From Reuben
Although it is similar to a lot of indie music, it is still a catchy and upbeat album that stays consistent all the way through

From Brad1770
I love artists who name check their heritage , bands such as Wilco (Chicago) , The Replacements (Minnesota) and The Go-Betweens (Brisbane) quickly come to mind and now you can add Melbourne's R.B.C.F to the list with the wonderful 'Hope Downs' with these examples:

Track 1: "An Air-Conditioned Man"
Lyric: 'Under the Jacaranda'
Explained: a Jacaranda tree is a popular tree within Australian gardens , interestingly is not a native

Track 5: "Sister Jeans"
Lyric:'Down along Sydney Road'
Explained: Sydney Road is a major road in Melbourne , unsurprisingly it travels north towards Sydney some 878kms / 545 miles away

Track 6:"Bellarine"
Lyric: ' My Bellarine from here I shoot my scene'
Explained: The Bellarine Peninsular is peninsular SW of Melbourne

Track 7: " Cappuccino City"
Lyric: ' Not only one with a short memory , FM stereo , Belgians in the Congo , short memory'
Explained: a rather superb tip of the hat to Australian icons Midnight Oil and in particular their song "Short Memory" which appears on their classic 1982 album ' 10 , 9 , 8 , 7 , 6 , 5 ,4 , 3, 2, 1 ' . To quote the original track "Belgians in the Congo short memory"

Hope Downs is easily one of 2018's best Australian albums

Yeah the songs are all pretty good and they're clearly talented, I could see why this album could be seen as a pleasent surprise for fans of it's style but not getting the messianic hype at all. While never a weak moment or song there also wasn't anything that felt really new or vital. Solid but perhaps exceedingly high expectations have personally put a damper on this one, maybe something will spark with repeat listens, donno.

It's jangly and uptempo indie-pop. It's not original but it is ok.

Soon to become the jangle pop album of our generation. RBCF's clean, summery debut is as warm as its album artwork implies, with youthful spirit and a gorgeously jangly pop rock feel.

Compared to the vast majority of indie albums of recent times, this one stands out beautiful with the depth of its production and its fantastic guitar riffs, which I could write about extensively for each individual track.

A pre-packaged summer soundtrack, who's detail will ensure this is remembered as one of 2018s best releases by far.
