First up this afternoon? The above clip from the multiple DOMA-nominated Ryan Thomas Becker (of his self-titled solo project, as well as the powerhouse Best Group nominee, RTB2), covering the similarly Best Blues-nominated New Science Projects and his song, "The Train."

Shot by the folks at Mr. Magic Productions, the clip show Becker finishing recording a song, and then walking around Denton's Square to give 'er a listen on tape. Pretty high concept stuff, I guess. But really good stuff, too.

Give it a watch. And, for comparison's sake, check a clip of New Science Projects performing his original version after the jump.
