Doesn't understand why the snow turns red like strawberries...I try hard to make up more palatable version of the truth than "because it is DRENCHED IN THE BLOOD OF A CHILD!" grin

i like. sounds late 60's/early 70's.

It's an incredible album, if you like the vibe of this song you'll probably love it.

I think they are from Seattle...which seems quite odd given the style of music. They are on subpop I think.

cool, they remind me of simon and garfunkel crossed with mamas and papas. That sort of califrnia sound. I like the beta band too, do you?

actually this might be a band that my ex dh was on about, but i am sure he they were form new york. prob different band.

Yes, I LOVE the Beta Band. Also really getting into Vampire Weekend.

Any good recommends's in this general area?

Sycamoretree Fri 26-Sep-08 15:30:05

Persephone - it's fleet foxes, song title WHITE WINTER HYMNAL - go to Youtube and look it up - enjoy!

Liked that. Cool vid too.
Have to root out a Beta Band album now, can't think what the track is called.

PersephoneSnape Fri 26-Sep-08 16:06:38

thank you! will do and report back!

hey sycamore thats the band he was on about Vampire weekend, coincidence. this was months back.

Sycamoretree Fri 26-Sep-08 19:54:25

That's so wierd! I love their song, not sure what it's called, but it has a lyric in it that's something like "peter gabriel song" and it's exactly like a peter gabriel song, but with their own twist. Interesting factoid - the guy from The IT Crowd who plays Moss directed the video...can't think of his name at the moment. Do you know who I mean?

Sycamoretree Fri 26-Sep-08 19:55:00

Weird, even.

piratecat Fri 26-Sep-08 20:12:22

hi, no i am not familiar with him.

If you like that sort of stuff do you like this track by the Shins?

New Slang

Sycamoretree Fri 26-Sep-08 20:28:36

Yes, that's really nice. The lead singer looks like such a Dad with those specs and headphones on though!

Looks like they only got a start up budget for their video, bless them!

The guy from the IT crowd is Richard Aoyade here
