'Angel Blood' Mushroom.
"And the award goes to leonardo's bride !". Not a phrase you'll
be accustomed to hearing in the U.K. granted. But the Australian band recently
beat Nick Cave and Savage Garden to a prestigious 'Best Song' gong back on home
turf. And deservedly so, for the said hit 'Even When I'm Sleeping' is a classic
slab of acoustic pop balladry that walks the tight-rope between quality and
accessibility - lean over too far and you're a commercial sell-out.
Appropriately, the C.D. booklet with 'Angel Blood' features illustrations of
jolly little circus performers who would no doubt perform such a gymnastic feat
in a more literal sense.
