“It’s Happening” – STRAIGHT ARROWS
Garage rockers Straight Arrows have joined the likes of SPOD, Seja and Richard In Your Mind at Sydney imprint Rice Is Nice.
Forming almost three years ago, Straight Arrows have released a couple of 7” records. A formidable live act, they’ve supported and toured with the likes of Thee Oh Sees, Jay Reatard, The Black Lips, Eddy Current Suppression Ring and Deerhunter.
Graduating into the realm of medium fidelity, the group moved into Tim Done’s archaic equipment museum, Hanging Tree, for a few days and recorded direct into his strictly 1950s equipment, resulting in a release where almost all of the instruments can be heard. Mixing with the awesomeness that is Brent Griffin/SPOD, the record took on a fuzzed, melodic, and reverberated budget psychedelic bent.
