1/2/3/4 — #174 — Gone By Noon

Moat is a collaboration between Marty Willson-Piper (The Church, Noctorum) and Swedish composer/multi-instrumentalist Niko Röhlcke (Weeping Willows). The project captures the fusion of sparse Scandinavian beauty and English folk sensibilities, filmic and evocative. “Gone By Noon” is the first track from the forthcoming long-player entitled “Poison Stream” due in early 2021.

1/2/3/4 — #173 — The Space Between

One half of Sydney’s Jep & Dep, Jessica has released her triumphant solo debut, a shimmering beautiful album that the Rolling Stone dubbed a “Masterclass of Ethereal Brilliance”. Rightly so, this is a gorgeous listen from start to finish, produced by partner Darren Cross. One of the highlight’s of 2020 and will be high in my end of year list. Equally beguiling is Brona McVittie’s Man in the Mountain, sublime folk from a unique artist who has a pristine voice. As well, stunning new singles from luscious baroque pop from The Apartments and Jello 64 and The Maes and Monique Clare.

Quiet Space — #150 — Loops

Melbourne composers Claire Deak and Tony Dupé team up for a brilliant debut release on Lost Tribe Sounds, The Old Capital. The duo describes themselves as a home orchestra well-suited for late night rambling, a stunning release. As well, the Covid-19 collaboration between Danny Widdicombe and Ant Aggs, Brisbane composer 801999x with some beautiful immersive minimalism and we bookend the show with some hypnotic loops from Gareth Hardwick.

1/2/3/4 — #172 — Show Us Your Stuff

Grant-Lee Phillips’ latest album, Lightning, Show Us Your Stuff, is a turbulent and highly musical rumination that finds the veteran singer-songwriter addressing the strange fragility of life. His tenth solo release bears the markings of his prolific output, a melodic prowess and an ear for lyric in everyday conversation. Highly Recommended!
