“This self-titled debut album from rigid Melbourne, Australia,
punks Eastlink is the best full-length to come from Down Under
since… well, since the last really incredible release on Aarght!,
RIP Society, Homeless or any of the other countless many fantastic
new labels that have appeared from that country over the
past few years. For those paying attention, it’s hard to not be
blown away by the amount of amazing records coming out of
Australia lately. This album is no exception and stands near the
top of the heap.
“Eastlink features members from a variety of bands you already
love like Total Control, UV Race, Repairs, Lakes and
Straightjacket Nation, just to name a few. With four guitars,
one drum and two vocalists, they splinter and drench two-note
monotonic riffs the rest of us never noticed were right under
our noses the whole time. These nine tracks range from harsh,
crude, fuzzed-out one-note pounders to droning soundscapes.
“Like The Fall, Eastlink clearly digs repetition and aren’t
afraid to use it as a weapon. For these Australian doper-scuzz
minimalists, it’s all about the riff. Heavy, punishing, repetitive
riffs where four guitars lock on to something intense and
primal for four minutes. The band simply pummels tracks like
‘Overtime’ and ‘Spring St.’ into the ground, pausing only for an
occasional frenzied guitar solo or blast of feedback and noise.
Meanwhile, ‘Dinnerchat’ and ‘Thatcher’s Dead’ are weirdo
space-rockers that wouldn’t sound terribly out of place on Brain
Records in the ’70s.” —Jay Hinman, Dynamite Hemorrhage
