Description

    Legendary Brisbane 8-piece Halfway return with their hot new 5th album, 'The Golden Halfway Record!'

    For a band that redefined a quintessentially Australian sound on their 2014 classic 'Any Old Love,' Queensland's Halfway travelled halfway around the world to record their follow up 'The Golden Halfway Record' in Nashville, Tennessee.

    Working with lauded producer Mark Nevers (Calexico, Bonnie Prince Billy, George Jones) and releasing for the first time through ABC Music, the band left to find a global sound and returned with an ode to adolescence in Halfway's core duo John Busby and Chris Dale's hometown of Rockhampton.

    The album's first cut "Bret Canham's Leather Jacket" tells the story of a kid they knew who, with his penchant for 'weird' clothes, hairstyles and music, stood out and suffered for it.

    The followup, 'The Golden Halfway Record' has reclaimed the band's love of rock while retaining the country feel of a group of troubadours ready to not just tell their story, but continue to tell the story of Australia.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Slightly Tarnished Golden Halfway Record In 2015 on a road trip to Bathurst, I picked up a copy of Halfway’s 2013 album “Any Old Love” at Vinnies in Springwood for a $1.00 and played it over and over again on the trip thinking this was good “Australiana” as opposed to “Americana” and formed a favourable impression of the band. When “The Golden Halfway Record” got good reviews I thought it would compare well with what I had heard and bought it. To be honest, what could have been a great record suffered from a mediocre mix with the vocals lost to a large extent in the otherwise excellent backing. Going all the way to Nashville to do the recording may have backfired leaving the result sounding a bit like an Australian Wilco from their early days with Tweedy turned too far down in the mix. Rating? 3 out of 5.
