A Gloriously Haunting Noise
on 26 June 2007
This is a 2EP/mini-album/2 Mini-CD set... featuring 12 wonderful songs from this Australian brother and sister.
Their unconventional upbringing, family life and attitudes have obviously made marks on the music they play, but it is none the worse for that.
"Private Lawns" uses lyrics from the musical Calamity Jane to great effect, and yes it deserves to be the sound of the summer... but something far more banal will probably overshadow it.
I can't speak highly enough of this, and the live show is quiet and nothing flashy, but the effect of the joy that is evident on the stage is to raise the music from wonderful to a genuinely sublime experience.
They are in the UK for about 3 months. I urge you to go and see them while you can.
