We’re only one month into 2009 and I’ve already found two bands that I think deserved a spot on my year-end music list (that I posted on my much-neglected other blog). The first is Frightened Rabbit, which I wrote about the other day, and the other is a band with a name that is both glorious and damned to be embarrassing in a devastatingly short amount of time: Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head.
NPSH is basically a young party band that infuses their electronic dance rock with silly lyrics and an aggressively goofy attitude. Aggressively goofy? Yes, aggressively goofy. See their video below for Sophisticated Side Ponytail.
There’s something I like about the fact that NPSH’s music, like their name, seem to be a kitschy, contemporary joke. It probably won’t age well, but that’s not important. The fact that they have enough balls to make music that probably won’t stand the test of time is something that I admire.
But, who knows? Maybe they’ll be the Dee-Lite of the late 2000s.
