The Australian alt-rock quartet Tape/Off released the LP Broadcast Park on the 13th.
Four years since their last album – Chipper – the eleven tracks of Broadcast Park (available on bandcamp) find the quartet in fine spirit with a release that holds a quiet self-assured confidence which strikes the listener from opening to closing note in the roughly forty four minutes run-time.
Unhurried compositions measure their pacing through percussion or bass guitar as each composition deems fit, which enables Tape/Off to create, with alacrity, music of ever different mood.
The interweaving of the two six string guitars allow the songs their breadth of process which in this release threads from fuzzy garage through stoic solemnity to trippy psychedelia with the vocal equally able to meet requirements with passages of imploring passion through half-spoken rhetoric to mumbled query.
The fifth track is Wake In Fright.
