Augie March Do Craig Ferguson For “One Crowded Hour”

Been none too shy about our love for Aussie/Kiwi literate pop-noir rockers Augie March (and their stellar sophomore release Moo, You Bloody Choir) around here, and last week the band got to flex its Saul Bellows-indebted dynamics for a national audience on Craig Ferguson’s show (a questionably sized national audience as it was, after all, Craig Ferguson … but still). Glenn’s Grant-Lee tenor is, as always, Augie’s anchor, but “One Crowded Hour” kills on multiple levels. Sadly missing the gospel choir background vocals, but Ferguson’s “moo” trigger (what?) is punctuation enough.

Catch Augie’s march around North America with Andrew Bird and Aliens — dates after the jump.
