The anticipated new album from Melbourne's Black Cab is another inspired collection of songs, this time themed broadly around the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal. Evoking the tension, exhilaration and sonic spectrum of the time, Black Cab once again prove masters of mood and narrative. Early electronic, analogue dance music, synths, and spoken word samples are all employed to craft a unified record that extends on their earlier post-punk and psychedelic styles. Crafted over several years, the LP also features contributions from Lowtide's Lucy Buckeridge, Mon Brumby, Shags Chamberlain, and former Black Cab members Steve Law, Anthony Paine, Rich Andrew and Alex Jarvis. Needless to say, it's a Gold Medal performance all around.
