Angus and Julia Stone- A Book Like This

February 17, 2008

Heard one of their new tracks on Pearl’s program last week but has been a busy week so only posting now.  

First heard this Aussie brother and sister duo down in Electric Picnic and I was just captivated by Julia’s voice.  Angus does a fair bit of singing as well and the new album is very well done.   Not released officially in Europe until March 31’st but you can get the import with an extra dvd of their videos from HMV.  They will be supporting Newton Faulkner on the 10th of March and will be back on their own in May at some stage- emailed them and the date is to be confirmed.  Can’t make the support gig but to be honest I think I would prefer a smaller one where they headline since they would be able to play more.

You can check out a live performance on Australian Show Monday Night Live here and check out their official site.
