RECORD OF THE MONTH
PETROL BLOOM / LIMBO CHERRY
We're elated to bring Australian music lovers another exclusive, our second for 2022 and we would have otherwise missed out on. It is a very limited pressing of London singer-songwriter Laurel's two recent EP releases - Petrol Bloom and Limbo Cherry - one on each side of a clear vinyl record for the first time ever.
Laurel executed this plan - releasing material which adds up to a full length record in two parts - rather than as a traditional album as a commitment to do things her way, rather than following the crowd.
Shifting from the bedroom produced, indie rock sounds of debut album Dogviolet, Laurel worked alongside producer Chrome Sparks for these EPs, her first time with a producer. The Line Of Best Fit touted that she "spills retro-pop melodies and ‘80s-inspired synths into her most exciting project to date."
PAUL KELLY'S CHRISTMAS TRAIN
The sacred and the secular, the ancient and modern, it's all carefully woven into this collection destined to become a part of Australian Christmases for many years to come.
As he gathered the material for his first Christmas album, Aussie icon Paul Kelly knew he wanted to make a record that drew out all the emotions and layers of the Christmas story, and to do it in a way that reflected our experience in the southern hemisphere, far removed from the holly and snow imagery of so many Christmas songs.The result is an extraordinary 22-song double album which travels across the centuries, from a Latin hymn to well-known carols, from a traditional Irish folk ballad to songs with an unmistakable local flavour, and a sparkling new version of one of the greatest Australian Christmas songs of them all, Kelly’s own 'How to Make Gravy'.
