I was driving along the other day and heard a song on the radio (I don't always listen to the radio, usually I have an audiobook on my iPhone). It was catchy, with a loping-lazy bounce and a little marimba hook. I would have sworn it was John Mayer - not his style, but maybe he was branching out. Nope, not him. I did some Googling and the artist is the Belgian/Australian multi-instrumentalist Gotye.
The song? "Somebody That I Used to Know"
I. Am. Obsessed. It's got such a great hook and yet it's so simple in construction. It's from his 2011 album Making Mirrors. How did I miss it? Buy, buy, buy!
And then Kate (via her friend Jeruen) turned me onto this:
There are five, FIVE, people around that guitar. They are Walk Off the Earth. I will obsess over them, too.
