I'd Rather Dance With You
Norwegian band Kings of Convenience had me hooked with their first album, "Quiet Is The New Loud." Mildly reminiscent of Simon & Garfunkel and unsung pop hero of the '70s Arthur Russell, bandmates Erlend Øye and Eirik Glambek Bøe have put out a small body of work featuring their gentle guitar riffs and light drum beats. They come across as modest in their lyrics and general disposition, but this video for "I'd Rather Dance With You" finds them positively exuberant. Enjoy.
