Things I don't understand #71...
...Why I don't get invited to parties like this(see video at bottom).
Don't get me wrong. I get invited to parties(Lots and lots of parties.). But not parties that feature very intimate settings with live bands. So yes, I'm gonna talk about music again. It's Monday. It's Music Monday. Go ahead, test me on this. Come back next week and see if I not talking about music again.
This week it's a band that I pretty much stumbled upon all on my lonesome called The Love Language. And I get the feeling no one really knows about them, yet. At least, not any of the sources I usually consult. In fact, they're so big their only internet presence comes in the form of a myspace page(Go ahead, give them a listen). But the kids are good. And having fun. They're a little more lo-fi than I usually prefer, but I found it impossible not to like their stuff. You may find it possilble not to like them, but I dare you to watch/listen to the track below and not have some involuntary toe-tapping going on. Impossible! (Added bonus: While watching the video[1:40 mark], feel free to compare and contrast the energy levels of the tamborine/keyboards chick and the bass player. Bass players: The hall monitor of the rock world.)
