SJD Elastic Wasteland

Since the last SJD album in 2008 prolific songwriter Sean Donnelly joined Neil Finn's Pyjama Club, and formed The Bellbirds, with Don McGlashan, Sandy Mill and Victoria Kelly. For a few months there he was writing and recording a song a day in the hope that he'd strike pop gold, but as those other projects cooled off he found himself strapped to his synth inside his home studio in Titirangi, on the outskirts of West Auckland. As music reporter Nick Atkinson found out the result is a new SJD record Elastic Wasteland.
