I’ll get right to it…. I’m not going to even wait until the end to tell you that Car Stereo War’s ‘For Your Comfort And Safety’ is a LoveSound Album Of The Year Nominee, so maybe now you’ll pay extra close attention! This is not to be confused with DJ Car Stereo Wars… No no… I enjoy this multiple times more!
Car Stereo Wars is a 6-member band hailing from Melbourne, Australia. I need to find out what they’re feeding indie artists over in Australia these days, because the music coming from that continent seems to be taking the gold medal lately, and Car Stereo Wars seems to be leading the way. It’s no surprise that their music has recently been played on the likes of Ghost Whisperer, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, & Smallville.
Each member seems to keep a very small responsibility on each track (minimalism at it’s finest), but no song would be complete without the teamwork involved here. ‘Organic trip-hop’ comes to mind here, and some of the most beautiful vocals (both male and female). Then throw in some pure, smooth pop, and finish it off with their title track and a bit of anything-but-common folk… ‘For Your Comfort And Safety’ gives me an immediate feeling that if these six Aussies continue to make records, that they will certainly be remembered for years to come… Success is inevitable for Car Stereo Wars!
