All of Fuzz Steilacoom’sbest qualities are revealed in “Alabama Movies” and “A Little Late,” the opening and closing tracks of the Oklahoma City duo’s third full-length. The relationship between them unveils the worst.
I've never had a smartphone, because I like to keep my life simple. My phone calls and texts. That's it.
But as smartphones get more and more sophisticated, I'm starting to covet one. This latest dispatch from the "Look what the iPhone can do!" files has definitely increased my phone lust.
The excellently named local pop-rock band Dr. Pants produced an entire music video for "Sarsparilla Girl" in 48 hours, with the only camera being an iPhone 4.
I was skeptical, but I watched it in HD (!) and was amazed by how great it looked. It doesn't look like a low-budget production at all. The indie sheen it has comes more from the shots they decide to take (biking around the Pops parking lot? Awesome!! Playing pass the Frisbee down the line a couple times? MORE AWESOME!!!) as opposed to the quality of the shots. Super kudos to the band for their creativity and ingenuity.
Also super kudos for proudly repping Oklahoma, by setting the whole video at Pops and having the lead singer wear a Guestroom Records T-shirt. I love it when bands rep their scene/hometown/home state.
