This week's episode of Grey's Anatomy was a bit of a baffling mess, but at least I got one good thing out of it: the discovery of The Flying Tourbillon Orchestra. The LA band's song "The Uniform" from the Escapements EP kicked off Thursday's episode, and it stuck in my head enough that I needed to look it up first thing Friday morning.
Since then, I've become a bit addicted to a few of the other songs on the band's MySpace page, especially "Don't Be Fooled." With unusual rhythms, simple but universal lyrics, and an appealing interplay between the male and female vocals, they remind me of every band I used to love playing back when I was a college radio DJ. It's not revolutionary music or anything, but sometimes it's exactly what I want to hear.
Did anyone else also pick up on this song? To watch a video for the Flying Tourbillon Orchestra's "In a Dream," which is on the same EP as "The Uniform," just read more.
