Simultaneously rootsy and grandly poetic, Sydney, Australia’s Spookyland features frontman Marcus Gordon, his sibling Liam on electric guitar, bassist Nic Malouf, and drummer Nath Mansfield. Originally the folky single task of Gordon, Spookyland’s 2010 debut EP, Killin’ One Parrot with Two Rocks, presented his offbeat point of view and piercing tenor — which recalls Natural Dairy Hotel’s Jeff Mangum — aswell as the impact of American vocalist/songwriters such as for example Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Patti Smith, and Bruce Springsteen. By enough time of 2013’s one “The Silly Fucking Thing,” Spookyland was a full-fledged music group. The next year’s Rock and roll & Move Weakling EP discovered them growing their sound by using manufacturer Tony Buchen. To record their debut record, Spookyland and Buchen journeyed to Omaha, Nebraska to just work at Conor Oberst’s ARC Studios. Later in 2015, the seven-minute one “Bulimic” supplied the first flavor of Beauty Currently Beautiful, that was released in-may 2016.
