veruncheek I am a big fan of the 2009 album "Your Anniversary", it is a masterpiece. This EP is amazing. I am looking forward to your future recordings, projects and collabs. Favorite track: Sleep Doesn't Come.

Nicole Venezia You know that sense of empowerment that we all feel while listening to Beyonce? That's what listening to King of Kong is like. What a JAM. Favorite track: King of Kong.

Nicholas Leach I honestly couldn't say I have a favorite track.. But I love this song because, while it has a sense of personal struggle, it also has the sense of overcoming it.. It's like the gravity of the earth.. The same thing that brings us down is needed for us to stand tall. Favorite track: Steely Dan.

    2015 sees Elana Stone release the first half of 'Kintsugi' - her third studio album.

    'Kintsugi' - a Japanese word meaning 'golden joinery' - is the art of fixing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. As a philosophy it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise. In other words, it glorifies the cracks.
    'Stomping electro-pop, dappled with vocal longing and classic rock melodrama'. Brag magazine

    'Dear god, her voice is downright incredible. Every song she performed drew pin-drop silence during and wild applause after.' Time Out Sydney

    'One of the best singing voices in the country' The Age

    Elana's genre shape-shifting has led to collaborations with the likes of Passenger, Washington, Donny Benet, Urthboy, Hermitude, Tripod, Josh Pyke and Ngaiire among many others. Her unique and enchanting live performances have served to make her one of Australia's most sought after vocalists. Since her previous band 'The Rescue Ships' parted ways Elana has spent the better part of the last two years touring with her four-part lady folk band 'All Our Exes Live in Texas' to sell out crowds around Australia while continuing to write and perform as a solo artist.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Kintsugi via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
