Dope Lemon | Smooth Big Cat
Angus and Julia Stone have a massive following in Australia, largely thanks to the success of 2010's song "Big Jet Plane." I have to admit, I have never liked them and immediately wrote them off upon hearing that song and its indomitable rise to the top of the Australian music charts. However, here we are nearly ten years after and the brother and sister duo have reached a fork in their folk music road, venturing into solo work. For Angus, the results have been -- creatively and musically -- much more palatable. Under the moniker Dope Lemon, Angus has released his second album, 'Smooth Big Cat,' an album dripping in smooth, psychedelic rhythms that still carries the indie folk elements that made the two famous.
The album seems to allow Angus Stone the autonomy to explore the far expanses of music, at least within his realm. The results seem limitless yet effortless. The end result is an album basking in a warm glow that is hard not to get lost in; the kind of warmth that wants to give you a hug on a Sunday morning as you are nursing a hangover.
