Album of the Week: Baker Boy – Gela (2021 LP)

It may have taken him a while, but the Fresh Prince of Arnhem Land has come through with the goods. Since bursting on to the scene in 2017 with “Cloud 9”, Baker Boy has slowly but surely pieced together a debut album that highlights the dance beats he’s become known for, willingness to indulge modern music and pay respects to his ancestors, while putting at the forefront of each song his ability to perform in both his native tongue and English. The former Young Australian of the Year, Baker Boy has been ever-reliable in releasing catchy pop songs that the public has flocked to en masse. Here on his debut album, Gela, this has not changed.

Baker Boy: ‘I wanted to show those kids back in community that they can succeed’

When Danzal Baker landed at the airport in Arnhem Land two years ago, the first things he saw were the signs. “They said ‘Welcome home Danzal Baker AKA Baker Boy!’” he laughs. After years of touring his infectious and innovative hip-hop music around the country and the world – on festival lineups, headline tours, and as support for artists including Dizzee Rascal, 50 Cent and Yothu Yindi – Baker was home again. In the time away, he’d become something of a local hero.

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.
