Jon Epwort 

Turn Off Your Name (Leutonia Records)

The music industry's dying, but the music is doing just fine. In the battle between gimmick and pure talent, it's the latter that Jon Epworth fights with. Despite mastering almost every talent musically and technologically, it's Epworth's voice and thoughts that are exposed in the spotlight. The soul-rocker's lyrics read as poetry out of context and his voice ranges from a Bon Scott wail to a serene Thom Yorke mumble. On "Passing Chords" he sings: "I'm a small cog on a smaller set of gears and perhaps we'll reach a few handfuls of ears." Turn Off Your Name deserves more than a few handfuls.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
