It’s strange how a region in the world can seem to craft a sound that’s forever associated with the area, like say New Zealand and Flying Nun. As of late, Melbourne’s been churning out casually infectious guitar pop ditties like nobody’s business…and I obviously put Ocean Party high upon the list of purveyors of that sound. But, just behind them, in a slightly less prolific manner is Rolling Blackout Coastal Fever, who’ve just announced the release of their debut LP for Sub Pop. This song is definitely going to get stuck in your head, especially that damn chorus. Admittedly, I’m a sucker for this region and this sound, so of course I’ll be picking up Hope Downs when its released on June 15th.
