[mp3] Meursault - "Nothing Broke"

One of my very late finds in 2008 was Meursault’s Pissing On Bonfires/Kissing With Tongues - a sparkling, passionate blend of acoustic strumming, electronic wizardry, and howling, Scottish-accented vocals. I fell for it right away, and had I discovered it prior to mid-December and actually lived with the record for a while it would have likely ended up in my Top 20 of the year.

2009 finds the band keeping busy, with the impending release of a brand new EP. Nothing Broke will once again be birthed to the world via the Song, By Toad blog/label, and, until July, is only available there or at Meursault shows. Matthew over at the label describes the EP as ‘morose, barring the pop gem “William Henry Miller Pt.1”, but I love sad music, so there you go’. He's underselling a bit. Check out he warm, lo-fi sounds of the banjo/piano led title track below.
