What: Commercial Music by Fabulous Diamonds.
When: August 3 through Chapter Music.
Key notes: Third album for the Melbourne two-piece – Nisa Venerosa and Jarrod Zlatic – following 2010’s Fabulous Diamonds II, which we described as “a reimagining of sonic terrain we all thought abandoned”. Recorded upstairs at Melbourne’s John Curtin Hotel over four days in mid-2011 with Mikey Young (Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Total Control). Artwork by Karl Scullin (KES). Features song titles (a first for the band) and new single ‘Lothario’.
From the presser: “Commercial Music is Fabulous Diamonds’ most textured, luxurious album yet. Whilst their first record was baby steps and stabs in the dark, and their second album reached for an under-produced liveliness, Commercial Music – titled with no hint of irony – is high-brow, young adult contemporary pop music.”
