DJ Me DJ You's People Together DVD essentially consists
of one film, a music video of "People Together," the band's
light, Lemon Jelly-esque single. A soft beat is laid
under a lush, repeating guitar chord pattern and a funny, catchy
chorus. It's a strong song, and one that should appeal to Röyksopp
and Les Rhythmes Digitales fiends.
The video itself is an amateurish, yet effective film. It's
got practically everything you could want - dancing girls, car chases
(sort of), and giant buffalo wings. It's something offbeat that
would make a nice addition to the MTV playlist if they weren't stuck on their
regular 4-song-cycle of major-label-exclusive tunes.
If you can find this video somewhere, it's definitely worth a
couple of viewings. The song, however, is the major attraction -
and for good reason. Just as was the case with Lemon Jelly's
"Stanton Lick," one listen to "People Together" and you're hooked.
