Discovery: Dr Sure’s Unusual Practice

Australia’s post-punkers are subversive as their name suggests and we love it.

By Graeme Smith

Check your melodic rock at the door, Dr Sure’s Unusual Practice’s new track It’s Alive is a lesson in arrhythmic, calamitous, raw, beautiful post-punk. That’s not to say this isn’t well-constructed music, every jarring off-beat seems meticulously planned to get you listening in just the right way.

The eponymous Dr Sure, aka Dougal Shaw has been popping up in bands in his native Melbourne for six years now. This new project does not disappoint. Check out the short and sweet It’s Alive below.
