Rolling Stone have called Sal Kimber and The Rollin’ Wheel ‘Australiana-soaked alt-country at its finestThe Wheel have just released a new album produced by Shane O’Mara (Tim Rogers, The Audreys) and are touring it nationally at the moment.

The Rollin’ Wheel was formed in 2008 with older sister Beth Kimber, Jacob Cole, Cat Leahy and Trent McKenzie. Since then they’ve performed extensively across the country including Port Fairy Folk Festival, The National Folk Festival and Blue Mountains Music Festival and last year they toured Canada.

Last week, Evan Hughes interviewed Sal for the Timber and Steel blog (here) including a review of the album. You can get a signed copy of it from JB HI-FI or meet the gorgeous people in person and hear a rocking show!

Saturday 29th October at the Camelot lounge! 19 Marrickville Rd, Marrickville (corner of – and heaps of parking on – Railway Pde, Marrickville) Directly opposite Sydenham Train Station, a short 2 min stroll away.

Since I’m yet to get my hands on the new album, my favourite track is still Sounds Like Thunder
