Following the release of a new album, national tour and the receipt of one of the most prestigious awards for songwriters, what more fitting way to close out the year for Laneway than releasing their sophomore album on vinyl and touring on the brink of the festive season? The limited edition 100-record release of this year’s Turn Your Love Up has been hand packaged with tenderness, simplicity and handiness – all qualities associated with the sounds we’ve come to know and love from Laneway – and it’s available just in time for the holidays.

The album was released through Crawler Records in August and the songwriting duo of Louise O’Reilly and Paul Hannan were promptly awarded the highest honour in Queensland’s music scene, The Grant McLennan Memorial Fellowship. The opportunity affords them the chance to travel to Berlin in 2013 where they will write, perform and record in one of McLennan’s much-loved cities.

Before leaving, though, they have to hit the road once more in Australia for the Vinyl & Wine tour and the special release of records. The shows build on the national album-release tour in September of this year that saw Laneway play some of the country’s most intimate and beautiful venues.

Turn Your Love Up is a superb collection of 10 songs displaying sublime vocals, floating harmonies, striking and roomy guitars and strong, diverse compositions. The album was recorded in a number of studios in southeast Queensland and northern New South Wales, including a tracking week in a wooden dwelling in the rainforest at Natural Bridge where O’Reilly and Hannan call home. Matt Redlich, Fingers Malone, Jordan Power and Steve Fraser all added their input with engineering and production and a bunch of talented musicians feature on the songs.

Catch Louise and Paul, before they head off again, at the Sphinx Rock Cafe on Sunday.
