The Australian Evangelist

The Go-Betweens were one of the classiest, most literate new wave combos of the 1980s. The Australian act was led by Grant McLennan and Robert Forster, who combined plaintive vocals, droll wordplay, and achingly pretty melodies. The Go-Bs were around on and off until '06, when McLennan died suddenly. Forster's first solo disc in a decade — and since McLennan's passing — is The Evangelist, a somber yet exquisite affair, the music like an imaginary collaboration between Paul McCartney and Leonard Cohen. It's the ideal soundtrack for moods you don't want to be cheered out of.
