Shepparton Airplane aren't just a band with an awesome name, they also happen to be a remarkable band. And no, none of them are from Shepparton - they hail from Melbourne and are more rooted in '90s post-punk and '80s oz-rock than the '60s psychedelia that the name may suggest. Almurta, the follow-up to their 2016 self-titled debut, and takes its name from the Victorian town where it was recorded, by their guitarist and engineer Matt Chow on a family farm. It's driven by the twin guitars of Chow and Ezra Dowling and powered by the rhythm section coupling familiar to fans of The Peep Tempel of Steven Carter on drums and Stewart Rayner on bass. The recording perfectly captures the balance of the band's abrasive post-punk guitar sound, pounding rhythm section and highlights without any fear their craft of writing songs laden with memorable pop hooks. "No Prize," the opening track is no exception. The song captures the album's character, albeit with Carter's abstract Cubism lyrics.
