Simpático - The Difference Between Alone & Lonely
Debut full length from prolific and accomplished Sweet William vocalist and guitarist Jason Sweeney and his band Simpático. Following the critical success of the "Postal Museum" EP last year, Simpático was immersed in listening to records by Sea Stories, the Triffids, Rabbit's Wedding and other brilliant Australian bands from the 80's and early 90's. This album is a dedication to that sound–warm, summery and melancholic tunes that reflect the harsh and dramatic Australian landscape matched with a longing and desire for lost loves. "The Difference Between Alone & Lonely" features twelve new tracks blending the strongest songwriting of Jason's career with masterful keyboards, perfectly strummed guitars and that oh-so-dulcet voice. Intelligent, pastoral pop with an occasional electronic edge suitable for fans of the Wake, Pale Saints, Go Betweens, and Trembling Blue Stars.
