POP: Quirky, POP: with Live-band Production
"Nervous Breakthroughs" is the highly anticipated
second album recorded by Peccadillo, the Sydney-based
chamber pop band formed by Greta Gertler; the major
outlet for her early songwriting and performance.
Peccadillo is a wood and string concoction that fuses
classical, pop and jazz sensibilities. It emerged as
one of the more critically-acclaimed Australian acts
from the mid-90s piano-based pop movement (comparable
artists include Rufus Wainwright, Penguin Café
Orchestra, Belle & Sebastian and Melanie Oxley/Chris
Abrahams). "Nervous Breakthroughs" captures the
five-piece band at its peak, occasionally enlarged by
woodwinds, electric guitar and percussion.
The basic tracks of the album were recorded by
legendary engineer Michael Stavrou (Stevie Wonder,
Elton John, The Pretenders) at Paradise Studios,
Sydney in 1998. In early 2004, Greta completed the tracking
with Damian Press (The Fragments) and mixed the album
in New York with Noah Simon (Neil Finn, Suzanne Vega)
at Jarvis Studios. The album features an all-Australian line-up of musicians.

Miller, though with the country inflections repaced by

"There's a touch of Katie Noonan in Gertler when she
hits those wispy, ethereal higher notes"

"Greta presents both a sense of innocence in her voice
and maturity in her songwriting"
