2011 has begun beautifully for us here at Soft Records. Following on from the boon of having Deviant Nature, Album Of The Week on FBi and 2SER, the album has been a Top 20, a Top Pick, it’s been playlisted and highly praised from radio around the country.
4ZZZ had this to say: “Having already been made feature album across a number of stations I thought we better pay more attention to the strangely psychedelic sounds floating out of Kevin Purdy’s corner of the world. Unsurprisingly it was well worth the effort. From cute slices of psych-pop to full blown prog epics, Deviant Nature is intricately detailed and lushly executed. In a time where a lot of mind-bending music gets put out, and a lot of it is very good, Purdy is some of the best”
Tim Ritchie announced on his program Sound Quality, “I’m pleased to say, this is a winner, I think it’s a winner record”
Paul Gough of Radio National’s Quiet Space and FBi’s Paul’s Playlunch voted the album #2 in his Top 20 for 2010.
On top of that Purdy has appeared on the Sound Lab on Triple J and the Night Air Live, with Brent Clough on Radio National, as well as a recieving fine review in Spectrum by Bernard Zuel, and it’s only been out for a matter of weeks.
