WIREHEADS - Boys Home
WIREHEADS are an Australian garage/post-punk band from Adelaide who surfaced with a s/t cassette ep in 2013 :(http://majorcrimes.bandcamp.com/album/wireheads-s-t-mcr006). By the time they released their debut album, The Late Great Wireheads, the following year they'd undergone line up changes and added more instrumentation to proceedings : https://wireheads.bandcamp.com/releases.
2014 also saw them put out the Country Space Junk cassette and then later that year they travelled to the Dub Narcotic Studio in Olympia where they recorded follow up, Big Issues, with Calvin Johnson (Beat Happening, The Go Team). https://tenthcourt.bandcamp.com/album/big-issues. Featuring laid back vocals by Dom Trimboli and adding flute & violin to the genre's usual guitar/bass/drums backbeat they're currently receiving glowing reviews and comparisons with the likes of The Velvet Underground, The Go Betweens and even Jethro Tull.
Hypnotically good, this was the recent single from the new album, Boys Home.....
