Augie March

Our friends at Filter have returned. They bear prizes regarding Augie March. Read on for more info:

“In keeping with songwriter Glenn Richards’ background as an English major, they make literate, studied music richly adorned with unexpected turns of phrase, both lyrical and musical.” – Pitchfork

“…they create music so beautiful and bursting with emotion that, after hearing it just a few times, it’s impossible to ignore.” – PopMatters

Fresh from their acclaimed U.S. showcase dates, Augie March continued their winning streak last week in Melbourne at the 25th Annual Australian Music Awards with 33,000 members voting “One Crowded Hour” as Song Of The Year, as well as Glenn Richards picking up the award for Breakthrough Songwriter Of The Year.

Rumor has it the band will return to our shores in August, just in time for the release of Moo, You Bloody Choir which hits stateside August 7th from Jive/Zomba. Until then check out the MP3 and video of this year’s best song from down under after the break.

“One Crowded Hour” – find the MP3 here.
