“Days” (Live On KCRW) (Video)

    The Drums’ energetic live shows played a big part in establishing the group’s name, but in this clip for KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic the band members are forced to temper those impulses. You can tell singer Jonathan Pierce just wants to let loose while performing this version of “Days” from Portamento, which the confines of the KCRW studio don’t really allow. But it doesn’t matter as “Days” is more of a slow-burning track from the Drums’ catalog, driven by a bass-led groove with layers of guitar gradually stacked over the top. Check it out in the clip below and listen to the entire session for KCRW here. [via AHIAS]
