Plume Giant: “We Got it Made” (2012)

It’s easy to let yourself get caught up in the happy vibe of this one. Plume Giant came together as students at Yale University and began making a fresh sound built on harmonies, whimsical humor and a willingness to play an unusual array of instruments (viola, harmonium, melodica). They graduated in May and released their first full length CD, Callithump in August. “We Got it Made” has a dash of dixieland, a pinch of Pink Martini, and loads of simple joy. The video is fun too:

 

Here they actually bring something new and pleasant to “Strawberry Fields Forever”, although it looks like they picked a crappy spot for busking.
