"Ninetynine celebrate their 10th anniversary with the release of their 6th full length album, 'Worlds of Space, Worlds of Robots, Worlds of Population' sees Ninetynine go back to doing what they know best - creating some of the best indie-rock to come out of Australia. The band sound like they're having a lot of fun on this release, and having spent the better part of 6 months in the studio, they have arguably completed their most consistent work to date. All their signature sounds are here - manic drumming, all the tuned percussion under the sun, casios galore, crunchy guitars and incessantly catchy vocals."
"Ninetynine are the true indie stalwarts of the melbourne music scene. Forming in 1996, as a solo project for laura macfarlane (who at the time had just left her position as drummer for sleater kinney). Additional members were quickly added, and the band started a relentless recording and touring schedule that has held them in high critical regard ever since. Recent times have seen the band drop their lo-fi patchwork approach to making albums and concentrate on a more unified studio effort to create a truer recorded example of their hi-energy live shows. This is their 6th album, and will see them embark shortly on their 8th international tour. The title comes from a 1930's economic term basically inferring first, second and third worlds."
