Yet more essential, non-standard (no drums! no bass!) pop music from Australia, this time from Circle Pit's Angie Bermuda and Harriet Hudson. "Silver and Gold" should be lovingly embraced by admirers of both Dum Dum Girls' downer harmonies and The Garbage and The Flowers' scorched tape arc-welding of the Velvets to Sonic Youth. Unfortunately, Black Petal only had 265 copies pressed so it seems destined to be another of those 45s that appears on mailorder lists briefly and then just vanishes. For instance, it went 'out of stock' almost instantaneously when Volcanic Tongue listed it. There's an almost complete - it's also available in the UK via Infinte Limits - list of stockists on the Black Petal website. Now to turn the stereo up to indecent and give Circle Pit's rollicking Siltbreeze lp a long overdue spin!
