RIYL: Guided By Voices, The Clean, The Chills, Tall Dwarfs, Courtney Barnett
Label: Tough Love Records
The Stroppies fit somewhere betweenÂ the British post-punk world of The Raincoats and Young Marble Giants and the jangly New Zealand Kiwi PunkÂ scene of The Clean and The Chills. Â Their twee-influenced first single Gravity Is Stern undulates with a lofi ‘bedroom recording’ sheen, puttering along a punky art rock riff that could’ve passed for an early Television jam session. Â Immediate and addictive,Â if this track is any indication of the rest of The Stroppies’ debut, I’m gonna buy the hell out of this.
Tough Love Records only has 100 copies of the record on rub-colored wax. Â If you dig any of Tough Love’s catalog (Communions, Yung, Cruising), The Stroppies are most certainly for you. Â Grab a copy after the ‘buy’ link, and remember that this one’s shipping from the UK. Â Shipping is gonna be a tad higher.
