ETERNAL NIGHTCAP (1997)
The Whitlams' classic and most beloved album, Eternal Nightcap, is 25 this month and has been remastered under the loving eye of frontman Tim Freedman himself. The album single-handedly brought the piano back onto the youth airwaves in 1997 and captured the hearts of a generation by describing a whole decade of its life - the mad, emotional, love-hungry contagion of the late teens and 20s. From love (‘Melbourne’) to mad parties (‘You Sound Like Louis Burdett’) to tragic friendships (‘The Charlie’ trilogy), the album kicked off with the offbeat #1 ‘No Aphrodisiac’ and never looked back.
MATTER OF TIME (2022)
One of Australia's premier voices and gifted young songwriters - Meg Mac - returns with her finest record to date, Matter Of Time.
No hyperbole, Mac is already a star, but this third album sees her make good on that while furthering her unique trajectory, building upon her award-winning foundations and sending them to new places of clarity and ambition. Poised to capture hearts and minds, the album finds Mac avid and ambitious following a "a bit of a meltdown" and a game-changing personal switch-up that saw her scrap an entire album at the 11th hour and start again from scratch.
