The first time I have heard of this artist was in an E-mail today from his publicist, I found him unique, talented and interesting. Thus I am foisting him on you, enjoy!

Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness has shared a new video for his chart topping hit, "Cecilia and the Satellite" today. The clip features a re-recorded version of "Cecilia" created entirely with toy instruments. Andrew re-arranged the song and recorded and filmed it in a single day. He said of the experience: 

"What do you do when you have a spare afternoon in Nashville?  Find a studio, a camera, a box of toy instruments and see if you can't make something cool happen. I had no idea what I was getting into when I showed up for this experiment, but I'm so pleased with how it all turned out." 

"Cecilia" is also now Top 10 at Alternative radio and Top 15 at Triple A radio. The song is gaining at Hot AC and on course to top the charts soon.
