Recordings From The Middle East
A quick break from film reviews to give a big shout out to the debut album from the six piece Townsville band The Middle East. I'm probably a little late to the party on this one (the band has been around for a while and their album was released in May), but The Middle East is the most extraordinary Australian band I've ever heard. From the exquisite harmonic vocals to the haunting use of guitar, their sound recalls Simon and Garfunkel, The Doves and Broken Social Scene but at an almost transcendent level. This album literally took my breath away. Truly stunning.
The video clip for 'Blood' by equally incomparable Greedy Hen.
