NASHVILLE! HAWAII! WATERVIEW!
The latest offering from the worlds greatest indie/ alt country/ Hawaiian/ folk/pop band! Mark Lyons, Jonathan Brunette's elder cousin, is a genius of lyric and melody, and his partner Dionne Taylor's Hawaiian steel guitar playing is manic brilliance. In this, their second album, Mark has created something of a concept album around his growing up in the Auckland suburb of Waterview. With wonderful liner notes explaining the lyrics and music, and artwork that was hand drawn by Mark in excruciating detail with coloured pencils, this is truly a labour of love. Highly recommended!
