Following the success of the release of their cover of Gnarls Barkley’s ‘Crazy’, Ash & the boys kick-off a national Australian tour kicking off this week and have recorded 10 tracks for release, including a whole swag of new originals, killer covers and re-worked hits from Ash Grunwald’s tasty bag of music. And here’s the first original single!
‘The Last Stand’ – Ash Grunwald
We’ve been lucky enough to see Ash perform at shows & festivals around Australia.. he’s one of those lads who’s friendly, quick with a smile and always has time for a chat.. just a normal dude who loves a beer and living life.. and man have you seen him live!
Recorded at St Kilda’s Hothouse Studios, ‘Gargantua’ is out June 20th through Shock Records

Every now & then you hear a sweet summer jam that ignites candy in your heels & a song in your heart.. this is one of those jams..
I stumbled across Sue-Anne Stewart’s ‘Love Gets Sweeter’ in March at The Aussie BBQ – LA on the gem of a CD sampler I picked up from Footstomp Music (Busby Marou, The Medics). Quite swiftly, along with Thelma Plum‘s ‘Around Here’, Ginger & The Ghost‘s ‘Where Wolf’ and more, Sue-Anne’s ‘Love Gets Sweeter’ formed part of the soundtrack and sweet vibe that was to be my Hot & Delicious: SXSW & LA. Roadtrip USA experience.
Her smooth, clear vocals, light guitars and beautiful, melodic keys are rather reminiscent of Sheryl Crow and the track is the first single just released off Sue-Anne’s upcoming album produced by Anthony Lycenko (Pete Murray, Busby Marou). Sue-Anne Stewart has shared the stage with the likes of Ash Grunwald, Lanie Lane and Mat McHugh (The Beautiful Girls), toured Australia, Europe and Canada (incl. Calgary Stampede, Woodford Folk Festival) and launches ‘Love Gets Sweeter’ next Friday May 10th at the Footstomp Music showcase Our Band Could Be Your Life #2 – The Roots Edition at The Tempo Hotel in Brisbane’s iconic Fortitude Valley.
This ‘little ray of sunshine’ makes me feel like I’m hittin’ the surf in Byron with a light breeze, blue skies and the summer sun on my back.. now if only I knew how to surf.. Charlie don’t surf
