California Dreaming

Inaugural release from Melbourne's A Colourful Storm label (check out their podcast series too, Sleeparchive's indie-pop selection is quite something), a bona fide Oz classic, and an absolute delight. Possibly (probably?) you've encountered Denial's woozy minimal synth cover of 'California Dreaming' down a dimly lit YouTube back alley at some point, and if you did, chances are you fell in love with it, guiltily or otherwise - whatever, it works because they play it straight, teasing out and amplifying all the melancholy latent in the original without taking the piss. 

B-side 'The Weatherman', is downcast jangle perfection - fully justifying ACS's comparisons to Television Personalities, Adrian Borland and Felt. Originally released on the storied M Squared (home to Systematics, SPK, Scattered Order, Makers Of The Dead Travel Fast...)  in '82, on a 7" now beyond the budget of good sense, this fresh pressing (remastered, with splendidly literal new artwork) is a very welcome act of public service, and the perfect tonic for that sweet, sour slide into Autumn.
