My Own Pet Radio – No Great Mystery 3½★

It’s no great mystery to me. This is a charming exploration of youth, perception, image and identity … all floating on a bed of sixties-inspired electronica.

Brisbane has pumped out some great bands recently, from the pure energy of Hey Geronimo to the slightly more experimental Ball Park Music. Sam Cromack, apart from being the heart of soul of BPM, loves dropping in on his mates in Hey Geronimo (the band, not the song), and occasionally dips his solo oar in the water via My Own Pet Radio.

His earlier My Own Pet Radio work was spread across the stars – a dash on Triple J Unearthed – a tinkle on SoundCloud – but with No Great Mystery it appears Sam is taking the side project seriously. Good for him. Great track and something for him to think about while touring Europe (does he sleep?).
