Cathy Petocz

Unearthed Review is returning after a bit of a hiatus. Rather than choosing at random and being subjected to every lonely teen who thinks he’s the next Mike Skinner we’re going to work through the acts that have earned themselves a drum logo.

Today we’re having a listen to Cathy Petocz who’s a bit of a darling with the TripleJ folk having earned reviews from Kingsmill himself and a featured interview.

Kathy has this to say about her music:

It’s a bit jazzy. I think it’s good for book-parties, or a late-night drink outside, perhaps an evening walk. It’s fairly intimate and cosy

If you like girly jazz noodling then this is the music for you. If you like Regina Spector’s slow songs then, well you like girly jazz noodling.

I think what annoys me most is that I know Kathy has a fierce brain and her lyrics are interesting, but the presentation hides her meaning from scrutiny.

It’s a beautiful voice though, and very talented piano play.

A good bet to have playing in the background when you’ve invited someone special around for dinner, but could be so much more.

Three stars.
