The Acapelicans

Acapelicans combined voice pays a unique homage to the wonderous mystery of music through the dynamic possibilities of harmony in a repertoire of songs that are pure, evocative and challenging. As the name suggests, the music is 3 voices without instruments. The simplicity and honesty of Acapelicans approach, coupled with the talent of the individuals involved, combines to an often sublime effect which crosses the boundries of age, language and musical taste.


Little Mountains

Little Mountains
Is It Ok If I Call You Mine?
A Dress Made of Rubies
Don't Give Up
For A Short Time

The third CD by a group described by a Rolling Stone reviewer as the "best a cappella trio in Australia," "little mountains" is a sign of growing poise and maturity in this, the 8th year since the group got together. It is an eclectic collection of familiar and original songs with a unique sassiness and edgy beat. Sarah Liversidge, Simon Nugent and Carl Pannuzzo's sound is understated, often moody, with laid-back vocal percussion and a self-assured style that vaguely reminds us of a worried Bobby McFerrin. Inadequate attempts to describe them aside, let us say that there are 6 songs here, the title tune, "Is It Okay If I Call You Mine?," "Tumble," "A Dress Made Of Rubies," Peter Gabriel's "Don't Give Up" and M. Thomas' "For A Short Time." The last two are the only songs familiar to us, and the dark tone of "Don't Give Up" (like a lot of Gabriel's music) fits the Acapelicans like a glove. Envelope-pushing a cappella that is gaining this group a lot of attention!
