Listen: Shady Lane ‘Built Guilt’ Full Album Stream

Written by Brayden Darke on May 18, 2012

Sydney four-piece Shady Lane have released their brand new album Built Guilt today, which you can preview below. It is the second and follow-up to the band’s own mastermind (Jordy Lane) 2009 release Here We Go, Down The Black Hole, which saw him eventually joined by Pete Avard on drums, Sarah Jullienne on synth and Conrad Richters (Richard In Your Mind) on bass (with Mark Piccles of Tin Sparrow on bass touring duties).

Built Guilt’s ingredients include healthy levels of cynicism and a kitschy quirk; it’s beautifully crafted pop, twisted just slightly. The album pairs analogue synth and radiant vocals that float dreamily through your ears with the rawness of live drums and louder, prouder and playful guitars. The result punches you in the head, heart and gut with the power of a heavyweight, yet soothes and nourishes, as cathartic to experience as it was to create. From the playful pop hooks on Convenient Face Hinge to the soaring textures of Dumb Hope, the movement from lilting simplicity to guitar pedal parties to synth experiments is as mind-bending as it is uplifting.
