This week’s Song of the Week “Sometime Around Midnight” is from LA band ‘The Airborne Toxic Event’. The track has been out for awhile, but the band is starting to get some real traction with the release of their debut album earlier this month and appearances on TV (Conan O’Brien) and at festivals (Virgin Vfest and SXSW).

The orchestration is very cool, the mood of the piece is Wallflowers-sombre, and even though this is a very long track it continues to build throughout. This is a track you can listen to many times without losing interest.

Here’s a live version courtesy YouTube. The acoustics aren’t nearly as good as the studio version, so check that out on Myspace or their website, and I’ll publish an official video as soon as it is released:
