BSWC One-a-Day: Mr. Wednesday - The Cargo Doors Have Requested Our Cooperation

Just like me to post a song by a band called Mr. Wednesday on a Tuesday but, Subsystem is posting on Wednesday this week and I didn't want to delay.

These guys are from Adelaide, South Australia and the tune is featured on the latest Silent Ballet: Volume 3 compilation that was released on February 7th on the netlabel, Lost Children. Today's selection is from a Mr. Wednesday release called The Garden Where Parties Grow and was released this past December in Australia.

Mr. Wednesday is a pretty big ensemble and their sounds are pretty big, but with a understated, laid-back kind of style. The players include: Moon -Vocals; Dunc - Keys/Samples/Bass; Eamon - Guitar; Mano - Drums/Percussion; Luke - Bass/Trumpet; Felicity - Cello; Lucy - Violin; Ishan - Viola; and Levon - Visuals.

The release notes describe their approach:
"As an (expandable) five piece, Mr Wednesday peels back the veneer of the 9 to 5 grind - channelling the well trodden pavement, the bone white fluorescence and the cacophony of souls trapped in ever shrinking micromanaged spaces; to reveal the soft beating beauty that still dwells within us all."

Enjoy our tune of the day. Oh, and if you are in Adelaide on March 18th Mr. Wednesday is playing at the Crown and Anchor Hotel at 8:00 pm.
