#throwback to Kitchen’s Floor, the band that I think of every time I hear the word ‘dank’. The Brisbane slacker rock band’s debut LP, Loneliness is a Dirty Mattress, was released in late 2009. For me, it was a time when I blindly moved into the dankest Sydney sharehouse infested with cockroaches. I had moved by myself to a new city to chase what would later be a dead end job. With the poor dude in the room next to me covered in bed bugs, my loneliness too literally was a dirty mattress. Uncomfortable yet exciting, draining yet energising. Kitchen’s Floor, led by Matt Kennedy, became the soundtrack to the burden and catharsis of my unfamiliar place. Listening to the album today I can still taste the $2 cleanskin wines from the bottle shop across the street.
