Following on from her brother’s solo album, Australian singer-songwriter Julia Stone has released her own debut album, The Memory Machine. The songs were all written in New York last year while she was in between Angus & Julia Stone tours. These songs could easily have appeared one of the duo’s album. However, having only Julia Stone’s voice inevitably leaves it sounding more pared back and, in keeping with the album cover art, it also has a darker sound than the brother-sister act does.
