Sometimes We're Friends
7" | 2018 | US | Original (Slumberland)
9,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Rat Columns, the ever changing musical project of David West and friends, emerged from the desert outpost of Perth, Western Australia in the late 2000s, influenced by largely anglocentric forms such as post-punk and jangle pop and emitting a jet stream of 7" EPs and three full length albums along the way. The songs included on the "Sometimes We're Friends" EP were recorded at the same time as their 2017 album"Candle Power" in Guildford, Western Australia, in a back shed studio on a rambling riverside property. Beyond West, the Australian Rat Columns line-up of Perth underground luminaries, Amber Gempton, Louis Hooper and Chris Cobilis is featured, as well as musical wunderkind Cohen Bourgault guesting on violin. This recording sees Rat Columns dancing around classicist, German-influenced propulsive guitar pop on 'Sometimes We're Friends', an indie pop gossamer ballad involving an 'Astral Lover', and an unusual diversion into downer, vaguely Young-esque dirge rock on the cheery 'Waiting To Die'. This is the first Rat Columns release on the long-running, Bay Area-based Slumberland imprint.

Rat Columns is the mutable musical project of David West, an artist as prolific as he is
diverse in his output. West is the driving force behind the groups Rank/Xerox,
Liberation and Lace Curtain, he was also a member of Total Control, and most
recently debuted a solo album proper. Whether its forward-facing punk or turning his
hand to crafting sleek prisms of pop, West's credentials check out. Rat Columns is no
exception, always central to his vision and returned to many times since its inception
in Perth almost a decade ago. Over the years the band has morphed and continued
with an array of different friends from the USA and Australia, always finding David
West dancing through the long shadows at its core. Working with many distinguished
underground imprints including Blackest Ever Black, Adagio 830, Smart Guy Records
and RIP Society, Rat Columns have left in their wake a trail of 7"s, EPs and two full
length albums. Now a third album, entitled "Candle Power' is cued for release through
Upset The Rhythm.
