I just recently got turned on to this dude named Dave Douglas who is a jazz trumpet player of the modern persuasion, and he’s got this band called Keystone who, from what I’ve read, play original compositions to accompany these 1910s Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle films. That’s what the fuck I’m talkin about. So I’ve been listening to that stuff recently and there’s this one song that had this groove in it that was SUPER familiar to me but I couldn’t quite place it until Roshni helped me out (thanks Roshni!).
Dave Douglas & Keystone – Just Another Murder
Damn, this post almost doesn’t even need the music in these videos to be worthwhile, they’re both real awesome by themselves.
Björk – Human Behavior
I’m not sure if he’s just happened to write the same bass line for his song or if he was consciously referencing the Björk song… his Wikipedia page says he’s covered Björk songs before at live shows, but the info on that Keystone album says “all compositions by Dave Douglas”, so I’m not quite sure what the deal is. I think he did it on purpose though… maybe… ah fuck it, it doesn’t matter really, it’s a cool ass song regardless.
