'The Blind Side's' Quinton Aaron And Julia Stone Fall In Love In "Justine"

Julia Stone has unveiled a new video for the track “Justine” from her acclaimed solo album, By The Horns. The video, which premiered on HitFix.com (here: http://bit.ly/RaBKWe), co-stars actor Quinton Aaron of the Oscar-nominated film The Blind Side as Julia’s love interest.

Director Jessie Hill told HitFix: "I wanted give the viewer an opportunity to experience something different to the ‘normal’ images of lovers in video clips. I set out to make a video that depicted a heartfelt romance in a distant time...a love story in its purist state. My casting agent suggested Quinton, and I immediately contacted him to have a coffee. The contrast of Julia being so tiny and Quinton being a larger character was something I wanted to explore visually."

By The Horns was produced by Thomas Bartlett and Patrick Dillett, whose combined work includes credits on records by Antony & The Johnsons, David Byrne, The National and Mary J Blige. Julia has previously released two albums as one-half of the award-winning Aussie sibling duo Angus & Julia Stone (Down The Way; A Book Like This), as well one previous solo full-length (Julia Stone in The Memory Machine).

Julia Stone’s new solo effort, By The Horns, is officially in stores this week, and to celebrate, the Aussie chanteuse has released a new video for the album’s title track. In the video, which was directed by Jessie Hill and filmed deep in the jungles of tropical Asia, Julia takes the viewer on a gondola ride through mist-shrouded lakes, playing the role of a scorned goddess who has turned her unfaithful ex-lover into a goblin of the underworld, but she ends up the victim of her own creation. The video recently premièred on the KCRW Music Blog.  Watch it above. 

By The Horns was produced by Thomas Bartlett and Patrick Dillett, whose combined work includes credits on records by Antony & The Johnsons, David Byrne, The National, and Mary J Blige. The album is comprised of nine original tracks and a cover of The National’s “Bloodbuzz Ohio.” (Listen to it here: http://bit.ly/KYgX4d.)

11/9 - Julia Stone - 'The Memory Machine'

 

Following four years of critically acclaimed collaboration with brother Angus, Julia Stone's The Memory Machine marks her first foray into solo musical terrain. With the global success of the duo’s first two albums and accompanying sell out tours, Julia’s debut solo album demonstrates a musical confidence and story-telling capacity that reflects her evolution as an artist.

On The Memory Machine Julia employs the talents of a range of musicians from her musical community and undertakes production duties alongside co-producers Keiran Kelly and Brad Albetta.

Subtle, minimal arrangements show the self-assuredness that Julia has brought to this timely project and though characteristically sweet and melodious, the subjects of her stories often run to the darker side, reflected in the artwork inspired by old horror flick posters. Written and recorded over five months in a variety of locations these songs comprise a journey of their own.

Her songs can comfortably inhabit the surreal, where love is an unreliable latchkey kid (‘Where Does the Love Go?’); an internal dying fire warms the hands of grasping sycophants (‘Lights Inside this Dream’); My Baby harks back to the sweet serenades of the fifties and ‘Catastrophe’ provides a delightful romp through the disasters of clumsy connections. The title track, ‘The Memory Machine’, is a paean to lost love from a simpler era with Julia’s hushed vocal veering into dreamy longing.

Julia’s talents as a musician are evident, providing not only vocal and guitar, but also piano, bass, ukulele and percussion, though it is Julia’s characteristic and unique vocals that shine here.

The Memory Machine is an intriguing, disturbing, moving and ultimately enchanting solo debut from an accomplished and self-assured artist.
