Michael Waugh kindly recorded introductions for the songs on his second album The Weir for an earlier episode of And This One's Introduced by. Micheal Waugh is back with The Cast, his 4th album which was recorded after a time of loss and heartbreak.
It's a deeply personal album that's dark, harrowing, and distinctly Australian - but ultimately healing.
Produced again by Shane Nicholson who not only recorded, engineered and mixed the album, he also played at least 17 instruments.
Says Waugh of the making of the Cast, "While I really missed touring and making music with my friends, I needed to be still after losing Mum and Dad - to reflect, to write and to be surrounded by my family. Being isolated in lockdown was a little like having a broken arm stuck inside a cast - it was frustrating and was itching to get out, but ultimately it's what I needed so that I could put myself back together again".
And This One's Introduced By... is presented by Paul Elliott and Michael Waugh is here to to introduce The Cast on Planet X on 3cr.
