Moo, You Bloody Choir (2006)
Augie March apparently took the Australian music industry by surprise when they won album of the year and I'm not sure the album manages sustained excellence so much as a couple real high points and intermittent neat turns of phrase. But just give a listen to its signature song, One Crowded Hour, and it's hard to imagine any band recorded a better one.
I don't know about you, but it reminds me an awful lot of Jeff Buckley. No small compliment.
