The First iPhone Band

smashediphone.jpgWhile they are still technically a “cover band”, we now have entered the rubicon of bands using iPhone’s as a main instrument in a band. Here we have The Mentalists covering MGMT’s “Kids”
. I think in future listening I may be prone to Soulwax’s remix of the song. The band uses Ocarina, Retro Synth, miniSynth and DigiDrummer Lite to obtain their sound, however untill the drummer gets a little more tight they may want to consider programming the drums into iDrum. Jump for the video.
