Once upon a time, I had a radio show that only played bands currently 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. Everyday 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.
TRAMPLED BY TURTLES – FEED THE METER
Let’s all be honest with ourselves, Trampled by Turtles may be the best band in the world, but their band name is horrible. Anyway, this is some sweet sweet fiddle. You guys know I love me a good fiddle. I could maybe go without the lead singer, but the band is awesome. I like how chaotic they all sound playing together. It’s very lively and exciting. The fiddle is definitely still the star of the show for me, though. While I feel like this could be hard to dance to, it’s definitely good drinking music. I’d listen to this again and so should you.
