Australian pressing. Tim Oxley was the last in the famed North Coast musical family to strike out on his own, but he is by no means the least. His pleasurable second album has moments of funkiness, stabs at bouncy guitar pop and even a Coldplay-like journey in Radiate. He's at his best in the quieter sections such as Warm Night, a gorgeously drifting mood piece that is equal parts Ry Cooder and Elliott Smith. That minor gem is languorously followed by Where the World Goes Away, and the Smith homage Elliott, which is operatically touched and reggaefied. To get a country-folk stunner such as Johnny And June after all that is like having Christmas two days in a row. Candle. 2005.
