Last year I featured Lydia by Fur Patrol in the NZ Music Month videos ( a song distinguished by being a favourite of Marian Hobbs and having my old flatmate Simon on the drums). Anyhow, since last Music Month the voice of Fur Patrol, Julia Deans has put out a brilliant solo album, Modern Fables. If you have not heard it, take a listen. Her vocal talent is on show at its absolute best. The single from the album, A New Dialogue, combines both her beautiful tones with some clever songwriting. Enjoy, if you haven’t already.
