CD Review: Steve Kilbey – Painkiller & Marty Willson-Piper – Nightjar (Second Motion Records )

painkiller-webnightjar-webThe media keeps reminding us that in times of economic trouble people always return to the church for comfort to ease their and to provide them with hope for better times ahead. How fitting then, that after quite a few years the members of The Church are returning in this time of economic and music business upheaval to bless us not only with hope of a great album ahead from the band but also to provide us with solo albums from Marty Willson-Piper and Steve Kilbey to tide us over until the band’s first album in years has been completed. Needless to say, listening to them not only whetted my appetite to hear The Church’s upcoming release but has also provided a great opportunity to get reacquainted with what these two talented musicians and songwriters bring to the table.

For one thing, Kilbey and Willson-Piper never stop creating great music, no matter the name of their various projects.
