Body Limits from Melbourne’s Halt Ever came out in early July. It’s like awakening and then embracing a deep psychosis or a having a manic episode. It’s a collection of high tension activity, taut yet sharp. Expect an increase in pulse and maybe some induced paranoia.
Adding some bounce to the current crop of throwback garage revivalists, White Lodge are a tight unit making some noise that will be well appreciated by most ears. It’s that slurring, booze soaked, cigarette abusing voice that really caught me. This is a very fun release.
Bleak days, black nights, searching for solace in the sauce, sweating out a hangover, smoking your teeth yellow; I can hear that stuff in the chords. Curlew place a lot on your shoulders, but few bands reward you so much for your commitment.
