Forget The Bongos...

This is amazing:

(via cyberinsekt)

Not DivShare, although I have been looking for an excuse to try it out, but "A Little Bit Of Solidarity Goes A Long Way" by "And I Watch You From Afar".

In trying to catch up with LJ yesterday I listened to this and for the first couple of bars I was thinking WTF, expecting it to launch into steel drums and bongos any moment, but instead the base heavy guitars kick in and it's just wow. I really didn't see that coming and now I've had it stuck in my head ever since.

There's enough to the rhythm and tune to make it interesting, but everything is laid out on the surface. Nothing's hiding underneath. Absolutely brilliant and thoroughly unpretentious inspite of their utterly pretentious sounding name.

There's more of their stuff on MySpace.

I may have just bought their CD, so expect another post about them when I get that far down the pile.
