Mouth Tooth align themselves aptly with the freak folk movement. Hailing from, and still connected to seven piece Melbourne outfit Red Berry Plum, this duo made up of Rhys Mitchell and Max Turner have stepped aside to create some beautiful acoustic songs with vivid, surrealistic lyrics and idiosyncratic arrangements. We see their new focus deployed on Rhys' gorgeous vibrato and melodic skills with heavenly harmonies and instrumental accompaniment provided by Max. Mouth Tooth's music is often charmingly childlike with big doses of neo-hippie whimsy and is guaranteed to swoon you within an inch of your eyelashes.

10 years since his death.
