  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    This "real deal" physical album comes from a lover of art who has decorated the music therein. The art featured in the Brothington Album Booklet is a unique accompaniment to the album and was conceived, designed and created by the musician (Kyle Brothers). The 12 page booklet, clear jewel case, inserts, and semi gloss disc face embody the fruits of a labour of love, in photos, slick digital art and complete lyrics, so you can sing along and ponder the inner workings of this dually, mad artist/musician.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Brothington via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

about

Australian's love their rhyming slang. A meat pie and sauce is a dogs eye and a dead horse, your skyrocket is your pocket and the trouble and strife is your wife. Written in jest this is probably the only blues based song I've written.

lyrics

12. T R O U B L E A N D S T R I F E
I spend my time trying to get away from you But when you’re gone there is nothing I can do You drive me crazy And I’m a big baby You got me wrapped around your little finger That’s what trouble and strife can do Some years have passed since I fell in line with you You probably think that it’s about time that I grew Some times are a bit wavy But it’s all gravy I’ll just be careful to avoid your stinger And not attempt to stage a coup When you’re not here I’m a dog without a bone
I watch the moon like ET without a phone Your gravity saves me when I’m a bit hazy I’m neither here neither there but I’ll finally find my own way home to you Yeah I don’t think I could hoe this row alone I’ll be the glasshouse and you can throw the stones You send me crazy But I’m a bit lazy You be the bell and I’ll be the dinger And we will make this tone ring true I spend my time trying to get away from you But when you’re gone there is nothing I can do You drive me crazy And I’m a big baby You got me wrapped around your little finger Yeah you make me wanna dress like Clinger But it’s enough to wanna make me linger That’s what trouble strife can do Trouble yeah

about

Kyle Brothers Bungendore, Australia

I am an musician, artist and a teacher, specialising in teaching children to play guitar. I am based near Canberra, ACT, Australia and this is my debut release. At 17 I learned to play, becoming a songwriter when practice eventually became exploration. My music fits mostly within the Folk genre with many influences. I hope that there will be many more albums to follow as I'm writing all the time. ... more
