I had the pleasure of witnessing Psychedelic Porn Crumpets turn a sold-out Factory Theatre to pure liquid chaos the night before this album was released.

‘Giver, Lover, Pet’, the new single from Perth’s Lo, is a pulse-quickening slice of jangling dream pop that enthralls and captivates. Recalling her fellow Australian, Hatchie, the single has mountainous choruses and guitars that shimmer and sparkle like sunlight dancing off the glittering Western Australian waters. Pure driven pop and a hint of deep melancholy …

Directed by Jonathan King, Damien Binder has released a sumptuous video for his slow burning, yearning single ‘Don’t Know What’. Mostly a black and white piece with colour only present in a brief shot of the iconic photo of Binder, it consists of Binder performing in an archetypal Australian pub, with a nod to the …

Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have made themselves known in their vivid, exuberant careers as one of Perth’s finest exports and most inventive bands. With just enough breathing space after their fourth album ‘SHYGA!
