“We’ve been graced with another supreme release from a band that is becoming one of the best swampy country acts Australia’s produced in some time.”
Dan Condon, Double J
Early this year the band reconvened to inhabit a studio space. Songs came quickly and they walked away from the desk with a new record and realisation that when they were writing, recording and putting on some of the finest live shows around, they were unstoppable.
That reinforcement is tattooed on record opener, lead single and title track, ‘Takes One To Know One’. It encaspsulates both a childish insult and a driving sound of classic Graveyard Train. Repeated listens of the entire LP reveals gems and oddities buried in a sublime, sometimes tortured marriage of country music, stoner rock, classic Graveyard gang vocals, haunting storytelling and the stellar musicianship that dyed-in-the-wool fans of the band have come to expect.
