GOSPEL TRUTH, THE: Jealous Fires: LP

This record is fucking great. Imagine a mix of ‘80s Australian swampy swagger and driving ‘90s noise rock and you might get somewhere in the ballpark of what this record sounds like to me. The rhythm section really drives that underlying noise rock influence home with a full and really loud drum sound doling out the non-typical beats paired with sometimes spastic bass lines. But the Australian post-punk influence is really what’s front and center here, as the guitar and vocals really pair well to capture not only just a sound, but also a feeling.
