‘Everybody Loves Somebody’ is a stunning musical exposition that raises more questions than it answers. diMattina says “We are poking a stick at various notions of ‘love’ and devotion.. ‘Baby Won’t You Cook For Me’ is all sweaty salty sweet salaciousness. ‘Change It Up’ ‘s jungle drums are a war cry for personal and social transformation, and ‘Ahee’ is a sea-faring ode to the hermetic journey. For me, La Vie En Rose is that romantic haze of endless giving and expansion… but then ‘Love is Lonely’ is a cry from the chasm – when you’ve given your heart, and it disappears down a black hole.. We had to end with The Acorn Song because that’s the future hope..”
With her oeuvre ever growing, there’s plenty of future hope for fans of this gem of the Australian jazz/roots scene.
