Are you surprised that the topic of lifting weights doesn't come up more often in rock lyrics? Do you like seven-layer falsettos? Do you like music that puts the "chest" in "orchestration"? Here's a video of the many-fangled band known as The New Whole Usuals doing their song "Moonswell" in front of an occasionally attentive audience over at Mercy Lounge back in May. If you like what you see, you can check out another video of the novel complete regulars filmed at The Basement and streaming, with limited commercial interruption, at Livestream. If you like what you hear, you can go buy/stream their album Every New Whole Usual Will Die over at their Bandcamp page, and then see how they did it — chaos! Beauty! Two-by-fours! — after the jump.
