[Video] The Drums – ‘Money’

07/28/2011

I can’t get me enough of those Drums. Their first album, The Drums, featured the widely popular “Let’s Go Surfing”, but it wasn’t just a catchy hit plus. The entire album was good front to back, worth well over 10 full listens (though maybe not if you don’t like Brit-style melancholy pop). It says something that after a year plus, it’s still a constant noise on my iPod. But, now, I get me some new material! Their new album, Portamento drops in early September (via Frenchkiss) and the video for its first single, “Money” just popped up. If that wasn’t enough, they’re coming here to The Independent on October 14th (the night before Treasure Island starts) and they kill live (their 2011 Coachella set was top 5 of the entire show, in my opinion). At the least check out Portamento; I haven’t heard it yet but if it’s half as good as The Drums it’ll be a constant presence in your headphones.
