I had a radio show that only played bands performing in the District. That show is super dead, so we’ve resurrected it (with way more words and far less radio) in the form of this column. Every day I’ll review a song from a band playing in D.C. that night. The rules are, 1. I can only listen to the song once and 2. I only have until the end of the song to finish my review.


I was originally intrigued by Oberhofer because it reminded me of Oktoberfest and I love beer but know nothing about German. I don’t even know if Oberhofer is a German name. I’m just guessing. I’m just doing my best. I do REALLY LIKE this song though. It reminds me of Congratulations era MGMT and something about is also kind of gives me some Alt-J vibes. But more fun than Alt-J because they’re are actually pretty boring. I am seriously loving this song and the music video is super weird and cool and almost kind of creepy because old footage looks creepy. This is seriously good. Go see them band.

You can see Oberhofer tonight at U Street Music Hall.
