"Here's a concept: A breakup record, written with your ex-girlfriend after you’ve broken up. Nic Dalton is an Australian indie legend (The Plunderers, Godstar, Sneeze), who became a big pop star in the '90s, playing bass in The Lemonheads. He also runs the Half A Cow label. This solo album sees him taking another left turn, exploring country, bluegrass and folk as he documents his breakup with Lucy Lehmann (who also plays on the record and provides the liner notes). The rootsy and reflective record is one of the year's best." - Australiana with Jeff Jenkins
Following on from 2005's Home of the Big Regret is this 12 tracker from Nic Dalton and his Gloomchasers. Against a backdrop of late 60s-style folk-rock and featuring banjo and mandolin on every track, swamps of backing vocals and special guest - Australian living legend - Bernie McGann on saxophone. Includes versions of Skyhooks' "All My Friends Are Getting Married" and Danny O'Keefe's "I’m Sober Now".
