9 Motel Satellite – John Kennedy (from the album Second Best)

File Under – Alt Country

Released in 2001, John Kennedy’s Inner West album brought together the early vinyl singles and album selections from his bands JFK and the Cuban Crisis, Love Gone Wrong and the Honeymooners. That was his first ‘Best Of’ collection. So, that makes this Kennedy’s Second Best Of.

Since the heady days of the 1980’s, topping the Australian independent music charts, Kennedy has released a number of albums on various labels in Europe and Australia. Whether it was lack of promotion or distribution, or his audience simply moving on that was the cause, those albums went largely unnoticed. Even those who have followed his music probably wouldn’t have known they existed.

Now, with this Second Best compilation release, the key tracks from those albums are collected to show that the beat did indeed go on. It serves the purpose of giving these songs a new lease of life and hopefully points people back to those lost albums.

12 Never Far From Home(Unplugged) – Halfway Homebuoy (from the album Intermittent)

File Under – Acoustic/Singer/songwriter

Having taken a hiatus from the recording studio while maintaining their live profile the boys from Halfway Homebuoy finally gathered together again in the studio. They had found a bunch of tunes from their catalogue that were resonating strongly with their live audience.

Bringing in violin, acoustic guitar, percussion and keyboards to augment the line-up the boys created a softer, acoustic, spacious soundscape to re imagine these songs and thus Intermittent was born. The band toiled away at Damien Gerard’s, mostly tracking live, and under the masterful ears of Russell Pilling the tunes were re assembled, mixed and finally mastered by USA engineer Andrew Beck. The high quality sonics and refreshing new take on the tunes speak for themselves.

Big Merino’s music has a handmade quality to it, they try to blur the lines between Rock, Country, Blues, Roots, Soul, Funk, Grunge occasionally and make their way into lesser known genres.
