GOON SAX Mirror II LP Indies only white vinyl in die-cut sleeve

£14.99

RELEASE DATE JULY 9 2021

Since forming in high school, Brisbane band The
Goon Sax - the trio of Riley Jones, Louis Forster
and James Harrison, best friends who take turns
writing, singing, and playing each instrument -
have been celebrated for their unpretentious,
kinetic homemade pop.

 ‘Mirror ll’, The Goon Sax’s first album for Matador,
is something else entirely: a new beginning, a
multi-dimensional eclectic journey of musical
craftsmanship that moves from disco to folk to no
wave skronk with staggering cohesion. Gone are
the first-person insecurities of their school days -
they’ve been made expansive, more universal,
more weird.

 ‘Mirror II’ is intense, the sum of everything that has
always made The Goon Sax great: robust
sprechgesang, raw lyrical candour, ascending
guitar pop structures that would make the most
storied jangle bands blush, elevated into their
newfound narrative verisimilitude and expanded
sonic experimentations. Each member’s
idiosyncratic style comes across on record: Riley’s
bubblegum noise is more present than ever
before, Louis’ moody, supernatural avant-pop and
James’ psychedelic folk.
