I just can’t get over how great the Eddy Current Suppression Ring is. They have a new record coming out soon I think, but their most recent, Primary Colors, is mind blowing.
While sounding completely fresh and authentic, this band recalls the Velvet Underground, JSBX, and Rhys Chatham. Musical, punk-bloozey, and minimal. Seriously minimal. The last half-minute or so of Primary Colors’ opener, Memory Lane, is just nice, dirty guitar.
Anyway, these Australian dudes are good, and make a good argument for a non-ironic and unaffected return to stripped down garage.
Here's a wikipedia link.
