Loitered Lens: Joel Sarakula [Pics]

Hipster Folk and laid back dirt rave, gypsy funk with a grow-mo pomo comb-over… 

Vicariously talented wunderkind Joel Sarakula has been a collectors item  for a number of years through his Australian-only hard-to-find internet releases. His approach to folk music is at once simplistic and basic however it also meanders thoughtfully in the hinterland between those two radical states with apparent disregard for fashion. Joel Sarakula October 2011

…and it is here on eve of controversy that we can investigate further. Also: 'nose'.  

It's often when an artist truly lets go of the pretension of musical commonality and just wears whatever's in last season's closet that the emotional loyalty card can finally be redeemed. On this particular performance Joel really let it loose, sweeping front to back through musical ages; Stripes and Bowie, whiffs of Pop cheese with Medway's intent. All the finery, gold and shadow came to play across the velvet floor. Bohemian indeed.
