What people have been saying about Jordie Lane & The Sleepers new album GLASSELLLAND

‘unrestrained and undeniably authentic.’ – ROLLING STONE

‘Glassellland has a kaleidoscopic quality that extends Lane’s musical scope and range of vocal expression.’ – Tom Hillier, The Australian

‘Album Of The Week’ on Double J

‘America Won’t You Make My Dreams Come True’ is a highlight. Not just because of its self- referential subject matter, but because of the way the verses are so taut and attention grabbing before giving way to a big, Mellotron laden chorus.’ -Dan Condon, Double J

‘The strength of songwriting takes the best parts from all of your folk / country-rock / americana icons of the past 60 years.’ – 4ZZZ Radio Brisbane

Jordie Lane & The Sleepers new record ‘GLASSELLLAND’ is officially out now in Australia and New Zealand. Buy your copy from the links below or in all good retail stores around Australia, iTunes, Spotify and Google Play.

Some things they are already saying…

Lane’s brooding intensity and elongated lines of emphasis remains the album’s constant, yet his ambidexterity — both with structure and subject matter — results in an album that sounds unrestrained and undeniably authenticJonny Nail, ROLLING STONE

“Truth be told, there’s not really a bad sound on this album, rustling around as Jordie Lane’s brushy voice and new folky style does… 
Damn its good.” 
Particular winners include Frederick Steele McNeil Ferguson, Better Not Go Outside, Dreaming’ The Life (complete with its reminder to have spare underpants – seriously) and Interlude #31 for its creepy Mr Whippy van-like awesome. While competition for the best lyric is tough, for mine the winner is “How does she squeeze the truth from my drink?” from the final track Rambling Mind. Damn it’s good. Timmy Rogers, Courtney Barnett and Nick Cave rolled into one melancholy, regretful melody. Worth the album for this tune alone.  4 Stars, Liz Giuffre, The Music

4ZZZ radio in Brisbane listed it in their Best New Arrivals 
Jordie Lane: Glassellland (Blood Thinner Records)
– Jordie Lane’s maturation as an alt-country raconteur overflows on his latest album Glassellland. The strength of songwriting takes the best parts from all of your folk / country-rock / americana icons of the past 60 years. And yet, it’s depth never has you dismissing his songs as derivative, this is a true embodiment of a rich cultural lineage.  
Nick Rodwell, 4ZZZ Radio
