Still taking a sweep through the end of 2013 and naturally the Aussie hits are still coming. A latecomer from Popfrenzy, Unity Floors' debut album is a taught nod to the 80's Australian heyday. Tracks swing from jangle-pop to a more muscular punk but rather than work against each other, the mesh of styles seems to form one sonic tapestry that tangles influences into an album that's bouncing with energy. There's a weariness just beneath the surface, something that seems to come through in several of the South Hemi hits in the past couple of years and I'd have to admit I'm drawn to the sighs between the chords here. Exotic Goldfish Blues places the duo in the running of bands to keep eyes and ears on in the coming year and with this gem and an RSTB year-ender in Camperdown & Out, Popfrenzy put themselves on the shortlist of Aussie labels well worth your time and import money.
