Sam is an absolute beast and this is so so good it makes me want to weep.

Funnily enough a friend of mine showed me this exact clip last Saturday.

I was blown away.

It reminds of Vulfpeck and some of their jam videos, but with a modern dance edge to the jazz funk.

Just finished listening to the latest album.

They record as an electronic duo and the jazz influence is much less pronounced.

The closest camparison I can come up with is LCD Sound System.

Still very good though.

I actually dislike everything I've heard from them previously.

Apparently it's only quite recently that they've started touring with a live band and that's funked things up quite a bit.

The album version of 'overtime' is a lot more house/elctro than jazz/funk. (I'm well out of my depth assigning genres to this electronic stuff).

I recommend listening to a tune called Weird Part of the Night by Louis Cole, it combines everything that's great about Knower.
There's jazz, funk, 80's / Prince, 90s techno and straight up pop music influences in there, all squished up and injected full of weirdness and humour.
I'm on a phone so I can't post it but it's a tune.

This one?

I think I like it, but I may just be dazzled by the trousers/dance moves combination.

Very cool tune. I like how his microphone is wired but he walks down the street... Brilliant
