New Music: Erasers "Fault Lines"
Ears Have Ears are no strangers to introducing folks to some of Australia’s absolute finest and most innovative musicians (if you’re not tuned into what they do, follow them over here). A week ago they treated us to “Fault Lines”, an original soundtrack from Perth’s finest duo, Erasers. Made up of first takes recorded over a few days, Erasers build upon their brand of melodic drone, characteristic of their LP ‘Stem Together’, in a longer, more fleshed out form. The duo have always occupied their own unique space for me over the years, kinda sounding like a slightly more playful krautrock act yet with a much more distinctive Australian feel - the perfect soundtrack to your unsettling midnight trek through the mallee.
