What: Good Fortune by 78 Saab.
When: October 15 through Other Tongues.
Key notes: Fourth album for the enduring Sydney four-piece – singer/guitarist Ben Nash, guitarist Jake Andrews, bassist Garth Tregillgas and drummer Nicholai Danko – who formed in 1995. First on new Sydney imprint Other Tongues after parting ways with Ivy League. Follows 2007’s The Bells Line, which we described as their “most complete record yet”. Recorded with the band’s long-time studio cohort Tim Whitten (Powderfinger, The Go-Betweens, Hoodoo Gurus, Augie March). Features a reworked version of ‘Never Gonna Be’, which was originally written in a Brisbane backpacker hostel in 1997.
From the presser: “Good Fortune is full of the dynamics, mood, melody and classic songwriting … Ben Nash’s world-weary lyrics are at their best, whether they’re lamenting the passing of an old friend on ‘Warm Jets’, or admiring the magic and wonder of a child’s world on ‘Small Things’.”
