The Stroppies – Maddest Moments/Architectural Charades


The Stroppies (another brilliantly named band), also from Melbourne Australia,released this single back in May, following their self-titled mini LP. This is a nice piece of early 90s inspired slacker indie that recalls the milder moments of Parquet Courts, The Clean and Sarah Records band The Orchids. Maddest Moments is woozy and wacky, with a kind of Pavement b-side swagger. Look out for the sample at the end which is just bizarre… but funny. Architectural Charades is perhaps our favourite of the two songs, with it’s nonsense lyrics, crooked organ parts and silly guitar lines.This is a strange slice of indie rock but right up our street! Looking forward to hearing more from The Stroppies.
