New Album Releases For Tuesday (3/3/2009)
Angus and Julia Stone

It’s been over two years since Angus and Julia Stone began writing and recording A Book Like This. Since then the brother/sister duo have become platinum selling artists and household names in the UK and Australia. In 2007, the album debut at #5 on the Australian charts. I’m excited that the band is finally releasing the album in the States. I absolutely love this record. They do a perfect job of splitting vocal duties, but on tracks like “The Beast” the shine as a pair. This is a beautiful album and well worth exploring.

The Stones will make their SXSW debut next month as part KCRW’s Official Showcase on Wednesday, March 18. The pair will also appear on KCRW on Monday, March 9th. You can catch them opening up for Brett Dennen on March 24th and 25th @ The House of Blues Sunset.

Key Tracks: The Beast, Just A Boy, Silver Coin, Wasted, Paper Aeroplane, Hollywood, Jewels and Gold, All The Colours and Lonely Hands
