Lily & King’s new CD:
Lily and King, are celebrating the release of their second album: ‘Bless This Life’, produced by ARIA award winning guitarist Matt Walker.
Lily Sutton delivers a luring, sensual haze of smoky-opiate vocals and rapturously disrespectful brass (playing trombone, trumpet and tuba throughout), while Tony J. King slams a rhythmic driving junkyard of guitars and percussion.
The twelve track album, which has a distinctly Australian flavour (“Bondi Junction Baby” and “Brett Whiteley’s Woman”), takes listeners to tangled spaces – from the all-in bluegrass orgy of the title track to mesmerising and delicate seaside waltzes, passionate wailing klezmer (with violinist Alex Burkoy-Tinpan Orange), and crunchy down-home blues.
Walker’s inimitably understated and honest production style underpins ‘Bless This Life’, and captures all the energy and wild romance of the duo’s live performances. It is an absolute must listen.
Lily and King are touring the country to showcase ‘Bless this Life’, which is available for purchase from the Lily and King website or from shows and festivals.
Alawishus Jones & The Outright Lies:
Let Alawishus, Wilby & Cleitus take you folks all the way
back to the year o’nineteen and thirty. They’ll likely tell
you stories about the old times and sing
you some authentic rural blues, rag tunes & maybe even some old time spirituals.
What can we expect from AJ&theOLs – Old blues.
– Maybe some pre blues stuff that contains elements essential to the birth of blues like work song, field holler & ragged time
– Mostly what you can expect though is 3 guys having a lot of fun
– Guitar, drums, washboard, bass, trumpet, harmonica & ukulele
– Stories and anecdotes that could have historical significance or might be outright lies
