VIA LULU'S:

Any new entry into the Shifters catalogue is always welcome around these parts and as we patiently await the follow up to 2018’s excellent full length “Have a Cunning Plan” their latest offering as part of Captured Tracks singles series is no exception.

Kicking off the A side, “Left Bereft” is a menacing stone cold four to the floor stomper that takes a page out of the Cale school of guitar based rock and roll minimalism before collapsing into its own lyrical world weariness.

B Side “Australia” opens with a little electronic psychosis before kicking into an unrelenting acoustic and organ driven take on recent progress. It's reassuring to know I’m not the only one having problems with the NBN.

VIA CAPTURED TRACKS:

Melbourne's Shifters are quite possibly my current favorite purveyors of your guitar-based rock-and-or-roll. In fact, they come from the best scene of that genre, the one in mullet-ravaged young Australia (a country and sub-continent named after the B-Side this release!). I had the pleasure of seeing them at the Tope in an incredible bill that included Terry, School Damage, Parsnip and so many more and have been buying up their (mostly hard to find) releases since. Now on Trouble In Mind, you can actually find them outside their native, rugged lands. Love live The Shifters. - Mike Sniper
