For the last couple of months I have been completely obsessed with this amazing duo called Pomplamoose.   Jacke Conte and Nataly Dawn are their names and making music.. is so their game. (insert cheesy smile here).

They have amazing talent and are just too cool for words. Seriously.

One of my favorites.. well okay, some of my favorites from Pomplamoose- since I cannot just pick one- include:

* Hail Mary
* September
* Favorite Things
* Nature Boy

and on Nataly's site:

* Baise m'encor
* Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk (which you can play on the player at the bottom of my blog- do it!).

They do a lot of covers and throw their own spit on them, but they have some really unique originals like 'Expiration Date' and 'Little Things' and 'Be Still.'  The mixed meter and funky hemiolas are pretty snazzy in 'Little Things.'

I could listen to their stuff incessantly..
Their videos are super fly, and all of the singing/playing/dancing/snapping is real! They make all of the music, piece by piece, and then overdub it.

Here is a disclaimer from their youtube site.

A VideoSong is a new Medium with two rules:

1. What you see is what you hear (no lip-syncing for instruments or voice).
2. If you hear it, at some point you see it (no hidden sounds).

Pretty awesome! So check them out, buy some music from them, and be merry!
