Fingerless have been sitting down at the musical banquet since 2009, sampling very small plates of acid-folk in oyster sauce, deep-fried rock ‘n’ roll, steamy ambient soundscapes with chilli, dried and salted neo-psychedelia, and fresh electronica with lime. Washing all of that down with an ice cold medieval folk ballad and maybe a sweet dungeon-synth liqueur or two, the Meanjin/Brisbane based band can’t quite put their finger on their favourite flavour just yet.
Helpfully, the band has prepared a few 'tasting guides' in the form of three albums (5:18, Organ Control, and Outhere) an EP (Does It Really Though?), and a smorgasbord of more recent singles.
But wait a second. Stop chewing. Hold on just a flame-grilled minute! A new tasting guide has just been announced! This must be it, the hotly anticipated fourth album, fresh from the oven. There are some words here, baked right into the crust! "The long-awaited 4th album, Life, Death, & Prizes, is out now through 4000 Records".
Better get into this while it’s hot.
