Now and again a song tugs the heart-strings, and for me it’s more likely to be because of an under-stated beauty rather than a claw-hammer approach.

A case in point is Highway Found, the title track of Jo Bartlett’s latest EP. And it’s not the first time this Sandhurst-based songstress has managed that.

I think I’m going to mainly play instrumentals (Yellow Moon Band etc) with a couple of songs thrown in for good measure.

Here’s a film Richard made of the last gig I played with the band a couple of weeks ago. Music is by Franz and his band, don’t think they have a name yet.

Full Ugly – Drove Down

I like these guys. From Australia. Signed to Fire over here. They remind me of slacker indie like Camper Van Beethoven from the ’80s.
