The Middle East

This Aussie musical collective re-released their EP, The Recordings of the Middle East, after removing three of the more spacy, post-rock tunes, to give it more “focus”. Opening slots with Grizzly Bear and Doves gave the band more attention, culminating in their appearance at Australia’s Big Day Out festival.
