Sydney's unstoppable synth punk rock kings GEE TEE continue their reign over the world. You will play it, and flip it, and play it, and flip it again. Hooks galore! Do we detect perhaps a little less panic in their rock than before? Could this mark a move towards a more mature GEE TEE? We are hoping not! But hey, when you can pull of a mid-tempo anthem like "ROCK PHONE" you are in truly rarified air. Every song delivers! Every song is great! What else do you want from a record, a back rub? Behold your new favorite record from your new favorite band! This record makes you feel happy, and hopeful, and glad these lunatics are out there making music. Really have no business being able to do such a thing in such messed up times, but GEE TEE makes it happen! Full-length album coming late 2022 on Goner. Edition of 600 copies.

***Originally conceived as a solo-project by GOLD COAST's KEL MASON (also of DRAGGS), GEE TEE's Death Race EP is the total antithesis of its title. For a “death race”, simple-minded listeners couldn’t feel more enlivened by Kel’s goofy, lighthearted brand of synth-infused, surfy garage rock lined with an ear-pleasing arrangement of mechanical whirls, buoyant keytones, alien-like vocal distortions, and of course, spindly, simplistic chords emanating from a guitar most assuredly decorated in all sorts of sweet flame decals. What derives from this unorthodox assemblage of instruments is something of an otherworldly orchestra, a perky, lo-fi charade that’s more incapably delightful than it is confusing or overwhelming. Death Race is a unique, spacey venture in the vein of the most infectious of garage rock bands, while remaining pleasantly digestible to satisfy even the least adventurous of listeners.
