One of Australia’s most intriguing darkwave electronic acts is revisiting its stellar 2015 debut EP. Mollusc’s self-titled effort is a gripping example of the depth and nuance evident in the burgeoning genre over the past few years, and this remastered effort further solidifies the duo’s reputation as experts in the art and is a prophetic predictor as to the quality of their subsequent works. It Records is releasing the remastered version of the EP, which comes paired with a collection of remixes from some of Mollusc’s talented contemporaries.
Pronto/Pronto is a hard-hitting, groove-laden, teeth-gnashing gyration machine. Pronto has come forth with a thrilling release that blends no frills punk with garage-rock-meets-almost-pop characteristics. One of the more dance-friendly punk records of the year, Pronto/Pronto encourages body movement and could be the perfect album to get your non-punk friends into punk.
This album is a unique beast. I am pretty new to the Eastlink mythos and this LP is my first taste of the band – I gotta say, I am pretty chuffed with this.
