Ben Folds does Such Great Heights? yeah, apparently.
one friend of mine that could claim to be Ben Folds' brother sent me this mp3 of the man covering one of the best indie music songs, maybe ever? it's extremely electronic, electronic sounding, that is, with instruments! and so incredibly different from almost anything i've heard him do, so be prepared. i'm told that he used towels inside the higher strings of the piano to make it sound like a synth. yeah, that's pretty much a direct quote.
::::for your listening pleasure:
Ben Folds - Such Great Heights
for a little added bonus, here is the video.
watch his hands go. my god.
"this shit just will not fly."
