The Blackeyed Susans are heading into the studio to work on an album with Dan Luscombe back on board. Some songs have been staples in the set list for a time but there are some other gems hidden away beneath the surface. Dan has been busy with Courtney Barnett and The Drones so we're looking forward to a few tales and some interesting production ideas.
Meanwhile Rob is about to embark on a tour with producer/guitarist Shane O'Mara. After the successful pledge campaign that brought together 'Wounded Bird' another project beckoned.
'Low Fidelity' is a collection of song requests from fans and friends, recorded on his iphone in the hills of Tecoma and embellished at Yikesville Studio by Shane O'Mara... from Pulp to Lee Hazelwood, Glen Campbell to Spiritualized, Edwyn Collins to Chad's Tree ... it's a musical mixed bag.

In the meanwhile Rob heads to Darwin this weekend to play The Railway Club on Sunday May 24 and then heads to Newcastle on Thursday June 4 to perform at Lizotte's.
