Always top quality out of Hobbies Galore and this time the latest down the chute is from label boss / ex-Twerp Alex McFarlane. With another limited release that blends his pop and experimental selves, McFarlane taps into cosmic pop and synth float over the course of ten new tracks. Standout “Event Y” pits his gnarled guitar against a fizzin’ set of keys. It’s a perfectly bent piece of pop that finds the niche between catchiness and cultured cool. The song swaggers then stumbles into melancholy. It’s a beautifully sighed and singed gem that proves McFarlane doesn’t just have an ear for some of the best Aussie artists, he happens to be one himself. The tape is out now and limited to 100.
