Adele & Glenn

Carrington Street

Release Date: 06/29/2012 · Format: CD/LP (+CD) · Catalog-No: GRCD/LP 764

Adele & Glenn, ex-Brisbanites and former Go-Betweens members, are true pop stars. They play original pop music effortlessly and are a joy to watch. They have spent the last 12 months locked away in a small studio in deepest Marrickville. With carefully collected instruments old and new, and a specially modified microphone plugged into a box with valves in it, they have pieced together a new Australian album of depth and beauty.

Throughout the windy winter days and dark nights on the outskirts of inner-western Sydney, Australia in 2011, Adele & Glenn patiently knitted pure-as-glass melodies to keenly observed lyrics from a modern Australian city life. Add to that, the sometimes rich and royal, other times factory-empty instrumentation and harmonies, and we are left with a sleeping giant of an album, called Carrington Street.

Adele & Glenn united to perform their own material after a history of playing with some of Australia’s most well loved and iconic musicians. They first met in a practice room in Brisbane to accompany Robert Forster of the Go-Betweens during his enigmatic solo career. And in each other, they found a good friend, and an inspiring stage and studio accomplice. Later Adele joined The Dave Graney Show. Glenn was a member of Australian idiosyncratic popsters Custard. And European music fans will mostly remember them for being the backbone of the reformed Go-Betweens from 2000 til 2006.

Today, Carrington Street shines like a full moon in a city park. It is Adele & Glenn’s debut album, and it sets a new path in their career.
