Lost Animal : Ex Tropical

Track artwork

On January 29 Sub Pop subsidiary Hardly Art will give a worldwide release to the acclaimed 2011 debut LP from Melbourne’s Lost Animal. To all intents and purposes the handiwork of former St. Helens frontman Jarrod Quarrell, Ex Tropical‘s strange mix of lo-fi, distorted synths and off-kilter drum machine rhythms make for an intoxicating queasy-listening session that owes as much to the primitive brutality of electro-punks Suicide as it does to the highbrow gothic storytelling of fellow Aussie Nick Cave. Listen to “Say No To Thugs” below, and stream the whole album over at SPIN.

About foamhands

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
