Ben Folds Five is an “old media” musician. Nick Hornby is a “really old media” writer. Pomplamoose is decidedly new media as they make music/videos and distribute them solely online. They are not signed to a label. Nope, they’re getting rich off the YouTube videos they post. That’s what makes this collaboration so interesting. Ben is coming out with a new album with lyrics written by Hornby and the first video is this one with Pomplamoose. The old dudes are tapping into the young cat’s popularity for a little free advertising and the younguns are getting to work with big-time players. Only in the interwebs could this story be told. Fraking awesome.
