Death From Above 1979 : "Trainwreck 1979" on Letterman and "Turn It Out" at FYF
Death From Above 1979 not only have the coolest band / duo name in the world, they simply make a hell of a lot of beautiful engaging noise. There is an impressive aural edge and intensity to their songs all coming from one distorted and perfectly effected bass, drums and vocals. They recently appeared on the Letterman show and surprisingly Paul Schaffer's band actually lent some musical support without stepping over or ruining their usual spartan yet powerhouse sound. Check them out- churning out a killer performance of "Trainwreck 1979" from their album The Physical World. After that, check out the video I shot of them way back at FYF (Fuck Yeah Fest) 2011 in Los Angeles.
