Together Alone

Crowded House’s “Together Alone” from 1993 remains the Antipodean musical institution’s most challenging and esoteric work, taking in previously unexplored musical accents like indigenous Polynesian chanting, quasi-ambient patterns, freeform log drumming and Celtic folk. A more ominous and atmospheric ambience is also prevalent on this landmark record, which would be the band’s last album until their reformation this year. Check out some revealing insights into the making of this magnum opus, including interviews with members of the band and maverick producer Youth, with the first part viewable here, and the second part here.
