I love FaceBook for finding fun stuff. I came across Pomplamoose and fell in love with them and their style.
Pomplamoose is an American indie music and indie jazz duo consisting of multi-instrumentalists Jack Conte and Nataly Dawn. The band was formed in the summer of 2008. (Quote from article in Wikipedia).
Their videos mostly take the form of "VideoSongs", a medium Jack Conte defines with two rules:
- What you see is what you hear. (No lip-syncing for instruments or voice)
- If you hear it, at some point you see it. (No hidden sounds) - again, from Wikipedia.
The name of the band derives from the French word pamplemousse (from Tamil pampa limāsu (பம்பரமாசு) = pompous lemon), meaning grapefruit since the 20th century or more rarely pomelo since the 17th century. (Yes, again.)
