REVERB, JUNE 2011
This debut album from central coast folk duo Nick and Liesl is a classy follow-up to their 2008 EP Wyong River. On first listen, it’s a tough choice as to which is the standout: the gob-smackingly powerful and melodic vocals – think Angus Stone/Katie Noonan – or the first-class sound production, topped off with thoughtful lyrics, fine musicianship and the album’s wonderfully eclectic folk/pop/soul style. Like Wyong River, which earned an ABC Award for sound production, Feather was crafted in the pair’s backyard studio and features a slew of über-talented collaborators, including Paul Kelly/Rockwiz drummer Pete Luscombe, Kasey Chamber’s bass player, Jeff McCormack and country guitar maestroGlen Hannah. Crown amongst the jewels? The slinky ‘Witch’s Brew’ – a simply beautiful song on this simply beautiful album.
