If you need something mellow today take a listen to the brand new album from HTRK, a London based techno duo. The whole thing has a sexy, ambient, breathy vibe to it. If you dig music like Junior Boys or Rhye, you’ll probably be into this.
Of all the themes that run through Psychic 9-5 Club, love is the most central. The word is laced throughout the album in lyrics and titles—love as a distraction, loving yourself, loving others. Standish’s lyrics explore the complexities of sexuality and the body’s reaction to personal loss, though there’s room for wry humour—a constant through much of the best experimental Australian music of the past few decades.
