With Robert Forster off on his publicity tour for Grant & I, reviewed on here a week or so, it seems fitting to post a few songs from a band with a Go Betweens connection. French duo Part Company take their name from one of Forster's finest songs, the closing track of the first side of Spring Hill Fair.
Their debut, Seasons, (released earlier this year), is light, airy, melodic and diverting, as fresh as the Alpine air where it was recorded in the band's home recording studio. Reminiscent of Vampire Weekend more than anything else, of whom Forster is a stated fan. Ten, crafted, floating chamber pop songs. It's a lesson in what focused, driven ambition can achieve in this day and age.
