Pomplamoose Covers the Angry Birds Theme, Because You Don't Hear it Enough Already

We've been taking a hiatus from Pomplamoose news after our cover story on the local YouTube sensation back in February, but this is too memetastic to resist: It's Jack Conte and Nataly Dawn covering the theme from Angry Birds -- that little cellphone videogame you use to keep from slitting your wrists while riding Muni.

If not already an unhealthy obsession among the smartphone classes, Angry Birds is soon to become one. This video will only contribute, as Conte and Dawn supply a cute but raucous cover of the game's rather innocuous theme. Their version begins with Dawn's sweet vocals and features one of Pomplamoose's heaviest guitar-rock moments so far. The blitz of a video clip has Conte and Dawn brawling in a slapsticky, Angry Birds style. All that's missing are the chortling pigs.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
