One of my new faves is YouTube phenoms Pomplamoose, a musical duo composed of Nataly Dawn and Jack Conte. On their YouTube channel, they post what they call “VideoSongs,” quick and dirty (tho still quite professional) videos of them performing songs in their home studio. VideoSongs have two rules: 1. What you see is what you hear, and 2. If you hear it, at some point you see it (no hidden sounds). I love the sense you get of them using all of these modern musical and A/V tools to do creative, improvisational work that they can instantly share with the world. What fun.

    I dig Pomplamoose. I especially like their cover of Beat It.
