Saw it as a recommendation on Amazon and listened to a track on Youtube (highly recommended to listen before you buy) and I just melted instantly into a puddle of joy listening to such great music.
If you like The Shins (great band by the way) then The Middle East are best described as a more acoustic and darker version of them. They transgress boundaries like The Shins and defy any description I can write here on Amazon. The opening track is hauntingly beautiful, but the best track to look up on Youtube is "As I go to see Janey". Listen to that track and then buy the album. Not all the tracks are like that one, but it is an accessible track that will give you a good idea of the band's style and beauty. It is the best album I have brought for a long time!
Taste and preference for genres and bands is all well and good... but try something new like this and you won't regret it.
Heard a rumour this band may have stopped being a band and making music! :-O
Fleeting moment of sheer brillance across an album. Buy it and enjoy, it might be their only album.
But the Middle East are no mere copyists of any band and in large parts of this album they pare a little niche which is all theirs. To be sure before purchasing this album you may wish to check their previous LP "Recordings of the Middle East" and in particular the tracks "The darkest side" and the pop sensation that is the song "Blood" which has started to figure on a range of film soundtracks. You will also then understand that this album sees the band moving systematically into new pastures and "I want that you are always happy" is an album, which has real spiritual depth and dazzling songs. Check out the haunting "As I go I see Janey" with a melody forever destined to be tattooed on your brain. The gentle and sparse opener "Black death 1349' harks back to "After the Goldrush" preoccupations and repays repeated listens. So to does the solemnity of the ghostly piano ballad that follows it "My grandmother was Pearl Hall" which matches any of the shivering inducing atmospherics on the Low Anthem's recent "Smart flesh". More upbeat is the cracking folk song "Land of the bloody unknowns" which does have a slightly Australian feel amidst its broad stream of alt country, while in broad terms the most upbeat offering is ironically the adorable "Hunger Song" .Read more ›
