Bonfire Records present a reissue of Extradition's Hush, originally released in 1971. Little is known about this long-lost gem coming from the outskirts of the Commonwealth. But beauty lies inside. That is the case of the sole album of mysterious Australian band Extradition. Released in a small run on local independent label Sweet Peach in 1971, the album stands as one of the most accurate acid folk renditions outside the UK realm. Formerly a three-piece, Extradition struggle on their personal behavior forging a rural set up that pursue the "think green" revolution. It could be the English folk revival or the West Coast flower power, but the album introduces a different state of mind, far away from the chaotic suburbs of the counter culture. Lost on the isle, the acoustic set up of the band brings joy and happiness, a new age that reflects the multiple essence of the four elements. While the opener "A Water Song" brings to mind the course of a small river, "A Love Song" sets the mood for a long lost medieval folk tale. Acoustic guitar, small percussion, natural found sound and the celestial voice of Shayna Carlin (also member of cult band Tully, a weirdo surf-psychedelic affair) all of the elements above literally conjure for an ambient album before the definition was fully embraced by a massive audience.
