Australia’s Aarght Records has been an underground label to pay attention to for quite some time now. The Melbourne operation responsible for some of the best releases from Total Control, Cosmic Psychos and Dead Farmers continues to please with the release of the first “proper’ Ausmuteants record, Amusements.
Hailing from Geelong, Victoria, Ausmuteants seem to revel in the immature, with a singer who feels the need to express in great detail how he pissed himself (twice). It’s obvious from the first listen that Ausmuteants don’t take themselves too seriously, which, as a synth-band, honestly comes as a relief. And although the light-hearted side of Amusements is appreciated, some of the best songs on the record take on a more serious approach, especially the track Tinnitus which is one of the best songs I’ve heard all year.
