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.
