“I wanna go to the equator, it’s so hot there right now…”
Here’s one that came to me in the email box thing yesterday that I was quite drawn to. Meet The Leafs – a twangy indie-rock duo with one guitar with the strings all tuned to one note and a drummer who only plays two drums. It’s very simple, primative rock & roll – and they’ve got a pretty damn cool video to go with it. Essentially, the whole thing is random footage of people doing things in slow motion. Been done before? Sure. But what hasn’t? What’s cool about it is the way that you’re entranced by whatever it is that they’re doing – whether it’s playing the bongos or smashing up a TV, it all strangely fits in with the song itself. Definitely check these dudes out, and maybe even grab their free album over at Bandcamp?
