A truly exceptional debut from one of Australia's greatest emerging artists. This release should propel Abbe May into the big time. Bookended by two blistering songs, 'Howl And Moan' and 'Lay Me Down', this is a half hour of pure aural pleasure. The album title couldn't be more apt. Contains an excellent single in 'Costanza', and highlights like the rockabilly style 'You Gonna Get It' and powerful 'A Blackout In Your Town'. If you like blues, don't miss this one.
Hundreds of years before the birth of Christ, a collection of love songs grew up. Under the title of the “Most beautiful of songs”, they found a home in the Old Testament-it was Martin Luther who first gave them the name of “Song of songs”-and since that time they have inspired and fascinated a vast number of theologians, mystics, philosophers, poets, painters, and, last but not least, composers. Particularly during the Baroque period, these poetic, sensual, vividly descriptive texts were set over and over again to music, and they inspired librettists to expand on the original texts.
