New: Plum – Pavement

Emerging as a solo project from The Cathy’s, a Sydney band that wants to re-create the sounds of Santa’s Sleigh with guitars, Plum has a name as simple and tasty as the music that comes forth from the project.

“Pavement” is as close to the Elliot Smith renaissance as any Australian artist has come this year. There’s a chorus that goes, “Let the pavement be your friend”, which is damn suitable for a song that deflates you, and forces you into a reclining position. It’s mopier than an afternoon with Eeyore, and has all the drenched, grey beauty of a model out in the rain.
