some lovely reviewsNov 19 2016
A gorgeous review of Goodwood appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald today. It describes it as a “complete revelation”, which is really something, and notes its “wry affection for a peculiarly Australian dagginess”. Haha, yes. If you’re interested, you can read a bunch more Goodwood reviews here.
Some nice words were said about ‘What Do You Say?’ (feat. Mark Kozelek), too. Stereogum called it “shadowy…tender…understated…beautiful”. And Double J described it as “beautiful, uplifting and raw as hell”. That’s very nice. You can buy the song now on iTunes, or stream or your preferred service. More music news coming soon.

Farewell and rest in peace to Fergus Miller (aka Bored Nothing). He was one of my favourite musicians, and part of my Spunk Records family. My thoughts go out to his loved ones.
