about

With a powerful voice, the lovely Miss Mitvalsky offers a scorching soul polemic, a tale of miscommunication and love gone wrong in the Bobzilla-penned tune “Friend or Foe”. Chantal has paid her dues on the Australian scene, singing in a variety of groups from Jackson Jackson to Wonderground. Backed by a hot rhythm section and tuff horns, she makes this song her own. This is Brunswick soul at its finest.

The PutBacks are known for their deep funky groove and their dirty, raw and melodic sound. After years as a backing band for vocalists such as Kate Ceberano and Nat Dunn, the PutBacks began peddling their own brand of raw instrumental funk in 2007. “Diamond Cutter” written by Tom Martin features a 3 piece horn section alongside the powerhouse rhythm section that is The PutBacks.

Dawn is a gritty, uniquely Australian record, simultaneously classic and contemporary. The songwriting is in turns optimistic, angry and melancholic, and on occasions bruisingly honest. ... more
