When public support systems fall short, who ends up carrying the burden? The question courses through All Her Plans, the third album from local rock trio Cable Ties - this week's PBS Feature Album.

The band’s most sonically confident work yet, All Her Plans builds on Cable Ties trademarks: taut garage rhythms, wiry guitar lines, incandescent vocals. Bassist Nick Brown’s and drummer Shauna Boyle’s kraut-inflected grooves pulse behind the post-punk jag of Jenny McKechnie’s guitar.

Thrumming with the same intensity as the band’s previous releases, the record offers more concentrated, personal lyrics from lead vocalist McKechnie as she traces themes of addiction, mental health,  and Australia’s flagging healthcare system.

Tune in all this week to hear tracks from All Her Plans, and PBS Members have the chance to win a copy of the album on vinyl via emailing giveaways@pbsfm.org.au before midnight Sunday July 2. Not a PBS Member? Join now!
