Recordings of the Middle East (2008)

...No, not THAT Middle East. The Middle East as in one of Australia's best bands at the moment. I thought I would start with one of my favorite Australian bands, The Middle East. Hailing from the northern reaches of Australia (unfortunately on the complete opposite side of the country than myself), they play post-rock-ish-ambient-kinda-music with a bit of fingerplucked-folky-kinda-stuff (NB; Sheesha! Music journalism is as hard as you said it would be!). They recently won the 2009 Triple J 'unearthed' award too. Good on them.


  1. eep. I screwed up the buttons. SAVE ME SHEESHA!

  2. Ah, yeah, I forgot to mention that! I usually do the coding for the buttons by hand, because Blogger likes to fuck it up.
