A Redder Shade of Rust

A Redder Shade of Rustis Peabody’s fifth studio album and the first since 2010’s Loose Manifesto. It also might just be the band’s most cohesive album yet. Recorded in a brand new school hall with Tim Kevin at the helm of knobs and Jamie Hutchings back in the producer’s chair (as he was for the first three albums), this album is ten tracks of pure indie-rock-pop joy and beauty.

Listen to the heavy rhythms of album opener, You’re with Me and you can hear the open space of the large, taxpayer-funded wooden hall. Likewise in the droney Perfectly Fine and the ad-lib-esque roaming of Sometimes. When Kevin loudly declares, “rolling!” from the other side of the hall, at the start of some of the tracks, you know you’re in a big room. And there really was tape rolling in that machine, too!

Lyrically, Chamie’s youth and a good dose of nostalgia are sprinkled right throughout the album, with tunes about old cars (Gemini), old friends (Julie) and old neighbourhoods (You’re with Me) all taking you on a little tour of the ‘burbs of Sydney, if not the museum of Chamie’s funny little mind. The only Brayovic-penned number (Too Many Days) also deals with some long-gone days and the joys of wasting away your twenties…. and thirties.

After four albums that have entrenched themselves into Sydney and Australia’s independent music lore, this is a band that will keep adding to its canon for as long as its members are still shuffling along with a semblance of a pulse. A band whose dedication to great albums and great live shows won’t slow down, even if the frequency of that output does. A Redder Shade of Rust as an album is a bona fide keeper. Save yourself some time and trouble and press repeat after you press play.

Release
The Huntington Estate Music Festival is one of the brightest stars in Australia’s musical firmament. For three decades, it has been bringing together top-flight musicians from around the country and around the world to present a breathtaking array of chamber music masterpieces, both iconic favourites and delicious new discoveries. Presented by the Huntington Estate Winery in association with Musica Viva Australia, and held in the winery’s Barrel Room, one of the most remarkable and surprising music venues in the world, the Festival is a delight to audiences and musicians alike.After 30 stellar years of exceptional music-making, however, the 2019 Festival will be the last, with Huntington Estate owners Tim and Nicky Stevens reluctantly deciding that their grapes – and their young family – must come first. To mark this significant occasion, ABC Classic is proud to delve into its broadcast archives to present this selection of some of the Festival’s most memorable performances across a typically diverse and intriguing range of repertoire: from Schubert and Dvořák to Bach’s astonishing eldest son Wilhelm Friedemann and Australian composers Ross Edwards and Ian Munro.It was Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra who began the Festival and established it as a serious contender on the world stage – and the hottest concert tickets in the country! This album includes superb three recordings from those early years: music of Mendelssohn, Brahms and Percy Grainger.In 2006, the ACO passed the baton to Musica Viva and Artistic Director Carl Vine, opening up the Festival’s artist roster to an extraordinary range of musicians, both local and international. From among the literally hundreds of thrilling performances, this album features New York-based Australian pianist Andrea Lam, Russian-Armenian clarinettist Narek Arutyunian, the rich bass-baritone of Teddy Tahu Rhodes and Vienna’s acclaimed Eggner Trio, along with regular Festival guests the Goldner String Quartet and the rising stars of the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) Chamber Orchestra.…/2The CD of this compilation is available exclusively at the Festival itself, but for all those who can’t make the trip to Mudgee, ABC Classic is releasing the full album as a digital album, for download and streaming, so that audiences all around the world can share in the celebration. TRACKLISTING  1     MENDELSSOHN Symphony No. 3 ‘Scottish’: II.
