I have an earlier album of his I thought was decent, but I'm really digging the new one.
Yeah, that one song is super addictive, but the whole album is such a well crafted piece of poppy weirdness. These guys are lots of fun.
can't find any decent video off their more recent album yet.

No reason, I just want to play some EMA.

Oh man, it's another upside down guitar player. Also, don't take this video as fully representative of Shamir's style. This kid wears a lot of different hats.
This is more newish than new, but whatever, I've been meaning to play this kid for awhile. Here he is in a very stripped down performance tickling some very out of tune ivories (and a drunk cameraman it seems).
Shades of Nilsson.
Hmm, no one's listening anyway, so let's go a little bit eclectic for a Monday.
Don't think I've seen an upside-down snare before. Huh.
P.S. Also, I might have to check these guys/this guy out.
P.P.S. One of the Sisyphus collaborators if anyone has been compelled to check them out. I... have not yet.
Big thanks to Spooky for a varied and awesome playlist. Let's keep things interesting.
Man, I love her voice.
