James Blake - Overgrown
my new video for James Blake.
Calvin Harris - Sweet Nothing feat. Florence Welch
The Lumineers - Ho Hey
As I mentioned yesterday, we saw The Lumineers at Hotel Cafe this weekend. The show was a blast. They draw heavily on country and bluegrass to make straight up roots rock goodness. Lots of fun.
Y La Bamba - Hughson Boys (The Sights of Sounds session)
We saw Y La Bamba open for The Lumineers at Hotel Cafe last night and they were awesome. Lead singer and guitar player Luz Elena Mendoza is impossible to deny. She’s about 6 feet tall, covered in ink, has striking salt & pepper hair, and sings in an otherworldly voice most easily compared to Joanna Newsom or Laura Gibson. But I was most impressed by Paul Cameron on classical guitar. He rips, and nails the perfect punk rock choirboy persona. Lots to love about this band from Portland.
Calvin Harris - Feel So Close
A little Thursday afternoon pick-me-up from the Loch Ness-land native.
One for the history books.
I fucking love Los Angeles.
Oh my. If this video doesn’t make you grin ear to ear, you hate everything.
The Walkmen - Orange Sunday
The Walkmen dropped two new videos and a free download of this B-side from Lisbon late Friday afternoon. The videos are mesmerizing (watch below). Download this track and “While I Shovel The Snow” at http://thewalkmen.com.
Not an official video for the track, but I love this skateboarding vid soundtracked by Panda Bear. Lots of shots from Venice skate park in here. Take me home.
Drop what you’re doing right now and check Arcade Fire’s insanely awesome new video experiment. If this doesn’t make you weep for your lost childhood, you were never a kid.
Happy Arcade Fire day!
Pro tip: If you buy the new album directly from the band (here), you get a second digital version with synchronized animated artwork. It’s actually super cool. Highly recommend.
Does anyone else have this problem with Tumblr video on Chrome? When a video post appears in my dashboard, this fuzzy frame appears in the browser’s upper left corner. I don’t think I’ve seen it on any other sites.
UPDATE: Don’t know what I was thinking. I definitely see it on other sites.
Hold that thought. I just discovered the Balmorhea Take Away Shows. This is Bowsprit. Purely sublime. (Is that redundant?) Don’t miss the other two episodes: Remembrance and Night Squall. Man, I am just floating away with these guys this morning.
