Named for the 1953 Saul Bellow novel The Adventures of Augie March, the wry and winsome pop band Augie March has spent the last decade winning loyal fans in its native Australia. An English major and avid poetry fan, singer Glenn Richards has been widely praised for his distinctively smart lyrics — most recently on Augie March's third album, Moo, You Bloody Choir.

The 2001 death of keyboardist Rob Dawson helped lend a degree of depth and melancholy to Augie March's sound; the album that followed, 2002's Strange Bird, spanned a broad array of emotions and instrumentations. Moo, You Bloody Choir, the follow-up, just came out here. Elegant and refined, its subtly epic sound makes it a strong candidate for sleeper success.
