Song of the Day: Liam Finn - Second Chance

Liam Finn is a badass. Skip my rambling and just watch the video below for proof of this.

Still with me? Liam is the son of Neil and nephew of Tim, both of Crowded House/Split Enz fame. Like those guys, he writes catchy tunes that aren't particularly flashy. In concert, however, the guy lets loose. I was lucky enough to see him at the Echoplex last year, and I was surprised to see what a small dude he is (I would venture about 5'4"). But like he does in the video below, he plays his instruments like they owe him money. He also loops them while playing a la Jon Brion, but my favorite part of his live show is to see him destroy the drums.
