The Goon Sax – Mirror II – Limited Edition, White Vinyl, LP, Matador Records, 2021

Limited white vinyl LP pressing. Since forming in high school, Brisbane band The Goon has been celebrated for their unpretentious, kinetic homemade pop. Mirror ll, The Goon Sax’s third album and first for Matador, is something else entirely: a new beginning, a multi-dimensional eclectic journey of musical craftsmanship that moves from disco to folk to no wave skronk with staggering cohesion. Gone are the first-person insecurities of their school days – they’ve been made expansive, more universal, more weird.
