Chook Race - About Time

About Time from Melbourne's Chook Race delivers ten tracks of garage and power pop that, while it won't separate them from some of their notable peers on the hometown scene in terms of genre, should earn them a good look based on the quality.  There seems to be a bit of '60s garage feel to the guitars on many tracks, but there are surfy tunes ("Good For Me"), dusty California guitar pop ("Time"), jangle pop ("Outbound"), and note-perfect slacker pop.  You can stream the entire album at the Bandcamp link, but I've included a few of my favorites below.

Chook Race are Carolyn Hawkins (drums) Rob and Matt.  About Time is out now.  You can obtain a digital copy from Bandcamp.  Bandcamp also is your friend for vinyl in Australia, but US fans probably should use the link for Easter Bilby Records if they want vinyl.
