The Whitlams - Little Cloud: 2CD (2006)Brand new release this week!
The Whitlams' new double album Little Cloud, the Sydney band's sixth studio album after Love this City (1999) and Torch the Moon (2002), the two platinum follow ups to the huge independent hit Eternal Nightcap in 1998. It's a return to the piano and voice, story-telling style Freedman and The Whitlams fans love. The album is broken into two discs. The first, "Little Cloud", is about returning to Sydney with mixed feelings of love and disillusion in an election year. The second, "Apple's Eye", is set in New York, and is about slowly getting strong and well "under a tapestry of stone hung from the sky".
The album was produced by boutique pop maestro J. Walker of Machine Translations, who made it his job to put immediacy and intimacy back into the songs. The result is classic Whitlams. Recorded at the new Electric Avenue in the inner Sydney suburb of Camperdown, Little Cloud features the same personnel as the last two Whitlams albums: piano-playing frontman Tim Freedman, Terepai Richmond on drums, Warwick Hornby on bass and the scene-stealing Jak Housden on guitar.
