The next break out band from Australia. Stunning listen from start to finish.
Three years since their last release Melbourne's Constant Mongrel (featuring members of Terry, Woollen Kits, Taco Leg and Nun) return with a new full length LP. Constant Mongrel has developed over time with previous releases on RIP Society and Siltbreeze. Chipping and changing, adding to their sound and lineup while maintaining its Australian oddness. The new album has a sharper Post Punk expression reminiscent of Wire (the first three albums), Swell Maps, 'Second Empire Justice’ era Blitz, The Mob and Siekiera. Living In Excellence brings a more formed sound and aesthetic with striking riffs and catchy rolling bass over an often unhinged, vibrant rhythm section. Added for this on particular tracks is a fried, effected saxophone with warm synths and analogue sounds added to enhance the LP’s thoughtful textures.
LP - Rough Trade Exclusive. Limited to 100 Copies on Solid White Vinyl.
