Nova Scotia - Self-titled 12"
Out of Stock
Nova Scotia are a Brisbane five-piece whose glorious live shows and two sold out EPs have earned them a huge local following, festival slots and supports for the likes of Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks, Built to Spill and the Vivian Girls. Nova Scotia’s 90s revival sound references the slacker stylings and ragged melancholy of American greats like Pavement, Guided by Voices and Sonic Youth, but with a more euphoric and psychedelic exuberance. The band’s trademark three-guitar attack weaves around melodic basslines to create irrepressible songs that are both beautiful and fierce. Nova Scotia were born in 2006 from the heart of a Brisbane scene centered around radio station 4ZZZ, Rockinghorse Records, and essential bands like Turnpike and Seaplane. They released the “Bear Smashes Photocopier” EP in 2007. It quickly sold out, as did their follow up, 2008′s “Maritime Disasters”.
