Dead Letter Chorus

A Sydney band that I was introduced to recently and is definitely worth checking out is Dead Letter Chorus. If you are a little jaded by Nu-wave pretenders or Wolfmother type revisionists then this 6 piece band will put you in touch with genuine, authentic sounds. They haven't been on the scene for a long time, but they look to be heading into the recording studio sometime this year. The music that I have heard seems to place them in that blend of rock, country and folk that when done right produces a beautiful sound. They list their influences as Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Bright Eyes, Martha Wainwright, The Shins, The Frames, so you can perhaps get a feel for their music from that list. I have a couple of live tracks here that will give you a further idea, they feature the voices of Gabrielle Huber and Cameron Potts on lead vocals.

MP3: Don't Get Shiela (live)
MP3: Winter Solace (live)

You can listen to some demos on their My Space for a further taste.
Also they have a few live dates coming up including one at the Annandale on the 17th.

    i like songs about how girls torture me.

    the running through my mind you must be tired line is kinda corny but the song is something special.

    his voice is kinda whatever, but i think another year of playing with his band he'll probably extend his range into something unique.

    thanks for the recommend.
