Cash sav­aGe & the last drinks

Good Cit­i­zens (Mistle­tone/In­er­tia)

Australian HIFI - - TOP PICKS -

With this, her fourth al­bum of fierce and fas­tid­i­ous mind-melters, it’s as ap­par­ent as ever that Cash Sav­age can do no wrong. At a tight nine tracks, Sav­age and Co. use Good Cit­i­zens to cut right through the bull­shit, tak­ing lis­ten­ers on a roller­coaster ride over waves of dry, goose-bump­ing melan­choly and sharp, acer­bic wit from the mo­ment Bet­ter Than That bleeds in with its first ear-prick­ing plucks. A slow-burner, lay­ers of gruff gui­tars and glassy fid­dle seep with a dark hu­man­ity. It’s in the brighter cuts that the LP makes its most last­ing im­pact—the pit-ready Hu­mans and Court­ney Bar­nett-ish Pack An­i­mals— but it would be re­miss not to also high­light the darker slith­ers of Sav­age’s mind, such as the heady Sun­day and the wind­ing, gut-punch­ing ti­tle track.
