Hear This Band Today: Roosevelt

I’m an honest guy. And I’m the first to admit that once or twice (really not very many times though) I’ve written about an artist or a song and then never really listened to them again.

You’re right, I probably could’ve just said phone.

I was watching an interview tonight with a former German footballer, Michael Ballack, and was astonished by the quality of his English, apart from his tendency to say ‘far too less.’ But hey, he probably only says that because he’s picked up on how people say its antonymous cousin far too much.

Here’s his latest track, which you can call Montreal.

Update: Here’s an even dreamier Roosevelt tune:
