Album of the Week (3/12) Eddy Current Suppression Ring ~ Primary Colours

Primary Colours is the second album by Australian garage punk band Eddy Current Suppression Ring. The album was recorded in a suburb of Melbourne over a 24-hour period in August 2007. The album was first released on Aarght! Records in Australia only on 5 May 2008, then on 9 September 2008 on Goner Records in the United States, and finally in the United Kingdom on Melodic Records on 17 August 2009. (Wikipedia)

I was extremely lucky to catch a set of theirs at Serra Bowl in July 2010. Supporting acts included: Thee Oh Sees, Fresh & Onlys, Sic Alps, and Ty Segall. One of the best shows I'll ever witness, no doubt. Just had the poster framed and remembered how much I loved this band. (DT)

Primary Colours peaked at No. 13 on the ARIA Hitseekers Chart in June 2008. It received generally positive reviews from critics, who praised the album's minimalistic sound and warm, personable lyrics. It won the Australian Music Prize in 2008, and was nominated for the ARIA Award that same year for best rock album, but lost to The Living End's entry, White Noise. (Wikipedia)
