The Hang – ‘Anthem’
Music arrives in short bursts of inspiration and here is Exhibit A. This video, shot mostly on an iPhone, features Jon Sosin of The Hang recording the solo for “Anthem,” a song from the band’s upcoming album Playola. The solo is so blisteringly right on that someone can be heard telling Sos to break, or at the very least retire, his guitar after nailing the solo in one take. Anthem really is this band’s anthem and you can get the song for free from their website (http://thehangband.com/). But before you do that, check out the video and see if it’s something you’d be into. The Hang is an unsigned band from L.A. that formed in 2010. They have two new albums and more than a dozen videos coming out in 2012. Watch this space for more.
