Tuesday Tunes - La Blogotheque Favorites
Hello everyone. This week I'm going through some of my favorite La Blogotheque, Take Away Performance videos from the wonderful internet world. I think I've posted some before, one being Fleet Foxes, which is probably one of my all time favorite musical performances. Anyway, here are a few I've watched a few times over in the last couple weeks.
Portugal The Man - So American
I love that opening scene is someone preparing a meal. I think that kind of gives you an insight in what it's like to be in one of these performance videos and also what it's like to be a band. It seems kind of family oriented. Also, someone is using a jar lid as an instrument, and they are doing an excellent job.
Foals - Late Nights
I think what's so interesting about these performances is that they are always in some weird place, this one being in a library. In an age where there's a new band every 5 seconds, I think this clip of Foals pretty much lets you know they are going to have a lasting impression (or atleast they should). This is a really intimate performance, and that always allows things to seem much more special.
Hellogoodbye - When We First Met
To be honest, I didn't even know this was on LaBlogotheque's YouTube page. I stumbled upon it as I was getting the links for the two above videos. I'm a huge fan of Hellogoodbye, but mostly the sole songwriter, Forest Kline. Thankfully, he progressed from their earlier styles of music, and moved on to something a little more grownup but still just as fun. I'm glad he chose these songs for his performance.
