Pattern Is Movement Keeps It Going

A bio typically is not the main reason that I check out one of the innumerable tracks that grace my inbox everyday. However, when I saw that Philadelphia-based Pattern Is Movement's two members, Andrew Thiboldeaux and Chris Ward, "met at the ages of 13 and 14 --- as part of a Christian hip hop group" and were "raised in strict Pentecostal households and schools (see Jesus Camp)", I definitely was intrigued. The band will be touring this summer (dates to follow) and if the single "Right Away" is any indication, these could be the cats to see during those sultry nights when you need to get your groove on. With a wall of sound created between Andrew's vocals and keys and Chris' drums, they're reminiscent of a much more contained Polyphonic Spree or Arcade Fire.

All Together, the band's latest album and first as a two-piece, will be released on Hometapes on April 1, 2008.

Right Away

Oh yeah, here is a video of them covering Radiohead's "Everything In It's Right Place"...
