The Olms dropped a low-profile album last year – a collection of beautiful songs, finely crafted with classic 60s style. We didn’t expect they would also dress the part, with all the eccentricity of the decade…
August 2014, Fort St. Père, Saint-Malo. While festivalgoers were pogoing and head banging in masses at the Thee Oh Sees concert, we followed the four Londoners of Fat White Family […]
Here we go again! We are super excited to announce that we are filming Pitchfork Music festival Paris this year. Thursday, October 30 to Saturday, November 1, our cameras will […]
We know nothing about Fictonian. We have but a single photo of him, taken from afar, and until now we’d only heard one of his pieces, “Full Circle Influence” – […]
His voice is delicate. His guitar style tight. His songs minimalist. Physically, Tsutomu Satachi is completely spare; not a single thing sticks out of place. Faced with an entity built […]
Behind Weyes Blood there’s Natalie Mering, whom we’ve already seen on guitar with Jackie-O-Motherfucker and in Ariel Pink’s choruses. After a quick visit with Not Not Fun, we see her […]
Twelve strings, four hands and one astounding display of agility: Rodrigo y Gabriela don’t simply play the guitar, they bring it to life.
There’s always a certain absurdity to getting into an empty stadium, finding yourself alone and surrounded by immensity and silence in a place so usually full of life and noise […]
Because we saw them play at La Plage du Glaz’art this summer (and because we’re nice) we have a really cool song for you from Gengahr.
They seemed like it was their first day in love. They were smiling. They looked like they were happy to be there on that sunny April afternoon. They were the grandparents that everyone wished they had.
NO CEREMONY/// is exaltation despite suffering. It’s a band who takes the ashes of its sadness to make confetti, who keeps going when the heart’s no longer there and who […]
I was this close to writing 40 lines of “Kevin Morby is great” for you, because talking about everything from this guy’s talent, to his fortunate pedigree (The Babies, Woods) […]
Surrounded by valleys and beaches, thickets and stone houses and rocks softened by the tide, the Rance dam is like an anomaly in the Saint-Malo countryside: a model of uprightness […]
We had rarely stripped a song as much as Sivu’s “Better man than he,” leaving the artist alone in front of a cliff, with four brass players to soothe his melody.
I remember having read that Damon McMahon responded plainly, ”I’ve had many lives” in an interview when asked about his past. His atypical path in life makes it seem, however, like […]
Benjamin had on a sweater that was a little big for him, a tee shirt with a nibbled collar and a disarming smile of delight and sincerity, one of a […]
I’m not sure he said hello to us, I wouldn’t even know if he was there when we greeted the others. I didn’t really make note of him until a […]
Oh, you could have resented us, Mathieu. Imagine, the first time we filmed you, the camera that we used still recorded on videotape. We remember it because a few days […]
We had already filmed Vincent Segal and Piers Faccini many times, separately. Filming them together before the release of Songs of Time Lost, their first collaborative album, was an obvious […]
At first, I had only seen one photo of him. A tall, thin guy against a white wall with too many curls on his head. He was buried at the […]
