The garage rock band Food Court comprising Cristian Campano (Vocals/ Guitar), Lewis McKeown (Bass / Vocals), Dan De Santis (Guitar) and Nic Puertolas (Drums) is based in Glebe in Australia.
Somewhat appropriately named as Food Court considering their home-base of Glebe, part of Sydney, is best known for its international diversity and concentration of restaurants though I am sure you wanted to know more than a good food guide. Some-days as a music reviewer it is difficult to settle down with enthusiasm, flicking through bands and putting them on either the ‘listen again another day’ or ‘Kudos for doing what you do but never will be for me’ lists – After four hours of this increasingly depressing process I happened upon Food Court and suddenly all was back in balance.
String sagging bass is harried by percussion that whips around the room like a hamster in a wheel, accompanied by twanging guitars and a vocal which matches the mood as a smile wraps itself from ear to ear. The quartet play with various speeds to inject the moods of the tracks as the slightly slurred sound of Food Court drifts around the room.
I would highly recommend spending some time with these guys who know how to turn a tune, disseminate it and bring it all back together in a delightful soundtrack which reminds of the past, whilst having relevance for today.
