Since disbanding Snout, McLennan has made three unfailingly excellent solo albums and been shortlisted for the Amp (Australian Music Prize). Accompanied by his ensemble of strings, woodwind and a choir, Ross McLennan has manifested magical performances at Melbourne Festival, Brisbane Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival, Brisbane Powerhouse and the Famous Spiegeltent, and supported artists such as Cass McCombs and Matthew E.

The Night’s Deeds Are Vapour by Ross McLennan




MIST060 THE NIGHT’S DEEDS ARE VAPOUR by ROSS MCLENNAN

 

Aptly described as a “chamber rock auteur”, Ross McLennan has earned the highest accolades for his solo career since disbanding Snout, one of a few Australian indie pop bands from the 1990s who are remembered both for their popularity and their creative depth. A revered songwriter, Ross creates intriguing daydream sequences in his music whilst engaging deeply with the most vexed and heartbreaking issues of our time. Five years in the making, The Night’s Deeds Are Vapour is sublime.

“By name and mercurial nature,
The Night’s Deeds are Vapour is about the thrilling transience of impulses and ideas, from eerie woodwind that slides around tonal certainty to lyrics seemingly on their own journey of discovery moment by moment”THE AGE

Sympathy for the New World by Ross McLennan




MIST015 SYMPATHY FOR THE NEW WORLD by ROSS MCLENNAN

 

Sympathy for the New World is the Australian Music Prize-shortlisted album by Melbourne’s home recording pop pundit, Ross McLennan. This stunning record charts Ross’s dizzying artistic progress following his post-Snout solo debut Hits From The Brittle Building. Written and recorded entirely in his home studio in the quietude of an inner-north Melbourne suburb, Sympathy for the New World is an accomplished production. A dozen finely crafted songs open up labyrinthine worlds of meaning, association and possibilities with every listen.

Ross McLennan excels with this stream of musical consciousness, forging a new strain of languid psychedelia from off-kilter strings and spidery guitars, all spilling harmonic colours outside the lines” – THE AGE
