Country Town Collective - Darling     Folk, Acoustic, Pop 25/09/2009
Delicate and beautifully crafted folk from a band of ten instrument swapping, cross city collaborators. Country Town Collective put the 'collective' back into collective.
Everyone loves this strange song. The instrumental parts were recorded live to tape with the vocal track the only part overdubbed. It sounds slightly like a Bjork song in its execution but is designed more like a meditation or a drone where the listener gets pulled in for the trip.

Ton of Feathers weighs the same as a ton of fun!

Fall Electric - Faithless Friend     Rock, Acoustic 25/09/2009
Fall Electric’s songs focus on riddled philosophic inquiries, ironies within romance, the nature of admitting human weakness and other enjoyably unsolvable topics.
‘Faithless Friend’ sees Fall Electric in full rock mode. Edgy, overdriven acoustic guitar is lent friction and gravity coupled with cello stabs and bows, woven around urgent, tumbling drums. The song canters and bucks frenetically before fading away in a wry homage to the Nirvana classic ‘Something In The Way’.

Other tracks by Fall Electric:  Warm Toes  -  There In The Morning
Fallingwater Trio - Bells     Jazz 25/09/2009
The drum-less Fallingwater Trio create lush romanticism with uncanny melodic interplay and seductive soundscapes. This is music of profound beauty, with stark intimate minimalism.
"The style is ambient, but not of the meaningless. Like its namesake's architecture, the music is thoughtfully structured and designed to produce a harmonious, peaceful effect. Bywater's tenor sax flows along with Elliott Folvig's guitar and Dale Lindrea's electric bass as naturally as quiet waters over river stones." John McBeath

Other tracks by Fallingwater Trio:  After Nalma  -  Faith

Keller Murphy Browne - The Days Of Wine And Roses     Jazz, Instrumental 25/09/2009
Each piece on 'Carried By The Sun' unfolds like a three-way conversation, the focus shifting subtly from player to player without the need for bombast or empty technical displays.
The ballad Days of Wine and Roses is played slightly faster than usual after a rippling, rhythmless piano opening. These experienced players stress that no one is leader: it's a genuinely collaborative exercise. That is demonstrated in the compositions, with contributions from each member. Review from The Weekend Australian

Miriam Lieberman - Monsoon Rain     World, Acoustic, African, Folk 25/09/2009

Miriam wrote this song while living the shanty town artist quarter of Guinea West Africa during the first rains of the wet season. Living in a small house with a tin roof during the hot months the rains where so joyfully recieved.
