Hands Down Eugene vs. David Karsten Daniels

In Uncategorized on July 30, 2007 at 11:51 pm

Nashville’s Hands Down Eugene has been blowing up the Nashville area, mainly because they bring disparate groups together with their indie–alt. country: The hipsters and the country music insiders. Here’s “Built For Speed” from their XOXO debut, Madison.

Now notice the eerie resemblance between Matt Moody, lead of Hands Down Eugene and David Karsten Daniels. Here he is buying some juice–he’s the bald bearded one.

See rockstars do real things! They marvel at modern technology!
I also saw some dude that looked like them at the copy place a few days ago. If I was sly enough, I should’ve taken his picture.

Now, here’s David Karsten Daniels in the video for “Jesus and The Devil” which just offers hints of his sweeping orchestral ability, as well as fade-ins and outs of the various venues David has played. Good sample of his music, though I prefer his rousing opener, “The Dream Before The Ring That Woke Me,” which is dependent on more people, more time.
Still, a good sample.


Los Campesinos!-“You! Me! Dancing!”

Yes, the video quality of this one is not so hot (notice the kid turning the vid camera on himself), but I think it perfectly relates what a Los Campesinos! show would be like, or how I would like it to be like. Completely spread out and disheveled, like an ice cream cone melting out all the sides–no oozing goodness should be lost. Los Campesinos! EP “Sticking Fingers Into Sockets” is out now on Arts and Crafts.

In an unusual move, here’s the actual real video. It’s animated, as is the video for “We Throw Parties, You Throw Knives.” I especially like the part where the superhero is zipping up his pants in the bathroom stall.
