Solo album from one-third of The Waifs; a newie from my favourite Norwegian forest spirit; electrifying desert blues.
Kasey Chambers @ Palais Theatre
Another concert that got delayed and delayed and delayed yet again finally happened! Great show with something old, something newer, and a country cover of Eminem I never knew I wanted.
New Music 07/2021 – Fanny Lumsden, Carpenters, Mozart
It’s been a while since I got some new music, but now I’ve discovered a sublime album from an Australian country singer-songwriter; one of the greatest female pop vocalists of all time; and a Greatest Hits collection from some Austrian guy.
Wild Rose – Film Review
This uplifting movie about an aspiring country singer has all the requisite tropes – scrappy origins, raw talent, inner demons and hard-won redemption – but manages to soar thanks to some different story beats and an electrifying performance from Jessie Buckley.
New Music 04/2019 – Rosalía, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kacey Musgraves
Spanish flamenco meets R&B; cinematic French pop; sunlit American country.
Gillian Welch @ Palais Theatre
I had such great time at this concert. Beautiful venue and incredibly enthusiastic audience; I’m used to the Melbourne crowd being reserved, but from the moment Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, her musical partner (and amazing guitarist), walked onstage they got nothing but cheers and rapturous applause throughout the show.
