one of my absolute loveliest, most prefered and favorite band of all time, that there ever was, in the history of the universe times a zillion is Angus & Julia Stone. So, when i heard Angus was embarking on an edgier solo side project and leaving his sister behind, i was devastated. However, i was finally persuaded by my brother to keep my mind open to new things no matter how upsetting the change may have been. So, I did. And the result… LOVE.
Lady of the Sunshine; Angus Stone & his band are amazing. Though they do not posses the same whimsical sound the original sibling duo did, alt. indie rock feel works wonders. A mix of easily listening tunes as well as a couple rocky ones, Smoking Gun, the debut album for Lady of Sunshine is 12 hit songs. Angus’ voice is as always stunning, and adds an element of folk to their rock/indie sound.
Personal favorites include Silver Revolver, Home Sweet Home and Daisychain.
