If someone came up to us on the street and said, "Hey can you describe Australia's Fabulous Diamonds to me in one word?" We would say, "Echoey." Since that will never happen, and since we would be assholes for answering a question in one word, we're going to talk about them here. Fabulous Diamonds utilize echo and delay to great effect, throwing it on top of guitars and saxophones and old drum machines with what seems like total abandon. But when those things cohere, the songs become worth returning to. Fabulous Diamonds' new EP is available right now from Siltbreeze Records, who are mostly responsible for releasing good albums by bands that sound like they play twenty dollar guitars through cell phones and record that onto a Talkboy.
