Mountain Goats waterfront in NYC

September 18, 2012

This feels like it’s straight from some distant past, especially if you look away from the HQ pitchfork video. The Mountain Goats’ John Darnielle played a wonderful, solo acoustic version of Harlem Roulette, a cut off their upcoming October album Transcendental Youth. He gives a little description about the origination of the track in the beginning. It’s a lovely folk rock, almost Americana track.

Hundred Waters’ Visitor

September 8, 2012

Incredible. Hundred Waters performed a stunning rendition of their song Visitor in a loft in Brooklyn. Pitchfork.tv featured the quiet, breathtaking clip. It was a mere two days ago that I featured Hundred Waters’ incredible stop motion animation video for amazing song Thistle, and now we get this. There’s some fantastic talent in this band.

GRIMES – En El Laberinto

July 9, 2012

Thank you, Pitchfork for putting together this awesome 10+ minute documentary called En El Laberinto. The focus of the doc? The all too hot at the moment experimental indie pop star GRIMES, aka Claire Boucher. Mesmerizing stuff. The footage includes snippets of her set at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound Festival where she played possibly her biggest crowds yet. Don’t fret, Claire, that’s nothing compared to what’s coming up on the rest of your summer fest circuit and at your other huge gigs! She’s definitely one of the most intriguing figures right now in the burgeoning indie pop scene. 

Zola Jesus +1

June 4, 2012

If you’ve ever been to the Guggenheim in NYC, you’d know it’s an incredible art museum where the building itself is probably the epitome of the brilliance. I can’t imagine how amazing it must have been to watch Zola Jesus perform at night at the Guggenheim. Here’s Pitchfork’s +1 series video with an interview and clips of her performance, including a full recording of her wonderful gothic baroque pop song Vessel. Skip to about 3 minutes 14 seconds in for Vessel.
