    In chemistry, you learn that combining two inconspicuous-looking substances can often create a whole new entity, sometimes in the midst of a rather impressive explosion. This same principle can be applied to Australian brother-sister duo Angus & Julia Stone. READ MORE HERE: wearethefilter.blogspot.com.au

    Reductive re-workings of his heroes only remind you of his limitations. Lacking a pop compass, Stone just sounds lost. [Aug 2012, p.111]

    The album is somewhat redeemed by a duo of commercially viable singles [Broken Brights, Wooden Chair]... As for the remainder of the album, there's little to recommend.

    Stone delivers what may be his masterpiece in Broken Brights, an album that seamlessly inhabits the resurgent Laurel Canyon sound.
