Sydney-based, skewed pop outfit Community Radio present Look Now You're Cursed, the follow-up to their highly regarded 2012 debut Serious Magic. Community Radio are led by former Youth Group and Songs member Cameron Emerson-Elliott, and also feature Patrick Matthews (The Vines, Youth Group), Jen Kevin and Mal McKernan. Early in 2014, as the band was preparing to commence work on the follow-up to their debut record (with cheap mics and ad-hoc gear they'd amassed through eBay), drummer Mal fell seriously ill. During a window of good health for Mal at the start of 2015, the band decided to abandon their plans to record themselves and to get Look Now You're Cursed done as rapidly as possible with the best help going. They headed into Alberts Studios in Neutral Bay with producer Wayne Connolly for four days of tracking, capturing Community Radio's run down, buzzing gear and stripped back elemental pop in the highest fidelity. With Look Now You're Cursed the band has matured and developed, deepening their sound and sharpening their songwriting to a unique singular point. The album delivers eleven tracks of literate guitar pop that brim with melody and mood. "Warm, witty, and whip-smart, Community Radio restore chiming guitar pop to the golden days of Teenage Fanclub and The Go-Betweens. This is timeless, versatile songwriting shot through with up-to-the-minute anxieties." -- Doug Wallen, The Big Issue.
