Justine - Wordless Songs 12"
Label: Left Ear
Mysterious Sydney songstress Justine recorded one album in 1979, which was never officially released. Left Ear have chosen two tracks here for Wordless Songs, which they feel best highlight Justine's unique vocal talents and songwriting ability. The A side features the haunting "Wordless Songs," a melancholic soulful number which according to Justine explores the "capacity to comprehend a partner's internal quest for authenticity and connection." The B side "Mama Didn't Tell Ya" is more uplifting in both tempo and arrangements, comprising an extended outro, while the lyrics remain just as personal and reflective.
