Melbourne’s Ninetynine continue to be the best band that nobody cares about. Their last album, the annoyingly titled Worlds Of Space, Worlds Of Population, Worlds Of Robots, came out in 2006 and they kind of toured a little bit around the east coast of Australia and North America. And then… nothing. I mean, why these guys are not big shots in the world of indie guitar rock is a mystery, since they do atonal post-punk blitzkriegs at least as well as Love Of Diagrams, if not better. And they’ve definitely done them longer. Heck, lead lady Laura Macfarlane was even in the original line-up of Sleater Kinney, which is basically fodder for a Mastercard commercial: “Hanging out with Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein at the right time? Priceless.”

Anyway, this track has been around since late last year, when Ninetynine released a three-track promo disc to radio, but I thought I’d post it since a) it is bitchin’ and b) there are no results for Ninetynine on the Hype Machine. Boo, internet. There’s no reports anywhere of a new album for these guys either, but hopefully they stick to this super-melodic Electrelane-y kind of vibe. And increase the organ. MOAR ORGAN.
