I was tempted to give this week’s “video of the week” nod to someone outside of hip hop, not unprecedented but has been a while. This song by DC based band The Walkmen made that choice a little easier. I like this band partially because I’m a huge fan of The Cure, and I can hear a tiny but acoustically significant piece of them in their sound. Their appreciation of the upright piano is bonus points, vintage instruments are a must to indie bands with the expertise to play them. The video which features a jambalaya of photos and random footage time lapsed and synced for your viewing enjoyment is a simple but not crude delivery tactic. These guys have been making music for over a decade, but this upcoming album, also titled “Heaven” has got a lot of people talking breakthrough. Welcome to ZIF guys.
