Bitch Prefect: Marilyn Monroe 7"
Terminal Boredom says...Two songer of pleasant guitar pop from this Adelaide three-piece who you initially want to say are lo-fi, but really it's just more like low-key, as this recording is pretty crisp. The arrangement is just so perfectly simple it's deceiving. "Marilyn Monroe" is gently hooky with sentimental guitar strum and vocal harmonizing and a wonderful wandering solo. Wistful pop with a drum heartbeat. Quite pleasing. "Holiday in America" is a jauntier version of the formula with an excited vocal and nostalgic summertime guitar pluck. Slap a "not punk" tag on this one, but that shouldn't stop if you if you're at all a fan of Flying Nun styled pop action.
