The Guggenheim Grotto – Fee Da Da Dee

Two bums from Dublin playing folk music? A cover that looks like some Dave Matthews tribute band? Is that tie-dye? Sounds boring! Well, while the rest of these guys’ tunes didn’t grab me, the power of “Fee Da Da Dee” is undeniable. The slowly chugging rhythm establishes the intimate yet upbeat  mood and then the whole thing just picks up and soars away. The back and forth male vocals then roll into the female bit and it gets just that much more awesome. I just may have to give this album further listening. [via Silence-Killer]

    Keep listening. The standout track on this album REALLY stands out, but “The Dragon” and “Just Not Just” will be the next to grow on you. The latter is the most similar on the album to “Fee Da Da Dee” while the former sounds like a mixed bowl of Blitzen Trapper and Rufus Wainwright’s best songs.

    Sidenote: Your music player on the left side always starts by itself when I’m typing comments. I just figured out the key combination that’s setting it off—Shift+Space makes the player Play/Pause. That key combination happens a lot if you’re still holding shift after typing a symbol that commonly has a space after it like a colon, exclamation mark or close bracket. It also takes over the Shift+Left and Shift+Right so you can’t use the keyboard to highlight text you’ve typed. I don’t think there’s any way to disable the keyboard shortcuts though.
