3:30: So Many Dynamos (St. Louis)

“We’ve come to anticipate the waves of sound to unfurl fast, furious, and blissfully manic. Barbed, intertwined guitar riffs and drum assaults barrel down on you at dangerous speeds, and rarely let up for the duration… all to the ecstatic pleasure of warm, fuzzy eardrums and sweaty dance-floor workouts. And yet, now 10 years, 3 LPs, and close to 1,000 live performances removed from their inception, their sound sweetly, assuredly, patiently… builds. Each rhythm, note, and melody is meticulously calculated, plotted, and layered. We see the song constructing itself for a minute and a half until it locks into a groove… and what a groove it is.” – Motorco

Watch: So Many Dynamos - “We’re Not Above It” (Live at KDHX)
