Recorded over 2 days in his Melbourne apartment, 'Commune' is the debut album for singer-songwriter Lester-John. Lester-John is accompanied by only an acoustic guitar, with no overdubs and no other instrumentation. The vocals are desperate and searching and combine with symbolic lyrics to create an album that pulls at the heartstrings. The natural sound of the guitar and voice keep you coming back. Songs are polished and sound 'right'. Give 'Commune' a listen and see what you think! Song notes: 1) Make Amends - saddest song, heavy symbolism 2) Girl Down The Road - upbeat number 3) Final Days - sung in higher vocal register 4) Live For A Day - would be the first single for this album 5) Remnants - slow and emotive, has one three-note hook throughout 6) Regression - calypso rhythm, harmonics at end 7) Watch Behind It's Malcontent - upbeat and short, vocals keep on coming 8) The Lives We Share - one of the more emotional songs 9) Not Enough - vocals stand out from guitar a little more 10) Primordial Night - war song about an ambush 11) Fall Of The Quay - slow and emotional, harmonic overtones on the guitar Credits: Recording engineer: Matt Voight Mixed by: Matt Voigt Mixed at: Abercorn Recordings Mastering engineer: Joseph Carra Mastered at: Crystal Mastering Cover art: Leon Williams / Small Studio (cover photograph courtesy of private family collection) All songs written and performed by B Gray.
