There's a band out of Columbus I've liked for some time, called The Proper Nouns who are on Columbus Discount Records. Very original mid-to-late1960s styled indie brit pop. I think what sets them apart are the lyrics and the vocal delivery of singer/songwriter Matt Ogborn. It can't hurt that he has some good bandmates backing him up.
I'm talking about them now because I saw they have a new video up for their tune "Lesser Stars." I like it a lot.
At first I thought, "What the fuck is a star swipe??!!" Then about halfway through the video I said "Ohhhh."
Check out the video HERE
Also, I hear they've been recording for another CD.
