You can tell a lot about an upstart band from what they would put in their Tinder bio. Take, for instance, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, who were recently assigned that theoretical task by the UK music mag DIY: “PPC enjoy long walks on the beach with our girlfriends,” they wrote, “until the acid wears off and we realise we’ve been dragging round a mannequin by the frills in an op shop.” See? Already we’ve learned that they’re Australian — charity thrift stores are called “op shops” down under — and that they have a fondness for hallucinogens.

Psychedelic Porn Crumpets hail from Perth, the seaside city that previously birthed garage-rock band The Drones and psychedelic outfits Pond and Tame Impala. Based on their third album And Now for the Whatchamacallit, all three acts were influences, while more vintage hometown heroes like INXS and The Triffids were not.

Frontman Jack McEwan and guitarist Luke Parish are also inclined toward heavy guitar riffs of the Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin variety, though McEwan’s comparatively chipper vocals hover above the din, occasionally slipping into a pleasant falsetto. The album’s not exactly a sprawling work: Its 10 songs clock in at 33 minutes, a number of which are taken up by meandering instrumental interludes. Still, for those who enjoy rocking out to songs about fearing work and finding God in a tomato, one could do considerably worse.
