Just Looking Around SmileyIt's presumptuous of me to assume a song is classified as "Pop" when I hear a mix or influence of multiple music styles.  Like most things I enjoy, I wish I knew the correct terminology so to be able to discuss what I think... and not sound stupid! 

Sparkling Purple Heart SmileyI have become obsessed with this tune! 

You don't need lyrics to feel it's dark, kinda Country/Folk/Punk, but I'm pretty sure it's the Swing/Jazz/Blues is what's transporting me back to memories I still have of fabulous vacations in New Orleans!  ...but this group is from Portland, Oregon?

...so, WHAT genre is this? 

Exclamation Point EmoticonsLook/listen to the "wicked fiddler" in this video (especially midway to nearer the end) - it's what makes me so obsessed with this song!  He's got the swing - vibrato, double stops, slides, improve and who knows what all, then POPS that harmonic on the E string! 

Cool Dude Smiley Smiley  ...I wanna be like that when I grow up!


Warning - couple explicit words at the end of the lyrics.



I Love Music Smiley- Emily
