Home to Queensland the band The Middle East popped on the Australian music scene in 2005 playing at local Christian music festivals. They had a breakup and makeup along the way and in 2011 they released there first full album “I Want That You Are Always Happy” under the label Spunk Records. First released in Australia and New Zealand then 6 months later it made it’s way to the US. This song is quite beautiful, but very sad. Definitely one to really listen to the lyrics. Be sure you have access to a box of tissues. Ahh what more can I say Folk is the heart.
Brooklyn, NY based band The Antlers was started as a solo project by Peter Silberman. Pete wrote the first two albums and for the third he brought on two new members: Michael Lerner and Darby Cicci. This song off their latest EP “Burst Apart” is a warm fire on a bitter cold day. It’s the type of song that you feel from the top of your head to the tips of your toes. The album needs to be used for one of those somewhat cheesy, yet intense love story movies that you said “Whatever that looks so dumb.” Then 2 hours later you’re sobbing on your couch with a roll of toilet paper.
This is as they say in the drug world “Addictive”. I literally played this 17 times in a row when I first heard it but now I’m down to 15 in a row(I’m in a support group). These guys are a Electro-Pop band from out of Pittsburgh and this track is from their Full length release “Formation of Tides” put out last April. This album is a Top 10′er from 2011 and needs to be in your library. C’mon, I know alot of you guys got iTunes gift cards and this band is a perfect reason to go and use it. Below is the album you will be looking for.
