I was interrupted by the egregiousness of all the egregiousity that was Wai Young's comment about what constitutes springtime in Vancouver (and all the while trying to stop myself from thinking of Mel Brooks)...
So lets try this again.
Now, I know I've been going off on these kids for awhile now.
And I know the hipsters who feel they 'discovered' them, say a year-and-a-half ago, probably hate it that old guys like me are now digging them as much (or more).
But so what?
And in addition to what these kids are up to musically, what I really, really like about the little set below is that it demonstrates that one DJ who really likes a band can still make a difference in the life and, yes, success of said band.
Which is even more likeable when the DJ is KEXP's incomparable John Richards and said band is The Lumineers....
