BDTD 189 scrabble - live at real bad
now Skrabbled, new release on Quemada. Debut release for Scrabble, an Australian underground group that features Conwae Burrell of Extrafoxx, Bek Moore of Clag, Jason Bright, Emily Wade and Mark Spinks: BDTD describe them as playing “quintessential Brisbane pop, girl/boy vocals, more Kitchen’s Floor than Go Betweens” and it’s true that they swing between frail, heartbroken post-Velvets drone pop and moments of scabrous, oiky DIY that give way to chiming minor chord paeans that could almost be the greatest hits of the singer-songwriter wing of Expressway. - c.
