Louis Spoils, Freida le Bjorn & Amy Alex play from 9pm FREE
Louis Spoils is the recording project of Jake Rush, a talented musician and songwriter and a friend to many, a fact that immediately leaps from the linear notes of his debut, self-titled EP. Co-produced with chum Tom Glaum who literally captured everything themselves except the drums, the five tracks contained on this stellar first effort feature a star-swollen line-up of guests who think so much of Rush, they worked on this recording alongside the man himself for little more than pizza. Old friend Wally De Backer (Gotye) plays drums on all five tracks while the likes of Kane Mazlin (Hungry Kids of Hungary), Dan Parsons, Sam Cromack (Ball Park Music), James O’Brien (The Boat People) and more all lend a hand to proceedings.
The result is stunning – a multi-faceted quintet of tunes so good, no guest could steal the spotlight from Jake Rush himself as he coolly delivers each and every line of every song with the utmost precision.
