosts haunting a party." - The Wire
'Band to watch in 2014' - The Guardian
