Pomplamoose

Yesterday, while reading a post on Mainland Streel's blog, 'A Mainland Streel', about Candian musical artists swarming her city for the Juno Awards and wishing death upon Justin Bieber, I noticed she made reference to the Pamplemousse....

Yeah, yeah, yeah, it's the french word for grapefruit.... But that's not what I'm writing about today.
It also made me think about one of my favorite YouTube bands.... 'Pomplamoose' is the dynamic duo of Nataly Dawn and Jack Conte.... They create 'VideoSongs', which follow two simple rules:

1. What you see is what you hear (no lip-syncing for instruments or voice), and
2. If you hear it, at some point you see it in the video (no hidden sounds).

The Brock Press describes Pamplemoose perfectly, saying that 'Dawn’s style brings to mind Carla Bruni’s sunshiney adorableness mixed with the vocals of Leslie Feist and Regina Spektor. Conte, on the other hand, draws the obvious comparison to Thom Yorke of Radiohead, as well as a little of the melodramatic howls of Muse (without the excessive flourish) and the melodic spite of Brandon Boyd of Incubus without the rock-hard abs (I’m just kidding, Jack. I’m sure your abs are rock-hard too).'

Here are some of their videos to watch their amazing talents until you inevitably click on their banner below to visit their YouTube page....

  5. I really liked their version of Telephone. There's something about it that reminds me of a song you'd hear in 1960s scifi movie. Very cool.
