Recorded over the Easter weekend in 2017 with Liddiard at his home in the Goulburn Valley, Modern Convenience documents the bands creative alchemy and unique approach to song writing.
Noisy, subversively catchy and rhythmically sophisticated, opening cut “Scorpio Moon” sets the tone. “Mirror of Venus” retains the urgency and the tough, tempered rhythm hooks. “Neighbourhood" and “Tell Me Twice” continue with themes of introspection and menace. In addition tothese apocalyptic jams, anthems of personal resilience also appear and contain a savvy grasp of the impossible loneliness of the modern era, especially apparent in “Bad Time At The Hilton” and “Get In Front Of Me, Satan”. Call and response vocals form the basis of “Submit” and “Kidney Auction Blues” which throw girl group/60s surf on its head in an aggressive turn of tables which leaves the listener contemplating capitalism, consumerism and the black market price of a human kidney.
