Cable Ties – Far Enough (album review)

by Woody on March 26, 2020

The Melbourne trio’s Merge debut is the jolt you need. If you’re like me and staying the fuck inside your house these last two weeks, this album will be the charge to your nether regions that will shake you out of your doldrums.

The albums opens up with Hope, something that we’re all clinging to these days. The tune sounds like Heartless Bastards cranking a punk tune; something I am here for. While about bigger macro issues than Covid-19, it does ring true during these times. Stop sitting on your ass. Try to make a positive impact. And if you can’t do that, the least you can do is stop being a cunt and think about others during these trying times.

A track I really like is Sandcastles. It’s got a bit of Sleater-Kinney feel to it, with the call and response. Best I can tell is that lead singer has an issue with people just criticizing someone who’s trying to make a difference cause you don’t agree with every single thing.

Merge has done it again. If you like your rocking with some social conscious, run don’t walk to this album.
