The Stroppies - The Stroppies
Hey, we want to spend more of your money. It may seem a burden, but you'll thank us. Today's suggestion is the self-titled album from Melbourne's The Stroppies. Given our admiration for many of the other bands in which its members ply their trade, we are inclined to consider it an indie super group. But regardless of whether you agree with that designation, we think you'll find the quality of the music quite compelling. If you are fans of Guided By Voices and Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers, this will hit your sweet spot.
The Stroppies are Angus Lord, Claudia Serfaty, Stephanie Hughes, Rory Heane and Adam Hewwit, who are members of various bands, including Dick Diver, Boomgates, The Stevens, Primetime, Possible Humans, White Walls, and See/Saw. The self-titled album is out now via Tough Love Records. The vinyl is sold out already, but digital versions are available.
