Reece Morrow is from The Riviera of the South and is one half of Set Piece, an Australian based Film Catering Co, currently projects include Pirates of the Caribbean and The Voice 5. Set Piece has spread the love recently for cafe extravaganza and Two & Twelve in Bondi for smoked goodness and top shelf drinks and sounds. Here are five albums he’s loving right now…
1 – Jesse Fuller, Jesse Fuller’s Favourites: Since I discovered this guy (yesterday) I have been listening to this album non-stop. I came across this when looking for an Uncut compilation album from Keith Richards called Devils Music this afternoon. I won’t pretend to know anything about him, but a great laid back little bit of 50s-60s American action that everyone could do with.
2 – Songs, Malabar: Their self-titled album from a few years back was being labelled by the local station as “the sound of summer”, and I had to agree. And I love summer. It was strangely familiar, reminded me of some NZ stuff from a few years back. But this one I think has trumped it. Track 2: Boy/Girl. Go get some, this summer.
3 – Roxy Music, Avalon: With a heap of silent super 8 film showing Timaru (and our family) in its infancy being unearthed, my Father was tasked with giving it a soundtrack. Should have gone very bad, but somehow the Avalon cassette was pulled from the drawer and I have loved it on a regular basis since. Haunting, sad and beautiful with an album cover to match. Not to mention the film.
4 – The Cars, The Cars’ Greatest Hits: I’ve been called a car enthusiast before. I do love the Cars, as in, love the Greatest hits album. I have a few albums of theirs but really only reach for this one, At work it gets played way more than it should. This album means great times, good, honest, (mostly clean) fun.
5 – Kurt Vile, Smoke Ring For My Halo: Over the last three years I haven’t been able to get enough of Kurt Vile. It started with this album, still a weekly go to. So subtle, no frills, I picture him singing in black and white. Possibly lying on a couch.
