Strange Brew!

They surely were ‘Songs of Mystery & Imagination’ at Staves Brewery yesterday, just like the ad said!

A big and cosmic thanks to our sonic comrades WAHOO GHOST and CROW MOUNTAIN (photos below) for making the evening so much more.

Wahoo Ghost (above) are ethereal with an edge; there’s something harder beneath the shimmering surface of those atmospheric guitar textures, like a coral reef.

Crow Mountain’s particular sea-coast of Bohemia just might be Appalachia. Bluegrassy originals are complemented by a rotating roster of guest musicians – here’s a squeezebox player; there’s a Flatt-pickin’ guitarist. Seize hold of their new CD ‘Shallow Water’!

Mystery & Imagination

IMGP1039aA heapin’ helpin’ of Universal Mystery and Multidimensional Love upstairs at Staves Brewery (Glebe, Sydney) the other night when Mysterious Universe teamed up with 3D Love for a night of alt.rootsish (stick that in the dictionary pronto!) vibed music. IMGP1043aIMGP1021a

I took on the job of kicking off with a solo Starfired set, then 3D Love moved on in with their double-vocal attack. Finally the rest of the Mysterious Universe joined in for a full serving of our regular program, spiced up by doing the last three songs on the Guild Starfire archtop instead of the electric mandolin.
