Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

It's been a while since I've written about musical duo Snail Quail, but my goodness are they enjoyable. They write fun songs about goofy topics, which kind of makes them the Flight of the Conchords of Phoenix (and who doesn't miss FotC? HBO Sundays just aren't the same without them).

This week we're bringing you some Tumblr lovin' from Snail Quail on their blog Sleep Waking.

More on what's awesome about this week's Tumblr of the Week after the jump...


Even though Snail Quail's Tumblr isn't jam packed with music-related material, the posts say a lot about the band's personality. From epic clips and GIFs from movies and classic stills from television shows to silly inspirational quotes and interesting speeches by Ron Paul, Sleep Waking has got it all.

I don't care that their video for "Phoenix, Arizona" is nearly a year old; I still get a kick out of it every single time, and I'm sure you will too. Check it out below.

Snail Quail are scheduled to perform Monday, September 19, at Donna Jean's Libations in Glendale.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
