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.
