This week's feature album is Comfort To Me, the sophomore release from Amyl & The Sniffers

Mixed by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, IDLES, Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and mastered by Bernie Grundman (Prince, Michael Jackson, Dr. Dre, OutKast), Comfort To Me includes previously released singles 'Guided By Angels' and 'Security', which received instant acclaim from press across the globe as well as social media support from high-profile fans Juliette Lewis and Diplo. 
The weight of the past two years is palpable on Comfort To Me, as vocalist and front person Amy Taylor explains: 

“After the Bushfire season, and when the pandemic hit, our options were the same as everyone: go find a day job and work in intense conditions or sit at home and drown in introspection. I fell into the latter category. I had all this energy inside of me and nowhere to put it, because I couldn’t perform, and it had a hectic effect on my brain. Having to deal with a lot of authority during 2020 and realizing my lack of power made me feel both more self destructive and more self disciplined, more nihilistic and more depressed and more resentful, which ultimately fueled me with a kind of relentless motivation. I became a temporary monster. I partied more, but I also exercised heaps, read books and ate veggies. I was like an egg going into boiling water when this started, gooey and weak but with a hard surface. I came out even harder. I’m still soft on the inside, but in a different way. My brain evolved and warped and my way of thinking about the world completely changed.” 

On Tuesday October 5, Amyl & The Sniffers will premiere a filmed performance of Comfort to Me, played in full, in one take, on a slab of concrete in a suburban wasteland somewhere in Melbourne. Tickets are available on the band’s webstore at
