My second time catching these guys, the first is being when they played with Mikal Cronin and Thee Oh Sees the month before in Oakland.

Eagerly awaited in my area by those who weren't able to make this Aussie supergroup's last appearance, they were even more intense this time, with the highlight for me being Carpet Rash, one of the great songs so far of the 2nd decade of this century.  "Please, please me", the perfect dystopian anthem for our times.

I was perfectly positioned right in front of guitarist Mikey Young, who as some of you are aware also plays for Eddy Current Suppression Ring.

The set was adroitly concluded with a Swell Maps cover (Full Moon).
