Music of the moment, Feb 8 2012

The internet has opened up venues for what would only otherwise be local cult acts.

Needing/Getting by OK Go

OK Go has, in the particular piece above, combined the art of logistics with the art of music and developed something rarely heard outside of acts like the Blue Man Group. The trademark wild and quirky sound that has dominated their catalog is still there, albeit in a completely different format than their older stuff, due to the nature of the "instruments" "played".

While less musical genius and more creative genius is involved with this tune, it still amuses me in a fashion that I can't quite put a finger on. Perhaps with the visuals and the idea of all the work that has been put into just getting this to the table gives me pause.
