The latest release from the Locust cannon (Locust 76) is the LP, The Secret Miracle Fountain, by Function. Based on the tracks I've heard from the release, this is a must own. Function is the communally based band headed up by Australian native Matt Nicholson. The Secret Miracle Fountain is a "lush & transcendental rock album" recorded in over 10 countries during a 3 1/2 year period. Ambient sounds mixed with subtle vocals makes for a nice blend of other-worldy folkish post-rock that feels so organic it hurts. Function is definitely a band to keep your eye on.
