The Cannanes’ 1989 LP ‘A Love Affair with Nature’ getting deluxe picture disc reissue (listen)


Australian indie rock vets The Cannanes have been together since 1984 developing a cult following thanks to tender, heart-on-sleeve lyrics and shambolic charm. The band’s 1989 album A Love Affair With Nature is a great place to start, full of memorable melodies and that just-woke-up romanticism. Core members David Nichols (drums), Stephen O’Neil (guitar) and vocalist Fran Gibson all contributed great songs. Kurt Cobain was a fan, and if you like Belle & Sebastian, The Go-Betweens and Beat Happening, you should check this out.

You can do just that as A Love Affair With Nature is being reissued by Chapter Music on September 16 on picture disc vinyl, and the digital download comes with 13 bonus tracks. A digital-only version will be available too. We’ve got the premiere of “Vivienne”:
