The Australian roots-rock quintet Suicide Swans released the LP Augusta on the 1st.
A ten track album steeped deeply in country influences though burred with a whisky barrel soaking allowing Suicide Swans to create music which is retrospective of the earliest derivations of US rock ‘n roll.
The unhurried paced and even tempered compositions affords the combinations of strings, keys, percussion and vocal a natural earthiness and make the listener wish they lived near to Brisbane where it would be easier to get out to see them play live, though for those of us who don’t Augusta is an album most certainly to add to the playlists and for those who are in the Northern Hemisphere it will warm up the soon to be here autumn evenings.
The third track is Wall.
