“So Long” (Live On KEXP) (Video)

    Is there a band more suited for the friendly confines of Seattle’s KEXP than Fruit Bats? I imagine a legion of lightly bearded dudes just straight chilling out to this on their morning commute to the vegan grocery store, nodding delicately to the dulcet sounds of Fruit Bats retro choogle. That might be a pigeon-holing/facetious way to describe what’s happening here, but know this: I saw Fruit Bats live once, and they were the most chilled band I’ve ever seen. I felt like I was being wrapped in a blanket of country pop records. This video of the band doing “So Long” on KEXP replicates that feeling perfectly. Watch more videos at KEXP. Fruit Bats’ Tripper is out now.
