Music: Walk the Moon

As I mentioned yesterday, I'm not really being inspired by the muse this week. So instead, I'll direct you to my newest favorite song and video:

I must give credit to Keith, who first told me about this band. A few interesting facts:
  • The song is named for a professor (several? all?) of the band members had at Kenyon College. I prefer to think that she was an English professor, inspiring a love of literature and an appreciation for the finer points of good writing in all her students.
  • The band is from Cincinnati.
  • At one point in the video, the lead singer wanders past several people playing drums. The woman playing a mini-bongo is actually playing a drum from the percussion kit that Keith's sister and brother-in-law gave Eleanor for her birthday last year. There's straps on the side of the drum and she likes to shove it all the way up onto her shoulder, showing us, "I can play and walk all around at the same time!"
  • They regularly use face paint at shows, which makes me wonder if I'll be going to see them live any time soon....
