#157 pomplamoose – my favorite things


have you ever listened to something and spent the next couple of days trying to figure out which instruments exactly were being used and how they were played? as a non-musician, i sometimes do (was mercury rev using a theremin or a singing saw on deserters songs? i still don’t know). with pomplamoose’s videosongs, though, music production is demystified and presented as it is – just check out the video for “hail mary”, for example, where the introduction of each segment or instrument is methodically represented in the video. the people behind pomplamoose are jack conte and nataly dawn, a very lovely duo with a very whimsical collection of songs that’s both fun and lighthearted. it’s an approach that effortlessly bridges the gap between musician and listener, and a testament to how good music need not be alienating or pretentious. and if you’re curious what pomplamoose means, do check out the video for “my favorite things” (it’s not an extinct animal, i promise).

    I absolutely love Pomplamoose. I just heard them tonight and I am still excited to buy their album tomorrow! Beat the Horse is amazing!
