1/2/3/4 — #68 — One Punch with Davey Craddock

Davey Craddock has delivered a fantastic follow up to his 2016 release, City West – it’s an urgent, anxious and dark collection of tunes lyrically and sonically, with a dash of noise and chaos in the mix. That doesn’t mean the songs are messy, Davey is class songwriter with a stellar attention to detail that will drag you in. He joins me via Skype from Perth ahead of his East Coast tour and performances at Dashville Skyline and Out on The Weekend. As well from the West, Carla Geneve and Bri Clark who have incredibly bright futures, Angie McMahon in session and the return of Sydney’s Family Fold.

An extra tasty 1/2/3/4 with some essential new releases. Haley Heynderickx’s debut is already one of my favourites for 2018, with some deft guitar work and imaginative lyrics. How can you not gravitate to an artist who dreamed she was transformed into a feamle Jimi Hendrix at age eleven? Plus folkie Serafina Steer’s cracking post punk trio Bas Jan, metaphysical rolling folk from Red River Dialect and the beguiling sounds of Jerry David Deciccia.
