There's always been an introspective, often dark undercurrent to the best of contemporary Australian songwriting from Nick Cave to the Triffids to The Apartments to The Go-Betweens and Sodastream are no exception, though they seem to have harnessed the melancholy and sculpted it into something beautiful. Karl Smith has the most expressive folk voice since Nick Drake and along with Peter Cohen, he's crafted one of the most touching albums of recent memory. Timeless. 12 tracks, UK import.
