2008’s Rattlin’ Bones is probably by far my favourite Australian country album of all time. I just love the way that Kasey Chambers and Shane Nicholson stripped the polish off their respective sounds and managed to produce music that has such a timeless quality to it. So I’ve been pretty excited in recent months following the news that Chambers and Nicholson have been spending time in the studio to record their follow up.

Titled Wreck And Ruin the album sees Kasey Chambers and Shane Nicholson once again drawing from the deep well of traditional and contemporary country and folk music. Having both taken time in recent years to go back to recording solo it’s great to see this husband and wife duo working together again. Wreck And Ruin is due for release on the 7th September with the first single “Adam And Eve” Already available on iTunes. Check out the albums cover art here:
