From time to time, Russell shares some of his musical interests and discoveries on Twitter. For the past two days, he's been saying great things about Walk Off The Earth, an Indie band from Canada. I'd not heard their music before, but I thank him very much for the introduction to them. Their music is a real experience! At the bottom of this post, you'll find some info about the band and links to other sites related to them.
Here's what Russell had to say about the band, followed by two videos from their official Youtube page.
