stream Chook Race’s ‘Around the House’


Melbourne band Chook Race release their new album, Around the House, this Friday (9/2) on Trouble in Mind / Tenth Court. Jangly and poppy, warm and friendly, the album has an unassuming charm that wraps its way around you upon repeat listens. Nearly every song has a big hook — Chook Race are not afraid of “bah bah bah” choruses — even if they’re demurely presented. It’s a terrific album, very much in the tradition of early Go-Betweens or The Wedding Present, and you can listen to the whole thing right now — an album stream premieres below.

Chook Race’s U.S. tour gets underway soon, hitting NYC for two shows: September 24 at Cake Shop with Hamish Kilgour and September 25 at Union Pool with RipsTickets are on sale.
