.Here is what Mess & Noise has to say about the new album –
What: Mobile Cemetery by Footy. When: May 3 through Lost & Lonesome.
Key notes: First album from Melbourne’s experimental electric-piano duo, featuring Dick Diver guest keyboardist Lewis Mulvey and Paddy Gordon of “pagan devotional” trio Stre4m. Influenced by “underground pop; the cerebral jazz of Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett and other ECM alumni; and the clean, driving Kraut-rock of Neu! and Cluster.” Also by “restless, meandering drives through the industrial fringe suburbs of Melbourne’s ‘mid-west’.” Follows a 2011 cassette. Vocals appear only on ‘Workin’’ and the title track. Launching on Sunday, May 12 at Northcote Social Club with Pearls, Mad Nanna and Backstabbers. Stream and download the rippling closing track ‘Sea Home’ for free below.
From the presser: “A nuanced and exploratory album, thematically cohesive and even ‘conceptual’.”
