The Woodland Hunters launched their fourth album, Small Mercies with much aplomb to an adoring audience at The Union Hotel in Brunswick (Melbourne/naarm) on Saturday evening.
Making their way through two sets, the band played the album in its’ entirety before finishing up in the second set with a treasure trove of songs from their highly accomplished back-catalogue.
The interplay of the guitars, led by the fine playing of Ross Richard and beautifully embellished by the Telecaster of frontman/singer, Andrew Tanner, was a hallmark of the show, with Leroy Cope providing the ever steady backbeat on the drums and Cam Prestipino snaking his way around the fretboard on bass.
Support was ably lent by fellow locals, Riflebirds, who warmed the crowd up beautifully, thrilling them with a set full of their upbeat psychedelic pop-rock and dynamic stage presence.
