Follow The Sun compiles twenty cuts dug from dusty bins by Mikey Young (Total Control,
Eddy Current Suppression Ring) and Keith Abrahamsson (Founder / Head of A&R at
Anthology Recordings and Mexican Summer) surveying the sought after sound of Australia's
lesser - and greater - known moments of '70s rock, folk, and their in-between offspring.
Follow The Sun filters the sublime and sometimes subversive psychedelic airwaves
transmitted around the world from America's terrestrial platforms during the golden age of
gentle, exploratory FM through a distinctly Australian lens.
Follow The Sun does not represent those Australian acts who produced a number one
single leading to international fame and fortune. Some of the artists on the compilation never
even made the local hit parade. But the fact that many of these artists didn't enjoy chart
success is secondary; these artists represent the consciousness of their time.
The scuffed shuffle of Mata Hari's "Easy" drastically contrasts the loner vibes of Gary
Shearston's "Witnessing," while Megan Sue Hicks "Hey, Can You Come Out And Play"
hypnotizes a la Shocking Blue and Trevor McNamara's "Country Corn" spins out like a rural
Skip Spence tune. Hailing from distant, disparate cities across the wide Australian map, each
of these artists represent distinct, different forms of pop music.
