Fruit Bats


So, yeah, the Fruit Bats ...

I just recently got introduced to the band thanks to the AV Club's "Undercover" Webisode series, where the band did a cover of Hall & Oates One-on-One.

Today, a Rhapsody promo/Web series caught my eye on RollingStone.com's Rock & Roll Daily blog. It features video of Fruit Bats' frontman Eric Johnson doing solo acoustic versions of Fruit Bats songs as well as an interview. The session was co-sponsored by Northwestern University, where, apparently, Johnson either hangs out or goes to school (I can't determine which based on the short synopsis beneath the video).

Either way, I thought I'd share the link here because I like it and I think soon most people will too. It's a smooth blend of The Shins (who the Fruit Bats have been touring with) and Wilco (like Wilco, the Fruit Bats are Chicago natives, but are now based in Portland).

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
