Hober Mallow - Change
Hober Mallow came to my attention on Soundcloud, sporting some extremely tasty Disco edits. His selections were indicative of a fellow with impeccable taste, so I was intrigued to know more. Turns out he makes some slinky, lo-fi electro-soul, reminiscent of perhaps Andrew Weatherall or the kind of 80s oddity that Andy Votel would dig up from 1980's Romania.
I don't often associate Australian music with subtlety, despite the welcome and high-quality resurgence of Disco from Down Under, so it's great to hear someone keeping the avant-garde spirit of unheralded Australian 70's sci-fi pop group Cybotron alive and well!
If anyone can correct my ignorance of Australian avant-garde music, please feel encouraged to drop a comment.
