Latest from The Cat Empire -- Two Shoes

I don't really know how to describe The Cat Empire - are they hip-hop, folk, funk, jazz, disco (!) or what? They seem to be a mix of all sorts except possibly thrash, metal and hard rock. So listening to them is quite enjoyable.

I picked up their latest album Two Shoes a few days ago and as is my habit it's now on high rotation. They've got a nasty habit though with their website of hijacking one's /dev/audio and playing a track from their album.

This is rude and obnoxious behaviour for a website.

If I want to listen to their music, I will do so when I choose to. I do not want to have it forced on me.

Anyway, the group is touring Australia at the moment. I didn't go (and haven't gone) to their shows at the Enmore Theatre - I figured that their sort of music is better suited to a place where you can get up and dance (maybe even mosh a bit). The Enmore Theatre is very much a sit down sort of place. Now maybe if they were appearing at The Metro instead....
