Augie March

Strange Bird is the second studio album by the Australian indie rock band Augie March.

A more concise record than the epic ‘Sunset Studies’, ‘Strange Bird’ still manages to cover more sonic terrain. It veers from the sweet, building harmony of ‘The Vineyard’, through the Wild West gallop of ‘This Train’, the heavy ‘Song in the Key of Chance’ and muted melancholy of ‘O Mi Sol Li Lon’ to the plaintive balladry of ‘The Night is A Blackbird’, and that’s all in the first half hour!

Like its predecessor, ‘Strange Bird’ includes two tracks recorded by the band themselves (‘O Mi Sol Li Lon’ and ‘Sunstroke House’), originally meant as demos but which ended up making the grade. The album was recorded at Sing Sing in Melbourne with Chris Thompson, and in Sydney at Megaphon with Paul McKercher and Big Jesusburger with Chris Townend respectively.
