The Triffids Reissues Come Out Friday

I spent the first few days of my break finishing off “Grant and I,” which mentioned the Triffids as one of the other early Aussie acts that influenced the country’s musical landscape. I’d only listened to the band casually, as they weren’t as dear to me as the Go-Betweens, but I’m really excited for the reissue of Treeless Plain and In the Pines this Friday. I love the way the band seems so relaxed in their songs, seemingly foretelling the country’s flare for casual pop. Here’s a little ditty I’ve been enjoying over the last few days to hopefully pique your interest and have you revisiting the band’s catalog along with these reissues.
