This week's feature album is the long awaited debut LP from Melbourne synth-punk duo VACUUM.

Comprised of Jenny Branagan (NUN) and Andrea Blake (ASPS/Chrome Dome), VACUUM have been performing together live since 2013. However, this self-titled debut album marks their first foray into recording.

Listening to VACUUM, a distinct feeling arises: Isn’t this fun? For all its psychic terror and bludgeoning, gut-punch sub-bass this is a record with refreshing, bristling wit. Its elliptical industrial songs apply a piquant buzz to contemporary experimental electronic music. This record is dead-serious, of course, but like the best creators of dystopian visions, VACUUM know that you need a touch of light to contrast with all that shade. 

VACUUM's self-titled LP is out now via Heavy Machinery Records and IT Records.

Tune in to PBS all this week to hear tracks from the album, and PBS Members have the chance to win a copy of the record via Tuesday’s e-newsletter. Not a member? Join now!
