i'm beginning to see a bit of a pattern here:
ridiculous amounts of people in fantastic bands.

the hidden cameras

broken social scene


arcade fire

belle orchestre

you say party! we say die!

and most notably, The Polyphonic Spree.

These performances include combinations of any number of people,
with anywhere from five to fifteen people on stage at a time.
(as well as the sharing of band members for live shows and album recordings.)

we seem to have reached a musical revolution.

Spiro, I picked mostly Canadian bands here because they are the ones that i currently adore the most.I hate to break it to you, but The polyphonic spree, the most famous of the bunch, are from Dallas, Texas.

On the topic of music, may recommend an artist to all? Antony and the Johnsons. What sound. I'm a big fan. If it doesn't get you, that's just so sad. (i really mean sad, not pathetic.)

*puts on old-man hat*
i recall a day when bands were at the least 20 people! consider the bigband jazz sound, the bebop movement, or swing in general hmmmm?? revolution? more like regurgitation!

wow that was almost mean.

i have become strangely comfortable with these sorts of bands k, i've definitely seen a shift in taste since you've become a my 'mixed tape' pusher...
