My dear friends just moved from Copenhagen to Los Angeles and on their first night here introduced to me their friends' band, Choir of Young Believers, who I got to see perform at Spaceland last week. Lovely people. Beautiful musicians. Charismatic performers.

I searched videos when I got home from the show and found the following video, a BOOOOOOM collaborative music video for COYB's hit, Action/Reaction.

If you're not familiar with BOOOOOOOM (I wasn't until last week) it's the brainchild of a dude named Jeff Hamada who launched Booooooom in hopes of fostering a community of people excited to go out and be creative.

Check out these Wild Thing forts, for instance. So much awesome.

I love this. I love the danciness, I love the puppets, I love the lip syncing. So many things to love in one video.

Also, unsure whether "danciness" is a word.

Extra also, YAY comments!

Rebecca, this is actually a comment on the previous Track Tuesday post, Sufjan Stevens's gorgeous gorgeous version of Lakes of Canada, because I am too sleep-deprived to figure out where to comment on that post. Or maybe you didn't open comments there.

I have been a huge nonstop fan of Sufjan's since 1991, when I met him at summer camp in Northern Michigan. Even as a teenager he was an absolutely lovely human being and the most talented musician I have ever met. I have just loved watching him get the kind of recognition that his talent and work merits, and I'm so glad you put this out there.
