about

"It's business as usual for The Stress of Leisure: wonderfully crafted, esoteric rock tunes, all grounded in the (relatively) fresh mythological territory of Brisbane, Australia and all delivered with Ian Powne's distinctive, anxious voice - somewhere between Roberts Smith and Forster. Throughout the album Powne filters his observations into acutely realised vignettes that often reveal a devastating core of bleak existential angst. Ultimately however this is an uplifting album. Fans of the Flying Nun label, Guided By Voices and Brisbane's own Dollar Bar will find much to love here. Soft Approach is a truly amazing album from a woefully under-appreciated band." - Ben Salter (Time Off)
