Some Gifts Share Live Video For “Defective Detective”

posted in: Music NewsRock

Los Angeles band Some Gifts have released a performance video for their song “Defective Detective,” recorded live by Michael Jung and shot by David Aguilera. What comes through here, even more than on their studio work, is what an impressive power trio the band is. The smoothness of the transitions from verse/chorus through extended instrumental sections, with the rhythm sections really holding it down, recalls the seminal NYC post-punk band Television - and they had two guitarists. Perhaps Built To Spill, another guitar-driven trio, is a closer analogy, as the ’90s-’00s indie rock influence is also clear here. “Defective Detective” is a new track but does not appear on Some Gifts’ new LP Facts?!.
