King Tears Mortuary – Asleep At The Wheel Of Fortune 7” EP (Vacant Valley)

still-single:

image

Six sounds of boundary-free pop mayhem from a Sydney band that sounds as appropriate in 2014 as it might’ve opening for Toy Love in 1979. Bright female vocals take the spotlight as the melodies surge and the drums pound, fistfuls of notes crammed into 90 second bursts of energy and mannerisms…

I do love ‘em, don’t know if that’s enough to check them out, but…..they’re also interviewed in the upcoming Dynamite Hemorrhage #2.

Australians. They’re all over Dynamite Hemorrhage Radio #46. The exiled convicts of yore have sprouted creative progeny several links down the generational chain, and now a week doesn’t go by when some top-notch Australian band doesn’t arrive in our inbox – and therefore onto this show. So DH #46 is represented well this time by Australians through the years – from the brand-new (Scrabbled, King Tears Mortuary, Clag, Straight Arrows, Southern Comfort and Eastlink) to those from nearly fifty years ago (Pip Proud, pictured here). We even tossed in some Americans, Brits and New Zealanders from the ages as well.

The show’s a little over an hour and features other new stuff from Buck Biloxi and The Fucks, Sneaks, Honey Radar, Dark Times and even Allo Darlin’ – whose singer, get this, is Australian! Good on ya, AU! Download or stream it below and feel free to grab some of the older shows as well.

Despite having a cover image that looks like the opening credits of Silicon Valley, the second KING TEARS MORTUARY single continues the winning ways of its bent, lo-fidelity pop predecessor, “Safe Sex”.

The Australian unit put forth un certain joie de vivre that is absolutely infectious, with girl/boy vocals and tonal shifts that range from developmentally-delayed bashing to screeching noise to winsome, albeit raw and loud, pop. Fantastic stuff, and I encourage you to try ‘em both.
