Small Town Soundtrack continues Brendan Ryan's exploration of place and belonging that resonate in country towns.

From the lives of farmers, abattoir workers, and dog walkers to the history of aboriginal dispossession; from a tour of the communities of the Mt Noorat Football League in Victoria's isolated Western District to moments of wonder on back country roads celebrated with gentle irony. Here is a view of the country that is both contemporary and wry.

Lyrical and rich in narrative power Small Town Soundtrack dismantles the idealized rural pastoral with an empathetic and incisive voice.
