orion - s/t [cool death records]
dank new wave somehow procured from the gutters housing some of sydney's finest (members of m.o.b., whores, low life, oily boys). miraculously elegant pop songs belying the minds from which they're drawn. ecstatic band in the flesh, too. remarkable how such an inescapable hole of a city, all miserable facades and grandstanding, is starting to produce the best emotionally resonant music this country has to offer.
