New Start Again, the debut album by Melbourne foursome Dick Diver. It's an intriguing combination of widescreen Australian sweep, '70s New York edge and '90s indie-rock scratch that transcends its influences to become truly honest and exciting. The respectively wry and poetic songwriting of guitarists Rupert Edwards and Alistair McKay lobs Dick Diver up alongside Go-Betweens heroes Forster & McLennan, while their often epic fretwork bears echoes of Television and Yo La Tengo. But bassist Al Montfort's impeccable punk pedigree (UV Race, Total Control, Straightjacket) with help from drummer Steph Hughes (Boomgates, Children Collide) roughs up the band's bookish proclivities. Recorded with Eddy Current Suppression Ring's Mikey Young at an old homestead in country Victoria.
