The Psychedelic Porn Crumpets continue to assert their status as one of Australia’s hardest working bands – pandemic be damned – in announcing the release of their new album, “Shyga! the Sunlight Mound”, set for release in February 2021. for the Perth group, creativity and production hasn’t stopped in 2020. Despite much of this year’s tour plans being put on pause, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have used their time off road to continue preparing for the release of their fourth studio release, and an eventual blistering return to stages around the world.

Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have already given fans an early taste of the forthcoming “Shyga! era, with ‘Mr. Prism’ in august. the creation of “Shyga! the Sunlight Mound” especially off the back of 2019’s huge album and “Now For The whatchamacallit”, came together in a different environment for McEwan and the results speak to the band’s evolution and McEwan’s evolution as a songwriter. “for the first time in a long time i was home without any tours booked, no work, no deadlines and I felt free to create. my writing process became ritualistic; every morning starting with a small walk to the local bottle shop at 11am and writing whatever flowed, allowing myself to design in all styles without boundaries, and not trying to theme the album early on. I haven’t had the luxury of writing this way since the first record, which i spent almost a year working on. it felt like I was myself again, creating without opinion or constraints. gliding through weeks with a day seeming to pass.”

I’m chuffed with how the album has turned out. For me the goal was to create something that effortlessly flowed from track 1-14 while shifting moods, gears, tempos and styles without losing energy. I wanted the overall vibe sounding like a cohesive piece that swirls with glitched out 70’s-inspired guitars, Zeppelin-esque drums and a booming P-H phat litmus sturdy fuzzy bass tone that hopefully you can crank with the old folks over a coupla cold frothies. 

They’ll be limited edition colour vinyl releases for each territory – details coming later on! Keep your eyes open.
And our brand spanking-new tune ‘Tally-Ho’ gets it’s first spin on Future Sounds with @anniemacmanus on @bbcradio1 tonight at 7pm(UK).
Can’t wait to share the new tunes with you, we’re extremely proud of this one!
All the best,
Jack
