Primitive Motion - By Arc Or Chord - Soft Abuse
Australian weirdness from Brisbane. Am I picking up on a Brisbane "sound"? Like the excellent Sky Needle, Primitive Motion bring quite a bit of composure to their wigged-out worldview, and similarly, I suspect both groups are hiding a decent level of musicianship in their clatter, or perhaps get their nice sound from a good ratio of musicians to non-musicians. The tracks here are minimally arranged and rhythm heavy -- some kind of groove is established and then the singer lays down unaffected sing-speak poem-lyrics. The songs that really click are rugged and hypnotic and definitely suggest that these guys have a killer LP in them. Cool stuff. Good energy and fresh vibes.
