The Go-Betweens

Australian band the Go-Betweens returned in 2002 with their eighth album Bright Yellow, Bright Orange, the follow-up to The Friends of Rachel Worth, which was the first album for the band after an hiatus of 12 years since the previous album 16 Lovers Lane which was originally released in 1988. Nothing much has changed though. The archtypal jangly guitar sound associated with the band is there, the band's sense of melody is still there, the lyrics still find their foundations in every day life. So here's a few songs for you all...

From Bright Yellow, Bright Orange:

Too Much of One Thing
Something For Myself

From The Friends of Rachel Worth:

When She Sang About Angels

From Tallulah:

Right Here
The House That Jack Kerouac Built

From 16 Lovers Lane:

Streets of your Town

The Go-Betweens are my all time favorite band so its always great to see them mentioned. They'll have a new album out in the next couple of months along with a tour which hopefully find its way to the US this time.

I hadn't heard about the new album, I will definitely get it though - hope to catch them live too, I have yet to have the pleasure!
