What happens when Australia's finest purveyors of screaming feedback overkill hook up with legendary producer of Galaxie 500 and Daniel Johnston (among others)? You get an utterly fantastic 5 track CD EP entitled Dark Rainbows, that's what.
The Sunday Reeds follow up their brilliant debut album release with a brand new EP of all new stuff. Recorded by the band and mastered by the aforementioned Kramer, this is a definite musical leap forward from their earlier recordings while still maintaining that very recognisable Sunday Reeds sound.
Last year, the band flew over to the UK to play just a handful of shows, and all of them were hits with fans. At these shows, they unleashed some of the recordings you now have here on this EP. Shiver Up My Vein, the lead track, must take its rightful place as one of the finest songs The Sunday Reeds have written so far. Instantly getting the audience jumping about at their gigs, it's also accompanied on this EP by the fantastic Kiss Me, Kill Me which is just dark fuzz pop at its very best. Other tracks include the excellent Stem Filled Vase—comparisons here with The Jesus And Mary Chain would be lazy, but to hell with it, it's January and we're feeling that way, so let's just say it certainly gives a very definite nod towards that classic band. Other tracks on here are Get Nothing Done and Over, both of which sit perfectly alongside the rest of the recordings included on Dark Rainbows and collectively make up one hell of a great EP packed with jet black noise pop bullets.
So, get your new year off to a fine start with this new EP from The Sunday Reeds... and watch out in the near future for a 2nd album too.
So, this is it, folks... we're getting very near the end. This year, Squirrel Records will close its doors after 45 releases in total. Why 45 ? Well, we like that number, as it's the playing speed of a 7" single. We always said that 33 isn't enough, and 78 is too many. Anyway, Squirrel Records, throughout the years of its existence, has epitomised the true... [more]

Another essential slab of fuzzed up noise pop from The Sunday Reeds. This time, however, the fuzz has been turned down (slightly... only slightly) which pushes the vocals up front a little more, and the result is 2 razor sharp slices of blistering tuneage that conjure up thoughts of The Pixies in places, and the ghosts of old Link Wray tracks in others. Recorded and mixed by the band themselves,... [more]
Debut album from Australia's finest purveyors of black clad, feedback and fuzz drenched pop/rock. Like the love child of some kind of rock n' roll orgy between The Jesus And Mary Chain, Joy Division and The Velvet Underground. If Nico had joined The Ramones, strapped on a bass guitar and a whole lot more noise was added, this is how it might have sounded. You really shouldn't need any more convincing... [more]
