Late as usual, but wanted to say thank you for posting that video of The Adults, I've been playing it heaps - wish I could buy the song.
Not impressed with the band name though, rather dull and it would've only taken a moment to find out it was already in use...

Me too - I love the way there is this suggestion or immense power, but kept under a tight, rhythmic restraint - an gorgeous and tension building loop of a song - the drumming is amazing, Shayne Carter is one of my favourite guitarists and Ladi6 has impressed me hugely ever since I saw her play at one of Russell's Great Blends. Her voice is amazing with the song, because it has that soft, powdery sound that belies huge power, just like the song itself.
It reminds me - not very directly, but in a very tangential way of one of my favourite, favourite tracks by the Allman Brothers Band. When I was a growing up, these guys were my all time favourite, band, but a lot of my friends didn't get them, and preferred The Partridge Family or Led Zepplin.
I saw the Allman Brothers on this tour - in Vancouver - maybe four or five days before this clip was shot:
