Another Comfortable On A Tightrope show, another Australian post-punk band from Melbourne...Proudly presenting CONSTANT MONGREL. Coming out of the same bustling machine shop that brought you the likes of Terry, Primo, The Shifters, and Total Control, CM's latest album, Living in Excellence (La Vida Es Un Mus), picks up the hauntological post-punk trace between crumbling industrial wastes and the mirrored glass of neoliberal arcades:"Recorded in the summer of 2017 in a studio, produced by Tom Hardisty and Mastered by Mikey Young, ‘Living In Excellence’ brings a more formed sound and aesthetic with striking riffs and catchy rolling bass over an often unhinged, vibrant rhythm section. Added for this on particular tracks is a fried, effected saxophone with warm synths and analogue sounds added to enhance the LP’s thoughtful textures. The new record has a sharper British Post Punk expression reminiscent of the usual suspects in Wire, Blitz, The Mob, Siekiera and The Fall, while also exploring elements found outside of the genre from Les Rallizes Dénudés to Youth Crew Hardcore to Country music and beyond, there's greater depth and sensibility found amongst the angst."
