Mythologies

Carlos Marrickvillian It’s a stripped back affair full of dark intent, lush guitars, organ and harmonica. Asides from the songs, the thing I love most about this album is the deep timbre of Michael's voice. His laconic delivery and lyrics, make songs like ’Smoke’ and ‘We lit the lamps’ so atmospheric and compelling.
If you ever loved Mick Harvey’s Pink Elephants or wanted to hear Andy Prieboy, sing Graham Greene’s ‘Monsignor Quixote' ... this is for you. Favorite track: The Officer's Mess.
