"Hermeto Magnético" Bellissimo

I am well and truly behind the times with this post but, a few weeks ago I went to a concert that was completely different in the best way possible.

Hermeto Magnético were phenomenal. I loved the unusual textures they achieved by the odd ensemble. The combination of these instruments was something I had never heard before, but am looking forward to again. Three flutes, voice, guitar, bass guitar, percussion and mandolin. The amount of work they had put into their preparation for the gig was evident and boy was it worth it. 

Sidenote: The Jazzlab is a gem of a venue. Hidden away amongst the noise of Sydney St in Brunswick, it is very aesthetically pleasing along with the expected venue services.
