Angus Stone - Broken Brights  -2012-
(Folk, Rock, Acoustic)

Broken Brights marks a departure for Angus Stone, and not just from recording with his long-term musical co-conspirator Julia. For the past seven years, he’s been travelling the world as one half of brother-sister duo Angus & Julia Stone. Broken Brights, produced by Angus, is also proof that he can deftly shift between genres without compromising his signature sound. While title track "Broken Brights" is a return-to-form for Stone it's a nostalgic, dreamy tribute to our youth "Bird On the Buffalo" is a livelier composition, incorporating distorted guitar riffs. There is a story behind each track, which is pretty cool. Angus Stone is quickly becoming one of contemporary music’s most acclaimed, yet inherently enigmatic, young artists. What Angus Stone has captured in the recording process is this: memories and imaginings from his pilgrimage around the planet. What he says about going solo could easily sum up the experience of listening to Broken Brights: “It’s a whole different trip.”
