Norman Records review of Love via Paper Planes
The Ghost of 29 Megacycles come from Australia where it's sunny and people have corks hanging from their hats and Alf Stewart lives there shaking his fist at children and people say "I can see the pub from here" sometimes. However, they seem happy to ignore most of these things in favour of sculpting sheer, blissful surfaces of drone from organs and guitars before topping them off with occasional shoegaze-style breathy female vocalising. And on 'Love Via Paper Planes' they do a very fine job of it, the sonic maelstrom occasionally reminding me of a more hopeful Nadja. Edition of 500 on Sound and Fury.
