Horray a Kangaroo Moon album no less! The first this century. May there be many more before the end of 2099.

A classic Moonie mixture of poignant/aware Mark Robson songs, some nicely fluffy, stoner even (if it's not an contradiction) jigs and reels and some acousto-spacey explorations, a bit of Eastern European gypsy vibe, a brush of didgeridoo - in short all that one might wish for from a Kangaroo Moon album.

And it's all aided and beautifully abetted by Gong's Dave Sturt and dedicated to daevid.

In a tri-fold card sleeve.
