Purplene - Purplene LP

This adventurous and brooding self-titled album by Sydney band Purplene is regarded by most as their definitive work, recorded by Steve Albini. A classic Australian record originally released 2004, finally now on vinyl and digital platforms.

This band should have been huge. Fantastic slo-core at times, post-punk, pre-emo. Fragile verses, and it gets sophisticatedly loud only at times where it should. Recorded by Mr. Albini. Sounds perfect.


Originally released March 15th, 2004
