The Baseball Project -- Good music or a gimmick?

    So I stumbled upon a couple of iTunes gift cards this weekend. Now, I'd like to stumble upon some new music.

    I've heard a couple things about The Baseball Project and I sampled some of their tunes on iTunes, but I'm still not sure if I like what I hear (in some instances it's hard to do that in 30 second bites). Usually, if I'm not sure, I take that as a no and pass.

    But this time, I thought I'd bring the discussion here. Does anybody here like their music? Is there a must-download song?

    Thanks, I'll hang up and listen...

    Never heard of the group or its music, but try looking up a few songs on YouTube. That way you can hear the whole thing.

    Wanted to like them. Don't. Can't say it's bad music and/or bad musicians. Peter Buck from my all-time favorite band R.E.M. is in there. I just found them quiet and boring.

    P.S. If you want to like a band because of their name, try The Baseballs. They're from Germany, and play popular American songs rockabilly style. They're fantastic.

    Here's their video for 50 Cent's "Candy Shop":

    Their version of Hot 'N Cold by Katy Perry:

    I think they're brilliant. These videos and songs are Americanized as it gets, and come to you straight from Berlin.
