Our ears have traveled far for the last evening of the weekend. Specifically, we are listening to the rocking riffs and robust rhythms of Dark Winning. It is the latest record by Das Phaedrus, a Dunedin, New Zealand four-piece with a literate name and a great sound. There is a good bit of '80s alternative and psychedelic rock, but plenty of pop accents and a bit of jangle as well. But the listener can count on the fact that whatever this band does, they do well. And Dark Winning is attractively offered at 'name your price' to facilitate its movement to your record collection.
Das Phaedrus are Andrew Spittle, Jeremy Taylor, Victor Billot, and Piers Graham.
