Yet another reason added to the list of why I want to make it to this part of the world: the band The Middle East. Mike literally just turned me on to them this morning and it’s love at first listen AND sight. Their video for Blood takes you on a whimsical and artistic animated journey through the beautiful lyrics.

And definitely take a listen to some of their other tunes, they’ve got sort of a Fleet Foxes tone but with a bit more grit (and orchestration) perhaps. Their next album is scheduled for release on July 12.

Happy Tuesday!
