Only three years passed between the Stones’ debut and this follow-up record, but the siblings seem to have aged exponentially in the interim. While 2007’s A Book Like This found the two setting their own adolescence to a soundtrack of acoustic guitars and sparse percussion, Down the Way is a decidedly adult album, filled with textured arrangements and a wider array of influences. Angus and Julia handle their own production this time around, and the resulting songs jump from panoramic chamber pop -- often with a rootsy, Americana edge -- to bedroom folk songs, with both members trading off vocals and instrumental duties. Julia still sings in a soft, fairy tale voice, but her own songs are bolder than they once were, with tracks like “Hold On” taking much of their strength from the contrast between her gauzy, childlike croon and the nocturnal-sounding instruments that surround it. Even so, brother Angus gets the “most improved” award, having moved past the solo folk songs he favored on A Book Like This (although some of those show up here, too) in favor of lush, collaborative material. On “Draw Your Swords,” one of the album’s three tunes to stretch past six minutes, he rips into the final refrain with gusto, shouting the lyrics in a cracked baritone before adopting a Jeff Buckley-ish falsetto. © Andrew Leahey /TiVo

Australian sibling folk-rock duo Angus & Julia Stone broke big with their 2010 sophomore album, Down the Way. The album, which debuted at number one in Australia, took home five ARIA music awards, including Album of the Year. On the heels of their success, the famously shy duo began work on a follow-up, but eventually shelved the idea in favor of taking some time off to pursue solo work. However, coaxed back into the studio by super-producer Rick Rubin, the Stone siblings eventually returned to their ruminative, melodic, and often melancholy collaborations with 2014's Angus & Julia Stone. In many ways, what you see is pretty much what you get from the Stones, with their shaggy hair and hippie-chic clothes matching their penchant for acoustic introspection. Indeed, there aren't too many surprises here, with the siblings sticking to their formula: intimate, folky songs with poignant lyrics that usually bend toward the darker, sadder aspects of life. What commands your attention, however, is the way that Julia's cherubic, sandpaper doll of a voice contrasts with Angus' more clear-toned and casual vocal style. They also display a knack for coming up with lyrics that contain bittersweet, poetic juxtapositions, always hinting at deeper, more complex emotions. On "Other Things," duetting in clipped unison phrases, they sing "Go put the cat outside/'Cos we've got things to do," and "There's a plane in the sky/If those people fall they will die/I've got other things on my mind." It's this kind of focus on the ennui, the mundane tragedy that permeates many people's daily lives, that works as creative fodder for Angus & Julia Stone. Ultimately, it's that ennui, combined with the pair's heartbreaking sense of melody, that makes this album a delightfully sad yet engaging listen. © Matt Collar /TiVo

Für ihr drittes, im Jahre 2014 erschienenes Album haben Angus und Julia Stone die Dienste eines Rick Rubin in Anspruch genommen. Das war eigentlich der große Produzent, der die Geschwister dazu anspornte, mit ihren Duos weiterzumachen, nachdem sich alle beide in ihren Soloprojekte verwirklicht hatten. Das sonnige Pop- und Folk-Duo aus Australien coverte eine herrliche, einfache, aber nie zu einfache Platte mit sanft klingenden Strukturen, himmlischen Träumereien und goldenen Melodien. Mit dieser Botschaft made in L.A. überwältigten uns Angus und Julia Stone wie selten zuvor…Drei Jahre später kehrten sie in ihr australisches Zuhause zurück. Dort an der Ostküste in der Nähe von Byron Bay südlich von Brisbane konzipierten sie eine Platte, die einen Hauch mehr Nüchternheit an den Tag legte… „Diesmal", erläutert Angus, "haben wir jedes Lied gemeinsam geschrieben.“ Und seine Schwester fügt hinzu: „Das war ganz einfach magisch, weil wir, Angus und ich, noch nie so viel Zeit zusammen verbracht hatten. Wir beide ganz allein. Es gab immer mindestens einen Toningenieur oder einen Manager, aber in der letzten Schreibphase und bei der Einspielung, das ging über acht Wochen, da waren nur er und ich, und die Ruhe auf dem Land. Das war eine wunderbare Zeit…Jeder von uns komponiert mit einem jeweils ganz anderen Stil, aber beide zusammen scheinen gut zu funktionieren. Irgendwie sind gerade diese Unterschiede der Grund, warum es so und nicht anders klingt.“ Am Ende findet man immer diesen leicht melancholischen Schleier, der sich wie falscher Herzschmerz am Bettrand ihres schlichten Pop-Folk niederlässt. Das Tandem revolutioniert zwar nicht ihre Kunst und räumt auch nicht mit der Vergangenheit auf, aber es gelingt ihnen immer wieder, die entsprechende Melodie zu finden. Die kleine harmonische Eigenheit, welche aus Belanglosem etwas ganz Wunderbares macht. © MD/Qobuz
