"This is far and away my favourite album of 2018. Nothing has come close. I discover all kinds of music in a 12 month period - old; new; iconic; obscure. It’s very rare that an album or song from a stated year will top my list. This album is rare, indeed. Falling just under 30 minutes in length, its 11 tracks are concise, largely unadorned and, ultimately, pop songs expertly crafted, played live by a well-drilled band, with an occasional (tiny) overdubbed solo or double-tracked vocal, but the results are a full bloom of colour, an old but lovingly maintained fibro house well off the road, down a long driveway full of greenery, and contained inside its walls, a museum of knick-knacks - a collection of momentos, like ornamental spoons from around the globe; matchbooks from forgotten pubs - like stamps in an old passport." - Ben Fogarty
