After blowing up the Internet with their cover of Gotye and Kimbra's "Somebody That I Used to Know," Walk Off the Earth are ready to deliver their debut EP, R.E.V.O.. The band's original work mirrors their cleverly arranged covers: opener "Red Hands" explodes with xylophone, walls of drums and anthemic chants, while "Speeches" rambles and shakes with an aggressive acoustic guitar that leads a delicate horn section. Closer "Summer Vibe" changes pace, cruising with breezy, sandy melodies, harmonica licks, carefree lyrics and more spirited group chants

R.E.V.O. will be released October 30th.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
