Melbourne exploratory synth-pop adventurers Pikelet announce launch dates for third album Calluses, due for release on Chapter Music on 16 August 2013. The follow-up to 2010’s Australian Music Prize-shortlisted Stem. Calluses is a darker, denser beast than its predecessors, recorded, mixed and mastered with John Lee (Lost Animal, Mountains In the Sky). From the post-apocalyptic eeriness of Pressure Cooker, to the 60s Euro space-jazz of Forward Motion, to the frenetic introspection of first single Combo, the album is bold, ambitious and layered, a record that rewards repeated listens with subtle details and hypnotic depths.
