A half-dozen of my friends sent this to me within a few hours of each other. If you like music and you like clever mechanical puzzles then Wintergatan and the Marble Machine is well worth four minutes of your time. Amazing.
Band big-up: Future Islands
I don’t do band shoutouts that often, but I caught this lot on Jools Holland’s Hootenany (I think I’m saying that right), on New Year’s Eve. Possibly the best live performance I’ve seen all year (and I’ve seen Simple Minds and The Clash on the same night).
Not sure how to describe the lead singer’s performance. Er… mesmerising. Yes, let’s go with mesmerising.
Well worth a watch.
