Huckleberry Swedes - Small Cage Big Land by JL Music Publishing published on 2010/11/10 00:16:20 +0000 www.huckleberryswedes.com From the album Suburban Dreaming, out now on Vitamin Records Produced by Midnight Oil guitarist Jim Moginie and engineered by a live-in-a-room guru Mick Wordley, Suburban Dreaming is rich in sound and vitality, great guitar tones and vintage electric pianos help to colour the songs. But, beside Troy Loakes' incredible voice - he could easily take up a career as a white soul singer if the band ever falls - it's the songs themselves that take the spotlight in Suburban Dreaming. It's one of those great albums where every song reminds you a little bit of a classic, but not enough so that you can actually pinpoint which classic. Take a soul singer like Marvin Gaye, send him to Neil Young's farm for work experience, get him to jam with Levon Helm and the Band and then take him on a fishing trip with Paul Kelly and you'll have an idea of the Huckleberry Swedes. Guitars, Banjo, Hammond Organ, Squeeze Box and great harmonies.
