The Rubens- The Rubens (Album)



One of two big Sydney/NSW album releases today (the other being Regular John, but more on that later) The Rubens' self-titled debut is a catchy and at times grand affair. It's been a meteoric rise for these guys, from hand-delivering demos around town to having a big old embargo sticker on advance copies of their album. Their bluesy-guitar tones and lovestruck lyrics aren't exactly groundbreaking but hearing those earlier recordings given the full studio treatment that hardly seems to matter.
