Lovesong: My Friend the Chocolate Cake: The Centre Cannot Hold
They're called 'My Friend the Chocolate Cake'.
They are Melbourne based and produce acoustic songs that are involving and invariably beautiful.
Dave also has a solo career (more of that in a later 'Lovesong' post) and writes film music also.
Choosing a song is difficult so I'll post the latest thing I can find and something from way back.
The new song is 'The Centre Cannot Hold' from the new album 'Fiasco'.
The older is 'Talk About Love' which I've chosen for no other reason than it's (kind of) nicked the title from Raymond Carver (I'd never do such a thing...) Oh, and it's a lovely thing also...
They are another one of those 'criminally underrated' bands.
They must be sick of hearing that...
Listen to everything and anything by MFTCC, a good entry point might be their retrospective 'Review' which you can buy here on Amazon for £1.99... crazy times.
