Hussy Hicks & Raphael White – On The Boundaries

"Hussy Hicks & Raphael White – On The Boundaries"
With their new single Mutiny recently Premiered with repeat plays on Triple J Roots N All the Hussy Hicks are well pleased with their collaborative efforts on the new album. Teaming up with long time friend London based Producer Raphael White the girls have created a stunning new album that will surprise some but still maintains their folk and blues roots.They are currently on tour in the USA and head home next month to drop the record and head out for their Australian dates.(listed below)
For this album they joined forces with long time friend and musical collaborator Raphael White. Their trust in him as a producer allowed them to expand on their live sound and conduct some sonic experiments in his London studio. “Stylistically I guess the biggest difference between this and our last albums would be the layering; more vocals, more guitars, more time spent on production” says Julz. ““We tried not to be beholden to our live sound, to keep the tracks open to be able to grow in any direction. The way we found was best for that was to start each song by Leesa laying down a couple of shaker tracks (as we do live) so that we all had a solid foundation groove that we were all comfortable to build upon. We then sang and played all the different ideas we had for each song and left Raph with a bit of a sonic smorgasboard to play with.
 It’s not a folk album, its not a blues album, its not an alt-country album but it still has bits of all our influences
wrapped up in there and we’re super happy with the result.”
The Hussy Hicks are also pleased to announce their upcoming Tour

Julie-Anne Marshall – New Single The Dawn

"Julie-Anne Marshall – New Single The Dawn"

Julie-Anne Marshall is an independent singer-songwriter from Adelaide who is influenced by the soft rock style of the 70’s, her songs are lightly touched by a myriad of genres ranging from rock, folk, country, jazz to blues and ballads.  ‘The Dawn’ single is the interlude between her debut album ‘Bluebird’ released 2016 and her follow-up album due early 2018. The Dawn talks to the heart of anyone who has had to re-discover their inner strength. It’s emotive and follows the ilk of Julie-Anne, her songs are lyric driven, her vocals are earthy yet ethereal.

Luke Escombe – Skeleton Blues

"Luke Escombe – Skeleton Blues"

Skeleton Blues lays bare the key influences in Luke Escombe’s music. It includes covers of songs by Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan, as well as two electrifying renditions of the old spirituals ‘O Death’ and ‘John the Revelator,’ Although presenting a more serious side to his song writing, there is still a healthy dose of Luke’s sly humour in the first single ‘Punctuation Blues,’ a track which combines a Lightning Hopkins-inspired guitar groove with such lines as ‘punctuation is like making love/ you gotta know when to put it in,’ Meanwhile, previously released songs such as ’21st Century Blues,’ ‘Confidence,’ and ‘Axe in the House’ take on a deeper meaning when stripped of their band backings. As the title suggests, these are songs which have been cut down to their very bones.

 

Track List:

  1. Punctuation Blues (3:25)
  2. Confidence (3:49)
  3. John the Revelator (4:20)
  4. O Death (5:20)
  5. Axe in the House (5:25)
  6. 21st Century Blues (4:27)
  7. Man in the Long Black Coat (4:38)
  8. The Lipsi (3:56)
  9. The Wind Cries Mary (4:01)
  10. Get in the Cool Room (3:48)
  11. William Blake (4:45)
