TASSEOMANCY

Q (UK) - - Review | New Albums -

DO EASY BELLA UNION, OUT 18 NOVEMBER Spooky sonic land­scape in­hab­ited by twin sis­ters from Nova Sco­tia.

Equally in thrall to early Kate Bush and Twin Peaks com­poser An­gelo Badala­menti, for­mer Aus­tra mem­bers Sari and Romy Light­man started trad­ing as Tasseomancy in 2008. The fact that the cover of their first EP fea­tured their tea-leaf-read­ing Rus­sian Jewish great-great­grand­mother per­haps tells you ev­ery­thing you need to know about the pair’s sound: this is dream-pop keen to tune into the oth­er­worldly. As lovely as Do Easy fre­quently is, the two are of­ten lit­tle more than a prod­uct of their favourite records: Mis­soula could be an early ’ 80s Kate Bush out-take, while the ti­tle track sounds like exit mu­sic for a David Lynch film. Once Tasseomancy tran­scend their in­flu­ences, they could be some­thing special. TOM DOYLE
