Angus & Julia Stone - Down The Way -2010-
(Folk, Acoustic, Alternative)

From: Sydney, Australia

Having spent the last two years touring the world in support of their critically acclaimed debut – A Book Like This – Angus and Julia Stone return with their eagerly anticipated sophomore release Down The Way. On Down The Way they make their debut as producers, and develop their sound without losing the spirit of their debut. There’s been a subtle shift in gear, evidence of a growing confidence - the music gravitates from sparse to rich and textured arrangements yet never loses its etherealness and charm. The Australian brother/sister duo gracefully navigate through the 13 tracks, exploring themes of desire, lost love, self-discovery and beauty in the most unlikely of places. Once again the duo share song-writing duties, their individual styles juxtaposing yet complimenting the other. The duo have ventured everywhere from the Scottish Highlands to the heart of the USA. This tireless touring has expanded their audience and with a worldwide tour kicking off in their native Australia in March the siblings are set to continue to win yet more hearts across the globe in 2010. Angus & Julia Stone simply make beautiful music. Check it out for only $5.99 by clicking the album art above.
