Scene and heard: Nate swings by Dan's Brooklyn loft to bring his friend the Endless Knights DVD (in discreet brown paper wrapping no less!). Turns out Nate's a huge fan of the fake fantasy movie series and is happy to educate Dan on the latest news off the EK gossip blogs. Cue bromantic moment.
Who is The Scotland Yard? The chamber pop collective was formed in 2001 by Matthew Kerstein and Elia Einhorn, two college graduates with degrees in music. Neither are from London, they don't play gospel music, and they're not detectives. (In 2005, co-founder Matthew Kerstein and Sam Koentopp left the band to begin Brighton, MA). The band has played with The Violent Femmes and The Arcade Fire and has received glowing praise in Billboard and Time Out NY magazine. Elia's songs from their first album were also featured on The OC, another TV show created by GG creators Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz.
