1/2/3/4 — #152 — Christine Jane, Grant Lee-Phillips, Dehd

Christine Jane’s eclectic tastes and world wide travels lead her to find her sound: ‘cinematic blues’. Her songs are deeply personal and reflect on loss, love, listlessness and the shadows of despair. Her latest single, written on a tiny guitar (called a guitalelele) and using eclipse mints and hands scratching demin jeans for percussion, sees Christine Jane reinventing herself in the strange space betwixt trysts. As well, excellent new releases from Grant Lee-Phillips and Dehd.

A Lilac Decline is the anagrammatic musical pseudonym of visual artist Cecilia Danell. Originally from Sweden but resident in Ireland for over a decade, Danell is a member of fellow Rusted Rail acts Cubs and Loner Deluxe. Her latest single, Sunset Song, is a lush and dreamy listen awash with spacey synth lines. As well, two great Australian songwriters, Nick Batterham and Josh Meadows combine their powers as The Bell Streets, driving uptempo pop from Sydney trio Key Out and the return of Pure X.

1/2/3/4 — #148 — Justine Wahlin in Session

Justine Wahlin is difficult to categorise. She sits somewhere between alt folk/country and Roots but regularly seems to slip through the cracks to wander on her own sonic adventures, much like an octopus will sneak out to sample tasty morsels from the neighbouring tank but be back before dawn. She joins us in session – plus excellent tracks from Alison Forbes, Omaloma and Natalie Greffel.

Quiet Space — #133 — Less One Knows

Benjamin Finger has been composing music with a healthy disregard for genres since 2007. His palette moves between psych-collages, droned out-jams, piano miniatures, classical minimalism, off-kilter pop, and an occasional stab at garbled dance music. A textural and emotionally resonant cocktail in a blurred, shimmering, and psychedelic world. His latest release is more guitar dominant, it’s our feature release on this edition of the Quiet Space.

Anastasia Minster creates piano-driven chamber pop which fuses elements of classical, folk and jazz. She returns with her second album Father, a gorgeous tapestry of sound, lyrically inspired by the works of Carl Jung, Hermann Hesse and Andrei Tarkovsky. Highly Recommended. As well, stunning new works from Hannah Cameron, Finn Bennet (Tulalah) and we open with a song inspired by self-isolation from Loner Deluxe.

Quiet Space — #126 — Farewell Islands

Slow Reels combines Ian Hawgood’s love of reel-to-reel tape machines and vintage synthesizers with James Murray’s melodicism and richly textured digital sound design. Their Morr Music debut, ‘Farewell Islands’, is an arresting, fluorescing album that blends full-frequency dronescaping with a slow-burning ambient minimalism.
