But can you do cunning stunts?

 

 

Took me a sec as I’m on vacation rumming...  Posted them live on KEXP some time back here.  Yummy chow.

Right up my alley. Their songs all kinda sound the same but that also means they're all good.

😉

Bassist reminds me of Peter Hook from New Order.

They just get better, don’t they?  Masters of their craft.

Flock of Seagulls—what movie is that from?

Stars — I don’t know what it is, but I just don’t get them.

Pale Waves — dig!

I love that they don't hold back.  The animated band look like caricatures, but then they cut to the live versions and...<insert your favourite clickbait reference here>.  Did you catch all the references?  His watch was the LEDs from the cover of Ghost in the Machine by The Police.  That was a favourite.  And of course the Blade references.

In her defense, she is mixed kind of low in that clip.  But in not in her defense, her style ("indie") has always been kind of talky, but then she brings out the singing in the chorus.  The first album is still my favorite.

Like this a lot. Hear bits of Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Andrew Bird, all good!
