CD: Angus and Julia Stone, A Book Like This | Music | The GuardianThis debut release from Aussie siblings Angus and Julia Stone barely rises above strummed acoustic guitars and stripped down drums, but after a few listens it's clutch of gentle melodies have nestled their way inside my head as a summery delight come a few months early. Let's hope the actual weather follows suit soon. They were raised just north of Sydney in a musical family, and started making music in that environment more as a personal hobby than a way of earning a living. A couple of years ago they naturally gravitated to performing together, and not long after that relocated to the UK. A couple of EPs later and they've now got a full length release to their name.
Angus & Julia Stone – A Book Like This
A recent conversation online with a female friend turned unexpectedly heavy. In a faint nod to Regina Spektor, Julia sang: "We're like statues from different cities". An elaborate joke out of intersecting-film references followed, "Don't quote me another phrase". We signed off, in that weird no-man's land of boy-girl relations. One thing seemed true, at least: Julia Stone sounded more wounded than either of us.
A Book Like This takes strength from its two young songwriters, both of whom approach love and coming-of-age issues from their own gendered perspective. Leahey concluded " A Book Like This is an appropriate soundtrack for lazy Sunday afternoons and slow Monday mornings, when the pace of the world matches the relaxed gait of this band.
