My new favourite band

Like two buses arriving after a long absence, I’ve been inundated with fabulous new ear-bud titillating tunes.

Currently getting a hella lotta rotation on my turntable iTunes are The Middle East, from Townsville, Queensland.  It’s all ethereal, folksy, pastoral-tinged, nautical-referencing ditties replete with liberal lashings of Sigur Rós, Fleet Foxes, Beirut, Grizzly Bear and Mercury Rev.

The music video for their track ‘Blood’ is a real animated treat.
