Black Swan


Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • On 1989's THE BLACK SWAN, Sydney's Triffids deploy A-list producer Stephen Street not to make a grand statement of purpose, but to depart from their indie-folk signature sound and explore sometimes radically new sonic territory. The result, which incorporates electronic drum beats and elements everything from cabaret music to hip hop, is disarmingly adventurous but never, for a moment, dull.
