ALBUM REVIEW: Jamie Hutchings – Bedsit

It’s been seven years since the last solo album from Jamie Hutchings. In the interim he’s busied himself with 2 noisy rock records with Infinity Broke and the wonderful Down The Unmarked Road, the result of his collaboration with Peter Fenton of Crow. Now he returns to the solitude of the self with the intimate, graceful and poetic Bedsit. This is a sparser and more … Continue reading ALBUM REVIEW: Jamie Hutchings – Bedsit

ALBUM REVIEW: The Tall Grass – Down The Unmarked Road

Jamie Hutchings (Bluebottle Kiss, Infinity Broke) and Peter Fenton (Crow) have come together as The Tall Grass, which began as a live acoustic duo project before being expanded upon and sonically coloured in the studio with a wide-ranging band sound. It’s still on the laid-back vibe though – wistful, poetic, and melancholic. The sound of their other bands is still evident, particularly Hutchings with his more … Continue reading ALBUM REVIEW: The Tall Grass – Down The Unmarked Road

ALBUM REVIEW: Infinity Broke – Before Before

Though mostly born from the same sessions as last year’s River Mirrors album, these nine songs operate on a different plane. More concise and song-based, yet with a broad range of moods and levels of intensity, the quartet conjure up caustic distorted storms of guitar over measured rhythms. The spirit and intensity of Bluebottle Kiss is strongly present on both Before Before and its predecessor … Continue reading ALBUM REVIEW: Infinity Broke – Before Before

Tonight they had a new bass player on board who slotted in nicely with their indie rock wall of sound. Minor amp/pedal issues threatened to disrupt the set but thankfully they abated and the songs, … Continue reading LIVE REVIEW: Infinity Broke @ Goodgod Small Club, Sydney (12/12/14)
