My Brightest Diamond – La Blogothèque (videos)

11th Oct 11 (Tue) Leave a comment

My Brightest Diamond’s new album, All Things Will Unwind, came out yesterday in the EU (10/10) and it hits the U.S. next week (10/18).  You can stream the entire album here on NPR First Listen.  You can pre-order it from Amazon on CD, vinyl, and mp3 download.

She recently allowed the French video bloggers, La Blogothèque, a peak into her life… similar to back in 2007:

It’s a gorgeous album.  If I could only rave about two vocal albums in 2011, it’d be this one and Wussy’s Strawberry.  Go get ’em both.

My Brightest Diamond is also doing a little tour (of which I’m happy to be going to Portland)…

MBD’s release party is this Friday night at Littlefields (NYC), though tickets are going fast! Doors open at 8pm, and DM Stith opens shortly thereafter. 21+, tickets just $15; buy them here.

Nellie McKay – New Video & Touring behind her musical ‘I Want to Live!’

28th Jun 11 (Tue) Leave a comment

I Want to Live! a musical death row revue, conjures the life story of “a woman of dubious moral standards…often a guest in seedy bars…”

“Inspired by the 1958 movie of the same name, I Want to Live! combines Nellie McKay’s virtually unlimited gifts as a singer, songwriter, actress, pianist, ukulele player, mimic, satirist and comedian into a show that is much deeper than its surface might suggest,” writes Stephen Holden for The New York Times.   “In the most lighthearted way they evoke a heartless environment of social injustice in which people who fall through the cracks are invisible to everyone else.”

“Pretty darned unique,” adds Michael Musto of the Village Voice.

Nellie McKay – “I Want to Live!” limited tour (so far)
June 30, 2011 – New York, NY / Joe’s Pub
July 9, 2011 – Los Angeles, CA / Catalina Jazz Club
July 10, 2011 – San Diego, CA / Anthology
July 14, 2011 – San Francisco, CA / Yoshi’s

OK, I’m late to the dance on this one… it’s old…

The Arcade Fire’s latest 2010 video is an interactive interpretation of their song “We Used To Wait“… you put in where you grew up, and it brings in your old neighborhood into the video mix.  Behold, “The Wilderness Downtown“…

Sufjan Stevens and his Age of Adz band hit Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night.  Quirky, to say the least.  I love it… check the video over on Stereogum (sorry wp.com doesn’t support all flash video formats):

Jónsi – Live at Origami

4th Nov 10 (Thu) Leave a comment

Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi abruptly canceled a run of intimate acoustic in-store dates after playing just one performance in the Go Closer series.

“Standing there nose-to-nose with fans in the cold light of day the other day in Origami Records, Los Angeles, he had the sudden and undeniable realization that this is not the environment in which he flourishes,” said his management in a statement. “To those of you who saw it in Echo Park, cherish it, because it ain’t going to happen again.”

Well, luckily the Los Angeles performance was recorded… here are two videos caught by Jack Schlinkert (director) and Max Sweeney (add’l camera).

So, another time-lapse video from Jónsi‘s Wiltern show in Los Angeles… this time longer…


Film by Henry Jun Wah Lee and Kim Reid

I don’t know if there was a special project to do time-lapse shots for this tour, but I’m digging it!  Nice behind the scenes, soundcheck and in-concert shots included.

El Guincho’s “Bombay” video (NSFW)

13th Oct 10 (Wed) 1 comment

This came out about 3 weeks ago, but I recently got to see it.  El Guincho‘s “Bombay” is entrancing, odd and heavily features nudity (thus the NSFW warning).


Directed by Nicolás Méndez.
Produced by CANADA (lawebdecanada.com)

Check out their album, Pop Negro:

Rain Dance by Turf Feinz

9th Oct 10 (Sat) 1 comment

It’s raining in Eugene today… we don’t have dancers like they have in Oakland, though…


Dancers are No Noize (red jacket), Man (back jacket), BJ (striped shirt), Dreal (white shirt).
Directed and edited by Yoram Savion

Simply stunning.  I don’t know if this is break-dancing, popping & locking, a combination of both, or something totally different.  Regardless, it’s awesome.

Update: it’s called turf dancing or turfin’…
