About Time lp by Chook Race

Melbourne is the gift that keeps on giving and Chook Race nail their city's sound bang on. About Time has the same low-level alienation of Scott & Charlene's Wedding's Para Vista Social Club, it's got Dick Diver's suburban pop hooks and it rattles along with Bitch Prefect's Big Time ruggedness.

There's no getting away from the idea - and why would you want to - that About Time looks to The Modern Lovers' small but perfectly formed back catalogue for its main starting points. Pre-punk garage rock riffs, Velvet Underground adrenaline and pinpoint emotional turmoil. I really couldn't ask for more.
