This week's feature album comes from Melbourne four-piece Surprise Chef with their sophomore release Daylight Savings.

The synth-laden funk odyssey follows on from the success of the band's 2019 debut album All News Is Good News, which earned them world-wide recognition.

Daylight Savings picks up where the last record left off, edging its way towards 1970s-style jazzfunk complete with the epic drama, ebbs and flows of a vintage David Axelrod. Listeners may also recognise the influence of other Melbourne instrumental outfits Karate Boogaloo and The Putbacks.

Recorded in the band's home studio in their Coburg sharehouse, Daylight Savings rises from winter, opening ears and eyes to the band's enormous sound. Written as a collaborative effort but with a stronger focus on the core Surprise Chef rhythm section, comprised of Andrew Congues (drums) and Carl Lindeberg (bass), this album is a record filled with all the optimism and hope that comes with the impending warmer months and longer days synonymous with daylight savings. The four-piece is rounded out by guitarist Lachlan Stuckey and Jethro Curtin on keyboard and vibraphone. The band also called in support from fellow Melbourne musicians Joe Orton (slide guitar, percussion) and Lucky Pereira (percussion) to join them on their recording journey.
