1/2/3/4 — #86 — No Way! Sit Back

Lots of great new releases to share, including the excellent debut full length from Lonely Stretch. This is the musical side-project of Matt Reiner who plays guitar in the psychedelic rock band from Adelaide called The Dunes. Lonely Stretch is a departure from the psych-fuzz-drone of The Dunes and provides a platform for Reiner to present his song writing and distinctive vocal style. The emphasis of the band is on simple song structures and melodies that echo a number of Australian underground acts including Ed Kuepper, The Triffids, The Go-Betweens, The Church and Chad’s Tree. As well, excellent new releases from And The Kids, Rozi Plain and Claire Anne Taylor.

We chat about a debut album, which turned out to be much grander than it was intended to be and the horror of knowing it hadn’t been released. From being championed by the late great Francis Lai, to Scottish Indiepop royalty collaborating with him on his 2009 release 49 Arlington Gardens, this is a story of perseverance.
