The Aussie brother and sister have produced a deft second album which is easy on the ear once you get used to their tendency to alternate the lead vocals on each track. Julia's is the most immediately appealing voice - waif like Martha Wainright sort of describes it. Her brother puts me in mind of a laid back Josh Rouse. Nicely produced - mixing electric and acoustic guitars and strings to create a indie folkrock sound but arrangements are varied whilst staying coherent. Try the lead track '.. and the boys' to give a good impression of the whole

All in all an album that grows on you from an impressive starting point.

If you like this check out the Weepies for similar fare.

Read a favourable review in The Sunday Times, and took a punt - it's an amazingly good album. Beautiful fragile vocals. A bit like Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan, each alternating in taking over vocal duties.

Angus & Julia Stone - Down The Way (Flock)
The second album from Australian brother and sister, Angus and Julia Stone (Down The Way is the follow-up release to 2007's much lauded A Book Like This) has an intriguing history. Recorded in New York and London, but also an old water tank in Coolangatta and a converted sawmill in Cornwall, it's no surprise that the siblings take on much of the production role, and travel appears to be a central theme of the album. That and the loneliness it can bring.

It's a serious collection of songs with adult subject matter and a certain downbeat, weathered atmosphere pervades much of the material. Fortunately they're talented songwriters with voices that mesh and entwine with enchanting ease, and while Down The Way may not be the easiest of listening experiences, it's always rewarding. Indeed, it gets better with every spin. 9/10.

Stumbled across Angus and Julia Stone on Spotify. I can heartily recommend this double album. Not only is it great value for money, but the music is fantastic; laid back with some great rhythms, their voices are wonderful contrasts.

Grows with every listen. Alternated male and quirky female vocals. Beautiful harmonies throughout.
Hauntingly gorgeous songs - 'For You'and 'I'm Not Yours'. An epic - 'Draw Your Swords'that begins hypnotically, builds and builds with brilliant vocals (shades of Jim Morrison and Jeff Buckley towards the end), quite magnificent. The incredibly catchy 'Big Jet Plane', and some Neil Young style guitar in 'Yellow Brick Road'. Each song is melodic and well-constructed, and at times achingly emotional.

This is my first purchase of Angus & Julia Stone's music, & it will definitely not be my last. This album has not left my CD player for a month.
Julia delivers a soft yet haunting vocal, whilst Angus is more understated (like a whisper on the wind), I still find his voice addictive.

Musically this album is great, it has a beautiful mix of guitars, strings, piano etc.

My favourite songs are Yellow Brick Road (this just has me dreaming of California),
Draw Your Swords (Angus's vocal is fantastic), For You & I'm Not Your's (Julia's vocals are beautiful).

I love this whole album, it can't help but have you dreaming of sunny days, good times & free spirits.

I can't wait to hear more & catch a live show.

Like many of the reviewers here, I too got hooked instantly on this album. It's the dreamy, warm atmosphere of the album that draws you in first. Then as you listen to it more and more, you discover the understated power of the vocals (never showing off, yet always impressive), the beautiful harmonies and the subtle but ingenious use of instruments giving each song its own little hook. It's this rich layered texture that makes this album so much better than your average boy/girl/guitar folk-pop music that we heard a bit too much of in recent years.
