Jesus Came to My Birthday Party

Analogue era musicians Midnight Oil proved that fans don't have to understand all the words in order to enjoy the music. And so I find myself enthralled and intrigued by the moving music and sometimes indiscernable lyrics on the latest long player from another Aussie band The Middle East titled "I Want That You Are Always Happy".
The tunes range from the melodic to the maudlin to the mysterious, but always interesting and moving. For a taste download track 4 combining controlled fuzzy distortion with whimsical lyrics like:
"Jesus came to my 
birthday party when I
was seventeen
It was a long time ago"
The Middle East 2011
