Pomplamoose and VideoSong

I'm obsessed. These two are so talented. Pomplamoose is their name, and they make something called a "VideoSong." In their words, "A VideoSong is a new Medium with two rules: 1. What you see is what you hear (no lip-syncing for instruments or voice). 2. If you hear it, at some point you see it (no hidden sounds)." Beat the Horse by Pomplamoose is an example. I think my first taste of something like this was a video editing guy I posted about a long time ago, here. The difference is these two are actual musicians, they record the tracks and then layer them. I think I thought they were doing a similar thing at first, but I realized Lasse in the video from 2007 was editing sounds together, and these two are editing layers or tracks together. Editing trick verses musical talent. I need help with my music. I want to be at a level nearer this, not the messy sounding, tape recorder style junk I've got now. Enjoy. Made famous by Nat King Cole. There's more too but just go to their site.
