new music to my ears

Friday the 12th of March 2010 had been marked in my diary for months. I waited ever so patiently for this day to arrive. Like an excited teenager, I couldn't wait for Angus and Julia Stone to release their new album Down the Way.

Finally the 12th of March was here, by lunchtime I had purchased the album through iTunes and was playing it LOUD on my iPod. Technology today! I've barely stopped playing it since. I'm a huge fan, enjoying this new album SO MUCH!!

What can I say, other than you must treat yourself to this new album. Click here for a listen. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.


  1. OMG How beautiful is this album!? Glad to 'meet' another fan.

    Usually it takes me a while to get used to an album, but I loved it as I love A Book Like This. I love Draw Your Swords, And the Boys, For You and Big Jet Plane.

    I bought the special edition CD set and it comes with a bonus disc of their most recent B-Sides - including the ones where they sung eachother's songs. I love the bonus disc too.

    The thing I love about A&J is their CDs are a whole experience - great artwork, great music, great lyrics.

  2. Hi Carly,

    Yes, they are absolutely brilliant! I was just listening to 'For You'. I love everything about their music. So very glad I learnt of their music.

  3. I'm seeing them play on 25 March.
    They're brilliant.

  4. How lucky are you!! Enjoy! I'd love to read a review :)

  5. Thanks for the tip - I'll definitely check it out! How's the study going?

  6. I love them too. I can't wait to buy the album but will have to wait until my spending hiatus is over!

  7. They are great aren't they? I am always impressed with their new stuff, this albumn is no exception!
    Glad you are enjoying it...

  8. I can't believe how many of you are already listening to Angus and Julia!!

  9. I've loved them since June 2006!
    I heard them on JJJ doing Paper Aeroplane and Private Lawns.
    And then I saw them play live at the Rob Roy. I went in to buy a ticket and there were these three shy looking people near the bar. They asked me if I was seeing Angus and Julia Stone that night. I said yes, and raved over them. Then I put two and two together, and I said 'YOU ARE ANGUS AND JULIA STONE!!'
    And since then I've spoken to them at each gig I have seen them at. There are some pictures of me with them on my Facebook.
    At the Corner Hotel gig they invited me backstage. And Hepburn Springs I chatted to them for ages out the front of the venue. They are so nice.

  10. Hi there - thanks so much for your kind words about my review :)
    I want some practice at writing reviews because I don't think they're a strength because I don't know music.
    You definitely have to go along to a future gig - they are wonderful live.
    Down the Way is such a gorgeous album.
    And yes, Julia's dress was amazing. You can't really see the beaded bodice, but the green was divine.
    Glad I could put you in the concert without you being there. xx
