Product Notes

'With titles like 'Slaughter Falls', 'Posthumorous' and 'Glass Eye at the Keyhole', Blue Wine obviously don't intend to follow in the footsteps of fellow Brisbanites Savage Garden... vocalist Kahl Monticone half-slurring, half-growling, 'Swinging on a shoestring' like some curse while strings of cello and violin pasts piss their lifeline away in the background. It's the place where piercing high-note guitar feedback bumps casually against a softly-plucked melody line, shivered clean with muted drum rolls, and this voice, this disembowelled voice that lingers like an aching ghost. Brackenridge and Madden weld their instruments to the swirling cacophony yet there are enough spaces here to breathe, to whisper and just enough room to suffocate when all three come together again. 'It's quite catchy, in a 'Berlin' meets the GoBetweens meets the sound of Ian Curtis hanging himself kind of way, and it's enough to keep you company at 4 am on a Thursday morning when the candles have burnt low...' - Geoff Parkes, Logged Off.
