Venus Hum stuff

The cats from Venus Hum have been posting some stuff on Vimeo lately. Below is a stripped down acoustic version of one of their new songs. The audio quality isn't great, but still worth a listen.

If you're looking for something new to listen to, give them a try. I particularly like the tracks "Get Out Of The Way!," "Mechanics & Mathematics" and "Tell Me Secrets." This is probably their most accessible album, and as good as their Songs for Superheroes EP. Like a lot of people, I learned about them from their opening for Blue Man Group on the original Complex tour.

On one hand, it's neat to see how they (as well as other favorites like Imogen Heap) can record without a big studio infrastructure around them, but being independent makes it a bitch to get noticed too. The electronic music craft isn't something everyone is good at, and they elevate the art. Annette Strean, the vocalist, has got serious pipes. I hope beyond hope that they visit Seattle, otherwise, I'll have to visit Nashville to see a show.
