Releases from Tobias Cummings, Charles Jenkins and the Zhivagos, and Way Out West…
Tobias Cummings ‘A Trophy’ (CD & 12″ LP) (Departed Sounds/Other Tongues), engineered by Wez Prictor and Tim Whitten, mastered by Adam Dempsey:
“Tobias Cummings is a fascinating prospect. The kind Melbourne specialises in producing; writers of tear-inducing potential million-sellers… it’s an evocative album that grows in quality with repeated listens… Cummings’ innate sense of melody, use of dynamics, masterful musicianship and deft sensitivity, it never feels anything less than buoyant.” – Mess and Noise.
Charles Jenkins and the Zhivagos ‘Walk This Ocean’ (Dust Devil Music), mastered by Tony Mantz:
“Whatever you’re looking for in a good song, Charles Jenkins and his Zhivagos have got it, in spades.” – Beat magazine (see below).
Way Out West ‘Effects of Weather’ (Jazzhead), mixed by Myles Mumford, mastered by Adam Dempsey:
“The band… joins in the creation of brilliant, highly coloured, pleasing and adventurous music that is international and somehow Australian in feeling. Ten stars.” – SIMA.
