The Maccabees live acoustic session

Posted August 8th, 2007 by eric

During a recent US tour with Bloc Party and the Noisettes, The Maccabees performed a four-song acoustic set for Daytrotter, which you can listen to here. Three songs are from the band’s dizzying debut Colour It In and translate amazingly well to the extremely sparse setting. Vocalist Orlando Weeks’ warble is much more subtle here yet still infectiously charming. The band also performs “Good Ol’ Bill”- an unreleased track. Definitely worth checking out.

    Their album has been in heavy rotation for weeks now. I can’t put my finger on why I love it, but I do.
