SEEKER LOVER KEEPER: Seeker Lover Keeper. The result of a collaboration of three female songwriters - Sarah Blasko, Sally Seltmann and Holly Throsby - have indulged themselves in their own craftily spun hush soundscape. It's never going to get that loud or exciting and you need to keep an eye on the lyrics that muse on the very nature of life itself from birth to death. They're clearly deeply into the music they've made together but it's not going to transcend to mass appeal. The more fleet-footed moments such as Even Though I'm A Woman and the fragile Rely On Me strike a chord but others quickly fade well before they've even finished.
CATHY JORDAN: All The Way Home. One for the folkies as Cathy - a long-time member of multi award-winning Irish band Dervish - has the perfect folk voice as she joins with several acclaimed musicians to bestow a delicate hue on four new songs and a host of traditional Irish folk songs. An album of absolute clarity.
