Weekly MP3 #179: Mount Pleasant - II Tough II Dance

Mount Pleasant playing live and looking quite serious

I stumbled upon this track back in February, browsing "New Zealand" tagged stuff on Bandcamp. I was instantly hooked and am happy to report the album that followed, 'The Aztecs', is one of my definite faves of the year so far. And this track is one of four great songs available for free from that release. This is the most dancey, least moody track, I suppose.

As well as the Mount Pleasant Bandcamp and Facebook pages, New Zealander Jonathan Philips maintains a funny, roaming blog. There's hours more much rougher Mt Pleasant stuff available in the sidebar of the blog.
