Australia isn't quite the musical hotbed that the UK seems to be, and whilst it might seem somewhat stereotypical, it would make sense for one to assume that the Australian music that does reach us would be fuzzed-up slacker rock or laid-back surf-pop. As it happens, however, 'Iceberg Nerves', the debut album from Alice Spring's Lowlakes, is quite the opposite.
