In theory they are very similar. Two groups of young folks making music in their native environment. Both bands heavy on the vocals, guitar driven pop/folk/rock. Even the video styles are quite derivative of each other. And yet I completly adore Pamplamoose and Nataly Dawn and Monsters of Folk bore the snot out of me. Its not a bad song. Musically its very well done, the gentlemen featured all seem very proficient on their instruments of choice. They sing well, and yet I dislike it.
Please, tell my why you think that is. Or why I'm wrong. Either one, you get to pick.
