Yeah, where is that hitman guy anyway?
FTLT (the citizen that alerted the citizenry to the likes of Alabama Shakes and Courtney Barnett long before everyone else figured it out, who also used to be a DJ, contributor, and frequent commenter as well as being known as somewhat of a basketball enthusiast (in the case that anyone is unfamiliar)) causally dropped a mention in a FMD a little bit back. I've learned to listen when the hitman does so.
A collaboration between the lead singer of The Walkmen and one of the main cogs of Vampire Weekend, their album is a whirling plunge through genres, eras, and textures, but all with a distinctly original sound that I hope they explore on another album or two. Anyway, this song has been between lowkey to rock-climber's grip stuck in my head for the past few weeks now.
Okay, well, it's "newish". Anyway, if we had a FTLT signal, I'd be using it.

Huh, she grew up next to the boy's school.
I have wanted to play this band for a long time, as they are a favorite of mine, but there is a real lack of live video from them. Furthermore the quality of live footage from them is kind of, well, bad. This video is no different.
I strongly suggest looking these guys up for studio clips, they rule.
