Baker Boy, Hiatus Kaiyote, Montaigne and others: Australia’s best new music for April

For fans of: Liam Finn, Elliott Smith, Courtney Barnett. Phil Jamieson, like many Australian musicians who came to prominence in the 90s, had his biggest sales success with music he made as a teenager. Since then he has released seven Grinspoon albums, fronted supergroups who covered the Beatles and the Easybeats, and even took a role in the musical version of Green Day’s American Idiot, settling into “elder statesman of rock” mode before scraping middle age. Yet it has taken until now for Jamieson to release any solo material. Rubberband is the flipside to February’s Kapow!, and the more commercial of the songs. A gentle, rhythmic song in which Jamieson’s voice never rises above a croaky whisper, this is a far cry from the distortion and big choruses of Grinspoon, and nicely sets Jamieson up as an introspective songwriter á la Neil Finn. A simple, heartfelt song.
