A fourth album by the full-on Australian psych rockers, the Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have given themselves space to write mostly as a consequence of the forced pandemic touring hiatus and have produced a melodic noisy blowout.

On first listen I was struck by the Sgt. Pepper feel, certainly in the track Sawtooth Monkfish, and when reading founding member Jack McEwan’s thoughts on this release he cites that very album along with Nirvana’s Nevermind. While certainly less grungy, PPC maintain their noise level infused with some genuinely tuneful oomph. Never a band to ponder their shoes too much, the album trundles along in bouncy quicktime, forming a fuzzed-out rock soundtrack to every BBQ this summer…well, in Oz at least.
