Fact one: Australia’s Augie March purloined their name from a Saul Bellows novel. Fact two: Their 2004 album Strange Bird has heavily occupied my stereo of late in anticipation of the Stateside release of their latest album Moo, You Bloody Choir (import). This Australian indie act deftly forges folk-pop tunes pretty enough to almost make you forget the melancholy that resides just beneath the surface. I will forego other artist comparisons and let the tracks speak for themselves. Expect a review of the Moo, You Bloody Choir advance in the near future.
