I Want To Learn The Accordion

That's the only thing I'm thinking after listening to Electrelane's "Eight Steps"... except I actually want to learn to play the harmonium, because that's the instrument being played on the track. Or is it the melodica? I have trouble distinguishing them sometimes/always. Who knows, I'm certainly not going to be picky as long as they all have that reedy, sweetly wheezing, blessed drone.

(I was a guest at an Indian wedding once, and the ceremony included some musicians, one of whom played, I now realize, the harmonium. Beautiful.)

Indie rating: Mirah - "Light The Match"
