BeenAroundButIOnlyJustGotIntoThem: Architecture in Helsinki May 6, 2007

Posted by alexd in BeenAroundButIOnlyJustGotIntoThem, Music, Video.

As someone who didn’t really get into they’re earlier stuff (apparently not so early, the band formed in the late 90’s). I have now been completely converted. Solely and misguidedly i will unofficially crown one of the most inventive bands on the planet. Well until i find out who has previously been doing acapella bass lines at least. To be honest looking back I’ve missed a trick. I shall just blame naivety and ignorance of youth for that. Glockenspiels, clicks, harmonies, trombones, synthesisers and handclaps and evidently influenced by the Mighty Boosh (possibly Sesame Street). If this video cannot make you love them, then nothing can. Be converted. Get tribal.

Yeah I went through a phase of loving this band, but none of their tracks had that “oomph” to them, but yeah their new stuff has more of a kick. Love the steel pans and acappellas in this track.
Yeah boi
