Listen: Sky Needle – End Games

Don’t worry, because there’s a new Sky Needle record coming out. Entitled Debased Shapes, it’s due later this month through Bruit Direct Disques. The Brisbane group’s line-up has expanded since 2012’s Rave Cave: they’re now a seven piece consisting Sarah Byrne, Joel Stern, Alex Cuffe, Ross Manning, Michael Donnelly and Daniel Jenatsch. Needless to say, the pattern of Sky Needle recordings getting progressively weirder is consistent here: ‘End Games’ is the kind of hysteria-inducing cultish pop we all imagined would soundtrack cafes in the year 2013. It doesn’t, but it should.
