The Mime Set – ‘Northern Boy’

Listen to

One of the most promising indie releases of ’08 so far, I’ve Only Ever Lived In Rivertowns is the multifaceted and diverse debut album from Melbourne indie-artsters The Mime Set. On a seven-track album that’s filled with mostly dark, austere, jangy-guitar driven numbers, overdriven opener ‘Northern Boy’ is one of the rockier numbers of the seven, recalling The Dirty Three and Polly Jean Harvey in her more aggressive moments. Frontwoman Sam Wareing’s tensile voice sits somewhere between Kristen Hersh and Chrissie Amphlett.
