Image: 1597845 The new 45 from The Cactus Channel, Cobaw, takes its name from a small town in the gold rush end of the Macedon Ranges. Scrubby forests, disused mine shafts and quiet dark lagoons border the grazing land and history hides in all the shadows. Straight out, The Cactus Channel's heavy, ominous drums and reverb-drenched guitars take this record into soundtrack land. It's not clear whether it's a road movie or a horror movie. The B-side,Fool's Gold, a warning that all is not what it seems, is a slower, thicker tune on the same tip.

The Cactus Channel are pioneers in Australian cinematic soul music, taking their cues from the likes of Menahan Street Band, Budos Band, hip hop breaks, moody scores and electronic music. Their previous vinyl releases have sold out, and this new 45 marks the beginning of a new sound and writing style for the band. Previous releases have had solid support across USA's university radio stations as well as recognition in various blogs.
