Crime In Australia (PRE ORDER)

Regular price $42.00

Sydney's PARTY DOZEN (saxophonist Kirsty Tickle & percussionist Jonathan Boulet) are back with a new album, Crime In Australia - the follow-up to their international breakthrough album, The Real Work (2022). That album included many new developments in the band's evolution that earned them significant praise - most notably the Nick-Cave-featured "Macca The Mutt", the surprisingly radio-friendly skronk of "Fruits Of Labour," & the epic string-drenched beauty of "Risky Behaviour." 

As with its predecessor, Crime In Australia was written, recorded, produced and mixed by the duo themselves in their studio in Marrickville, Sydney. This time, the location was more of an influence than on previous occasions, as Boulet explains: "Marrickville in the 1960s-70s was a notorious crime hot spot. If a car was stolen, or someone was missing, they'd look for them in Marrickville. Since then, the area has been highly gentrified and slowly the once grimy industrial warehouse lined streets are being swapped for monstrous apartment blocks with palm trees. We began without any theme in mind, just the beginnings of some song ideas.
