Oslo House - Plateau

Omi Palone were the only band in the UK's DIY punk explosion of the last 5 years who knew the really exciting action was in Australia. And even if their sandpaper riffs and gritty approach sometimes leaned towards Eddy Current Suppression Ring - never my favourites - they tempered it with Feelies lugubrious jangle.

Philip Serfaty, lead Omi Palone, has broken out on his own as Oslo House and has taken The Feelies angle  -  more Here Before than post-punk jangle - via modern Americana. And it's magnificent.

Debut single Plateau is hazy psychedelia like Woods' Sun and Shade and soft pop like Belle Adair's most melancholy moments. More, please.
