Ball Park Music - Conquer the Town, Easy as Cake (2010 EP)
a five-track servicing of pop deliciousness that covers the musical spectrum. Bookended by the opening radio-bliss, naughtiness of ‘iFly’ (you’ll see) and the simply sublime strum of ‘Western Whirl’, the EP also features the clap-tastic ‘The Ghost I Saw When I Was Dreaming’, recent single ‘Sea Strangers (I Don’t Even Know You)’ and the four minute masterpiece ‘Hello Anais’, with a climax and brass solo bound to catch Tarantino attention.
Having produced their debut EP Rolling On The Floor, Laughing Ourselves To Sleep themselves, the band opted to work with Tristan Hoogland at Brisbane’s Psi-Fi Studios this time around, cutting over 15 songs. Partnering three of the resulting songs with brand new productions from frontman Sam Cromack, the EP shows the sextet’s impressive diversity, songwriting prowess and clever musicality.
Still a band in their infancy, Ball Park Music have quickly formed a strong fanbase around Brisbane, finally taking their crowd-pleasing affair to Sydney recently, opening for Hungry Kids of Hungary’s sell-out show at Oxford Arts Factory with Boy & Bear and Ernest Ellis. Previous single ‘Sea Strangers (I Don’t Really Know You)’ featured a voodoo-fest that quickly became a Home & Hosed blog feature as well as snaring Indie Of The Week title with Rage.
