Here is your chance to get a carpet burn. What - you ask, why would I want a carpet burn? The answer is that this Carpet Burn is a good carpet burn, with no pain other than a little bit of cash to own the new four-track 7", I Can't Believe It's Not Carpet Burn. Admittedly, the title is a bit quirky, but this band's specialty is tuneful, quirky, and even absurd blasts of indie pop. While the songs are sparse and a bit obtuse, this is music that entertains and engages the listener. It is as if you have been made party to an inside joke, even if some of the nuances have not yet revealed themselves. It is an off-kilter party, but everyone is sincerely invited.
We featured the final track, "Butterfinger Hands", recently (link) so we will give you two more of the songs below.
Carpet Burn is Amanda, Kayley, Louis, and Tam, who are members of other Melbourne bands such as Girlatones, Permits, Tam Vantage, Gutter Girls, Blonde Revolver, and Plastic. I Can't Believe It's Not Carpet Burn is out now via Spoilsport Records.
