Such a broad range of exciting and interesting electronic music. I think the dance direction will be a killer section of the Pomplamoose biopic.

(maybe more me, really)

a hint at divisions in the Pomplamoose camp?

Number None, Saturday, 16 June 2012 10:44 (five years ago) Permalink

If my partner forced me to listen to Justice and Swedish House Mafia, that would lead pretty quickly to hinting at divisions if you know what I mean.

either way, i guarantee they spend a significant amount of time thinking about matt & kim

I want to like what they're doing, though. I think it's interesting to see video accompanying every track. Reminds me of this Anthony Rochester video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fClHllGaWH8

Which is also indiepop for the public radio audience. Somehow it's a lot more charming, though.

I think part of the charm of twee is that it's usually a modest and humble sound. Pamplamoose, however, are seething with false modesty but are actually really privileged, arrogant and narcissistic.

EDM-age Pomplamoose hasn't really lived up to my expectations. It seems like a whole new brand of irritation, which is less fun than it would be if they properly supplemented the irritation they already had going on.

Also it's kind of perversely enjoyable at points.

new song and intro text are all very "oh, wrinklepaws" imo

It's kind of cool how they switched out the music for each (singing Carly Rae over the Gotye verse and Gotye over the Carly Rae chorus). As a Tuesday diversion, pleasant enough.

Nonesuch President Bob Hurwitz recalls the first time he heard about Pomplamoose: “Brad Mehldau told me over lunch one day about these two extremely cool musicians in the Bay Area that had found a new and original way to get their music out. I looked them up online and the first video I watched was ‘My Favorite Things.’ It was clear they were onto something special.” He continues, “I tried to get in touch with them, to no avail, but my colleague Lenny Waronker, the great producer and executive from Warners, brought us together about a year ago. The minute I heard Nataly’s demos I knew she had an original voice and was someone we would love to have as part of the Nonesuch family.”

Dawn said of her decision to work with Nonesuch: “I can’t tell you how encouraging it is to be working with such passionate and intelligent people. People who care about music, and who are pleasantly old fashioned in the way they deal with artists.”

I saw this video interview with Mike Doughty where he was asking the guy to name any artists post-2002 or so that had real success in the internet age w/o label backing and the guy says "POMPLAMOOSE!" and Doughty rolls his eyes
