BLUELINE MEDIC: The Middle of the End: 7”

This Australian act gives us two songs here. One is an original tune and the other, “Let Go” is a cover of Frou Frou. You know, the song that has that line that lots of girls were putting on their MySpace pages last year: “There’s beauty in the breakdown.” Both songs sound good. The original tune, “Saw You Last Night,” has a little more energy—is upbeat and catchy as hell—while the Frou Frou cover is just a mellow pop song. Not bad, but nothing I haven’t heard before. Comes with a coupon for free MP3 downloads of both songs.
