Tunes.

Serving a bright introduction to the second half of the year, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have made reminded music lovers just why we love them with the release of their new single, ‘Mr. Prism’.

As the first taste of new music from the Perth band this year, ‘Mr. Prism’ is relentless in its approach championed by chaotic builds and irresistible rhythms, serving as a fiery reminder of the type of band Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have grown into over the last few years on the road.

In an ode to their latest offering, we’ve brought on guitarist and vocalist Jack McEwan and keyboardist Chris Young to curate a weekend playlist of all the bands they’re loving right now.

Chris’s tunes

Dream Puppy – The Sweet Enoughs
Like a soft, warm breeze, this opening track from Paul Bender’s (Haitus Kaiyote) side project will have you swooning. Guaranteed ear-worm.

Pure Imagination (Lo Fi) – Sam Gendel
Windows 95 meets Willy Wonka. A folkloric, free-jazz rework of a classic by LA Saxophone wizard Sam Gendel.

You – Blunderland
Masterful first offering from local Perth producer Toby Batchelor (Superego). Anticipating large waves from the debut EP when it drops.

Girl and Robot with Flowers (Part 1) – The Greg Foat Group
If this instrumental opening jam gets you hooked, then you may as well play the entire album straight after. Rude not to.

Never (Lagos Never Gonna Be the Same) – Tony Allen / Hugh Masekela
Never has this track’s chorus been more pertinent. For all the Fela Kuti fans out there.

Jack’s tunes

Eli – Caribou
Had this album (Andorra) on repeat for the last few days. Such a bliss record to lay outside in the sun and zone out too. Caribou has changed quite dramatically now, going more electronic with his production, ‘Andorra’ as well as ‘The Milk of Human Kindness’ have such a unique, raw lo-fi aesthetic to them that gives you tingles every listen, they sound alive.

Into The Deep Time (One Sun) – Candy Claws
This track came on mid trip to an Adult Swim segment with one of the best animations I’ve ever seen. It felt like the universe had just exploded in front of me. Huge track.

I Found The F – Broadcast
I follow this page on facebook called ‘Glitch Artists’ and someone had distorted some footage from an 80’s camcorder of a lady dancing in a red dress but every pixel was melting as the next one moved, this song was playing over the top and it was magic. Almost had a tear.

Be Proud of Your Kids – Melody’s Echo Chamber
Hadn’t heard this song in ages before the other day, such a warm tapestry of harmony’s, synths and droning guitars. The whole track has a really nice playful nature as well, classic early Tame drum and bass production that keep propelling the tune further and further forward.

Quitter’s Raga – Gold Panda
This song has such a great emotion surrounding it, always sends me off with a thought. The glitching samples accompanied with that sitar and stabbing piano give something unique I hadn’t heard before, it’s a rare song which makes it all the better.

And while you’re at it, don’t forget to give Psychedelic Porn Crumpets’ new track a spin.
