Michal Bandac & Mourning Glory combine an international line-up with an eclectic range of influences in this rock debut, Salon Songs and Monte Carlo Music, a double album because, as Bandac says, "We wanted to kind of separate all of the heavy songs from the more earthy, violin/glockenspiel/ukelele/acoustic guitar-based tracks, in this way, our beautiful fans are never forced to 'leave' us."
