This band is great, especially if you like glockenspiel.
I first came across them on the wonderful The Take-Away Shows website.
Everyone needs to watch these videos. Â They\’re shot on theÂ Seattle Bainbridge ferry, which I haven\’t been on, but I kinda want to ride now.
The glockenspiel player just goes crazy. Â A little crazy on the Lolita track, but a lot crazy on their cover of Guided By Voices\’ My Valuable Hunting Knife.
You should also read the post and watch the first video. I\’m not a cinematographer so I\’m still trying to figure out why I like The Take-Away Shows\’ videos so much. Â But if I had to pick a word, it\’d be organic.
You can hear a little of the environmental noise, but they\’re still wonderfully recorded. Â The musicians just kinda deal with whatever happens. Â In the Architecture in Helsinki videos, they\’re marching down the street and a car honks at them. Â And it just works.
