Sounds Like San Diego: October 19


One eskimO saw great success with their single "Kandi," which used an old sample of a tune originally written by Harlan Howard but most famously performed by Candi Staton as "He Called Me Baby." Having the good fortune of seeing the band live twice this year, I can tell you that the group has incredible depth beyond their single, and its entire record was made to accompany cartoons, The Adventures of One eskimO. The advantage of having the show at Anthology, beyond being a sonically perfect room, is that you'll be able to see how the songs pair with the animated shorts. If you don't have their full record already, after seeing them perform you won't want to go home without it.
