The Uplifting Bell Ends, now there’s a name to remember.
Straight outta Sydney, this bunch truly delivers some of the finest sunbleached, DIY sounds available. Now, there’s lotsa inspirations to be heard from the masters through their classic songwriting (Young, Parsons, Clark, Byrds, Stones etc.), but channeled through the collective Bell End’s quirky aesthetics and playful arrangements it’s a quite unique and uplifting experience. Extremely Aussie and utterly charming at that! The 14 tracks in here tied together by small clips of pub-chats, continuously raising the good vibes while preparing you for the next tune. Brilliant stuff! Been streaming this one to death since it dropped digitally last week, and I’m really stoked to get the wax overseas for some proper listening. This one is truly a rare treat and a real gem of an album that I’ll treasure from here on out! Huge thanks guys <3
Third Eye Stimuli Records has pressed only 100 copies of the limited Twisted Berry variant on Purple Vinyl, as well as 50 standard Black. The latter might be repressed once sold out, so be sure to grab that succulent berry while available!
