You, Me and Optimus Prime

Via the lovely Topless Robot blog, I’ve just spent a most enjoyable few minutes watching the video for Canadian singer songwriter James Struthers‘ song, “You, Me and Optimus Prime”.

If I were called upon to describe his music, and to prompt you to check it out at the link above, I’d tell you that he’s somewhere between  Jack Johnson, Jazon Mraz and the awesome Jonathan Coulton – lilting acoustic pop with smart lyrics and a summery feel which is quite refreshing on these currently chilly, dark December days.

Plus, Optimus!  If the noble leader of the Autobots can’t get you to give a young singer songwriter a few minutes of your day, nothing can.
