Blank Realm is a Brisbane, Australia-based rock band unique for its hard-living sonics and the fact that three of its four members are siblings. Like a Generation-Y Supreme Dicks, they write the kind of songs that sound like they’re about to fall apart (but usually don’t), and are more melodically affecting for all their wooly tangents. Go Easy, which they released on Siltbreeze and Australia’s Bedroom Suck last year, is being re-issued by England’s Fire Records on March 4th. With its arching guitar refrain and hoarse, scream-sung vocals, “Cleaning Up My Mess” is the kind of late-night burner jam that seems to rage against its own, drunken predicament—and that’s the most touching kind of burner jam there is.
