we’re gonna rattle this ghost town

Two posts in a row about the same band? Yeah, because I can’t stop listening to this acoustic version of Walk The Moon‘s “Anna Sun” recorded in someone’s living room. I ripped it to mp3 on Thursday and I think I have listened to it a few dozen times since then in hotel rooms and airplanes all weekend.

The musical joy here is unmitigated. And terrific.

  • Heather I think your going a bit off beam of late! This is truly awful college pap and nearly as bad as that Head and the Heart stuff you have been promoting suggest you get out and buy either the Low Anthems Smart Flesh or James blake as an immediate antidote

  • Ha, Low Anthem and Head and the Heart are touring Europe together this Spring. Low Anthem is great – to each his own, eh? ;)

  • Heather – Obviously you are right and different strokes for different folks. The Low Anthem are i think are trying something different not least in using the surroundings of an empty factory to infuse the ambience of their music. Tours over in Europe however which really excite are the Avetts in London in June and any time PJ Harvey walks out of her front door! Keep the faith

  • the line about “station wagon rides, fumbling around the back, not one seatbelt on…” immediately conjured up memories of being 6 in the “way way back” with my younger brother pretending we were driving backwards. Thank you so much for this!

  • Hilarious. I did the same thing you did: searched YouTube, found this acoustic version and ripped the mp3. It’s a definite sign of both a great tune and a band with chops (and likely a bright future) when you can flip an elaborately orchestrated tune into its acoustic version and it still captivates.

  • jon, i agree 100%. the harmonies in this are so jubilant, even moreso in the acoustic version.

  • Beautiful song! I’ve been following these guys pretty closely. If you can, check out their live shows! They are point-blank amazing. I swear to God it’s so amped up and great. Check out this video about their live performances. Describes them to a T. http://bit.ly/yWTULa

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
