New Aussie three-piece Silk Ears seriously push the limits of basement naiveté. Songs continually threaten to fall apart; slothful male/female vocals materialize briefly and then fall back behind the sweltering hiss of Dictaphone fidelity. Still, the Ears pack in a healthy range of moves; post-punk guzzlers, languid, syrupy off-beat pop, and some darker spooks. It only takes a second to trace their roots to the Nueve Invention of Door and the Window or the scummier bits of Flying Nun, but Silk Ears seem to take even greater cues from the Surreal: the House/domestic, the ‘schizophrenic’ and abnormal.
