SAT 16TH FEB 8:30PM
What do the ACO, Jim Moginie from Midnight Oil, Steve Pigram from the Pigram Brothers, Brian Ritchie from the Violent Femmes, Richard Tognetti, cinematographer Jon Frank and astounding indigenous musician “Yamatji Man” Mark Atkins have in common?
DELSINKI has joined creative forces with them all.
Shape-shifting uncategorizable post-colonialist DELSINKI will release his debut album, “And No Place Was Found for Them” an amalgam of honest and compelling narratives about war, loss, ageing, tribalism, emotions, nature, the futility of urban life and the perils of conformity. Big themes, fully realised.
Produced elegantly by Cameron McKenzie, the songs are by turn brittle and delicate, orchestral, then rollicking, then hard hitting, then reflective. The album covers the scope of DELSINKI’s extraordinary gamut of styles and collaborations, and each song is accompanied by a deluxe video.
Grateful for small mercies, and being a bower bird par excellence, DELSINKI’s approach contains traces of (amongst others) of Leonard Cohen, Tim Winton, John Brack, and bush poets and dreamers, all of whom litter this unique vision of contemporary Australian life.
Delsinki has a crack band, including Justin Brady from Things of Stone and Wood, a top notch rhythm section and vocalists Ruby, Brooke Taylor and Coby Grant, all of whom share the spotlight on this stunning album.
Delsinki’s music is represented by GO ! / GoGaga - the new home for the songs of Cash Savage, Peep Tempel, Tumbleweed and others
They will be joined by Desperateens who feature musicians from ’Trial Kennedy’ and ‘Ecca Vandal’. Desperateens are normally a 7 piece but for this show will be doing a special line up - two guys and two gals with harmonies galore.
