Q

I love your music videos. It seems that the majority of them are beautiful animations. Is there a reason you look to animated music videos often for your musical manifestations? (The Ancestor is my favorite. Makes me tear up every time I watch it.)

We do seem to gear toward animation for our music videos. Part of that is not wanting to get anywhere close to the realm of the classic music video with band members in leather jackets lipsyncing in an airplane hanger with wind machines going like crazy and explosions in the background in time with the chorus downbeat. Another part of it is enjoying the increased distance between our music and the animated visual accompaniment. Those unexpected pairings give listeners a new experience and can open up new perspectives on the music.

Nothing magical about 4 or 5 people in our minds, it would just have to be the exact right fit to make sense!
Thank you for joining us for so much of the UK tour, Brian! It sure was hot where we were...

Was listening to the Radio Woodstock recording and learned the very important fact that Dave is a SYTYCD fan, so the important follow up question is, who's been your favorite contestant and/or performance from the show?

Wow, this is a hard one... and sorry for taking so long to answer. I only watched seasons 4, 5, and 6... though I keep telling myself I'll watch the other seasons. Season 6 was my favorite overall season, though the routine that always sticks in my mind for some reason is the bed routine by Twitch and Kherington (season 5) to 'Dreaming with a Broken Heart'. And I know this doesn't count, but I do love me some Nigel. Oh man, I think I need to go watch some dances right now...
