The de­but EP by Brisbane's Refedex is a heavy steam­roller of dark noise rock, sludge and post punk that's of­ten rather slow and at­mos­pher­ic with­out ever get­ting te­dious or los­ing its ir­re­sistible groove. Al­though their over­all vibe sounds ul­tra-clas­sic to me, i'm hav­ing trou­ble pin­point­ing ex­act­ly where i've heard this kind of thing be­fore as their sound kin­da tran­scends the usu­al genre bound­aries, among oth­er things in­cor­po­rat­ing the kind of dark amer­i­cana blues & coun­try vibes you might ex­pect from an 80's Sci­en­tists record or more re­cent­ly from US post punk group Bam­bara, while on the more clas­sic noise rock side of things, you might draw com­par­isons to con­tem­po­rary Bands like Al­pha Strat­e­gy, Lug­gage, Heads or Trop­i­cal Trash. You might al­so find a bit of Cows, U-men or Scratch Acid in there, each of them spun on half-speed. What­ev­er you wan­na call it, this is first rate shit!
