Witch Hats are descendants of the fine tradition of Australian music that has followed bands like The Birthday Party and The Scientists. Visceral, engaging and unapologetically loud. Their album Cellulite Soul was definitely one of the best records of 2008. Their songs always seem to be teetering on the verge of collapse, but there’s a very clear narrative to each of their records holding them together. Best given your full attention.
They need to bring out a new EP soon. Until then, you need to listen to this track off their excellent 2006 ep, Wound of a Little Horse.
