Perth’s Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have been compared to Tame Impala and King Gizzard, which essentially means they defy comparison.

SHYGA!, their fourth album, is a marvellous mess – a joyous mélange of styles and influences, from stoner rock to classic rock to fuzzy pop – which captures the band’s chaotic live vibe and recalls the glory days of Spiderbait. It’s a big album – 14 tracks – but none of the songs outstays its welcome. At the heart of the record is a glorious nervous energy. “Isn’t life strange, how it starts to make sense,” Jack McEwan sings in the closing cut. “You work it all out then you get old and forget.” The conclusion? “Live while you’re young, enjoy each day.” Mission accomplished.

SHYGA! The Sunlight Mound by Psychedelic Porn Crumpets is out February 5 via What Reality? Records.
