Blood by The Middle East

One of my favorite movies from this year was ‘Crazy, Stupid, Love.’ It was really funny, genuine, well put together, and had a great cast. I was also surprised by the quality of the soundtrack. One standout song was Blood by The Middle East, an Australian collective of very talented musicians. The combination of acoustic guitar and tender lead vocals with several added elements (various percussive instruments, xylophone, harmonizing, humming/whistling, etc.) result in a beautifully composed  product. Unfortunately, The Middle East split earlier this year, which is a real shame. Don’t be surprised to see a post for their latest studio album ‘I Want That You Are Always Happy’ in the near future.
