Infusion's 'Six Feet Above Yesterday' In Rolling Stone's Best 50 Albums
Monday, January 17, 2005
"The second album from the ambitious Wollongong electronica trio cements their place as the international flag bearers' of Australian dance music. From playing to 30,000 people in Argentina to packing out nightclubs across the world, few artists took local electronica into as many corners of the world as Infusion this year. At its best, Six Feet Above Yesterday is a rocking and inspired marriage of dark bleeps and foot-stomping dance that stands as a fine testament to the most successful local underground dance act of 2004."
Infusion are one of only 10 Australian or New Zealand artists to be named in the list of 50, and alongside the Scissor Sisters, only one of two electronic albums. Other albums named belong to bands such as Franz Ferdinand, Eminem, Interpol, Brian Wilson, The Streets and Gwen Stefani.
Sydney's 3DWorld street press in the end-of-year round up also named 'Six Feet Above Yesterday' as their Album of The Year, also crowning Infusion 'Best Local Live Act Of The Year' and 'Producers of The Year' (tied with Poxymusic).
Infusion are about to embark on the Big Day Out national tour and will again head overseas early this year for the European releases of the album.
'Six Feet Above Yesterday' is available now on Sony BMG. Tags
