Maddest Moments b/w Architectural Charades 7" by The Stroppies on Tough Love Records

The Stroppies - Maddest Moments


  • $8.00

Melbourne, Australia's Stroppies 2018 single recorded with Zac Schneider of Totally Mild between Phaedra Studios and a small garden shed. The record sees the band moving away from the limits of the living-room studio for the first time and into more robust sonic territories, but no-less off-kilter. 
Both songs deal with specific types of urban anxiety. The A-side, 'Maddest Moments', espouses a kind of inside-looking-out perspective. Over-stimulated outside, you return home to find you’re still stuck. The B-side, 'Architectural Charades', is a tribute to ugly buildings and the minds that conceive them. Driving around town and shaking your head. So it goes. 
Regarding the new recordings, the band note that, “the last two 7”s have been a road test of sorts. Expanding (or reducing) the working methodologies, throwing stuff at the wall and seeing what sticks, and trying to get an idea of what might work in terms of production in the future. They’re not definitive statements, rather little esoteric textures in the narrative of the band to date.”
