Just something I thought was awesome for reals …
I knew nothing about the band KONGOS (@KONGOSMUSIC) before literary agent Brooks Sherman (@byobrooks) tweeted the link to this video for their song “Come With Me Now” today. Obviously, I’m quite glad he did, as any time you can get both an accordion and electric guitars in the same song, it’s pretty much guaranteed to kick ass.
“Come With Me Now” is being featured in the trailer for a movie starring Eva Mendes called Holy Motors, which comes out tomorrow, and the band has been opening for Linkin Park, so I felt it was time for me to give them their truly big break on my blog.
As is the custom for the Internet Wins of the Day, today’s point will be split evenly between KONGOS for rocking and Brooks for spreading the good word.
