:: Old Mate - s/t 7" (Major Crimes AUSTRALIA)
Old Mate - s/t 7" (Major Crimes AUSTRALIA)
This is the second release from OLD MATE since their 'Word is Bond' cassette of 2012. The sensitive side of the troupe comes through with two golden hits of low down struck out pop." - MAJOR CRIMES
Second release from Old Mate, the solo project of Pat Telfert from Bitch Prefect which goes off in a seemingly loner-rock direction on these two tunes. "I Think of You" is a real grower, he doubles his vox for extra moodiness and the sax jaunts give it a bit of a sleazy Eighties feel that I really enjoy. Almost tricks me into thinking it has a Roxy/solo Ferry vibe at brief moments which is definitely a good thing. "Throwin' Down" is depressed folk-rock but still aggro in some vague way - the vocals have a bit of a MC-styled delivery and sullen bravado over what sounds like one of the tunes from the Twin Peaks soundtrack with a haunting keyboard echo and another fantastic sax solo that falls apart at the end. This record is far better than you're thinking it is - it's tough to put a tag on it that won't make it seem generic (loner-folk-rock?),but whatever it is Telfert has a massive amount of style that elevates this above the pack. I'm even surprised at how much I like this - but I'm also a sucker for sax" .(RK)TERMINAL BOREDOM
