Oh glorious garage pop, how I love thee. I was looking for a new album to tuck nicely beside one of my all-time, top 10 albums, Up Against The Legends by The Legends, and what I found was Fort Nightly by White Rabbits (MySpace). And it worked perfectly. The elements are there—the hefty drums and electric guitars all have a massive pop ring and… oh… that tambourine!
The video for “The Plot”, a great song among many off Fort Nightly, is a disjointed following of the band as they prepare for performances and drive across the country. More a collection of snippets from a tour, the video is entertaining (I especially enjoy the towing of their tour van).
It’s videos like this that glorify being in a band and being on tour. It’s like an extended road trip, traveling across the country with your closest friends and playing great music each night. Wouldn’t that be the life? Oh if my creativity only included musical ability…
