 Pomplamoose<< Adam, March 25th, 2010 >>

I’m apparently late to the party on Pomplamoose.  According to their YouTube channel, they’ve been around for at least a year, but I get the impression they’ve been around longer than that.  Does YouTube purge videos over a year old?  I didn’t think so, but I can’t seem to find anything older than a year on their channel.

Anyway, I found them because Neatorama posted about Pomplamoose being tapped by YouTube to promote Musicians Wanted.  At the same time, they posted a link to Pomplamoose’s cover of Single Ladies.  While I’m no Beyonce fan, I will be perfectly candid in that I saw the preview picture and thought, “She’s kind of cute,” so I clicked play.  I’ll be damned if I wasn’t hooked.

I challenge you to watch the following (all the way to the end) and then tell me that a) it’s not awesome and b) you wouldn’t want to have dinner with Jack and Nataly.

Buying the two albums they have available through iTunes was a no-brainer.  Easiest $15 I’ve spent recently.  I found navigating their MySpace page a little more difficult to navigate to buy more music, but I’m going to have to give it another shot.

I’m enthralled by both the music as well as the videos.  Most music videos don’t really add to the music – usually, I find that they’re distracting me from the music.  Not so with Pomplamoose’s videos.  The basic concept of showing you exactly what you’re hearing works so well for layered music which is being made by only two people.  Plus, seeing Nataly sing with herself is, for some reason, very endearing to me.  Luckily, the music holds up really well, even without the videos.  I will be happily stalking the Pomplamoose YouTube channel for more stuff from here on out.
