Recorded in the Dandenong Ranges with Ben Edgar (Passenger, Angus and Julia Stone) Adelina uses driving rhythms and lapsteel guitars to paint a vast landscape inspired by 1970s California rock and Americana.

The Queensland Tiger - The Captain of the Push (Henry Lawson)     Folk, Acoustic, Country, Alternative Country 20/06/2019
The Queensland Tiger covers traditional Australian ballads mainly from the nineteenth century: e.g. Henry Lawson, Banjo Paterson, Breaker Morant, Charles Thatcher, etc… true to the original works.
Complete poem by Henry Lawson (1867 - 1922) This was apparently passed by the censor, and published in The Bulletin in 1892. Infamous gangs, known as pushes, still roamed “The Rocks” area of Sydney In the 1880s and 1890s, so when Lawson published this poem, it was topical piece, not an historical one.

David M. Western - Gallery     Folk, Rock, Alternative Country 14/06/2019
David Western’s bashful and winsome sensibility has fooled many. An explorer of personal space, soaring downcast rock and dimly lit folk tunes, he’s an old soul that writes with purpose.
Gallery is an observation of the various ways people portray themselves and how we feel when we’re watching people do things that aren’t exactly genuine. You need to put yourself on the outside, watching the paintings as you pass by, instead of being the image that you have on the wall that shows a negative side of yourself.

East Coast Dream is an anthem for adventurous spirits, those who want to rid themselves of their cubicle prison and hit the open road. It’s a soundtrack to windows down and boards in the back, sunsets over seas, picnic blankets on headlands, condensation on beer bottles, freedom, being out of reception, waking up to the sunrise, and falling in love.
