Received a 7.3 rating from Pitchfork. Ausmuteants are four twenty-nothings from Geelong, Victoria raised on a diet of seminal avant punk like Chrome, the Screamers, and let's not mention Devo. As a two-piece, Jake (synth, guitar) and Billy (drums) flushed that obsession with the release of their Split Personalities album in 2012. They've since added Marc and Shaun on bass and guitar respectively and worked '60s songwriting ideas, disco rhythms and a subtler brand of theft into finely crafted pop songs, recording twenty two earlier this year. We picked the best twelve for Amusements. Ausmuteants are liked by Vice and Dangerfield despite or because of their synthesizers, their swearing and their youthful good looks. For what it's worth, Ausmuteants do not like Vice or Dangerfield.
