The song kicks in at 2:30, so if you finding yourself nodding out, feel free to skip ahead. I’m still not convinced this band deserves the hype. But every time I find myself listening to them, there’s a point where I smile and say, I like this song. They’ve got something going on and I can’t put my finger on it. And, as my girl Martha Stewart says, that’s a very good thing.
I’m guessing they released this video now in order to remind everybody who’s compiling their “best of 2009” lists that Merriweather Post Pavilion was released in January.
