Whenever we ask our readers which artists they want us to film again, they all say the same list : Beirut, Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, Feist and Alt-J. Well, there […]
Patrick Watson covers ‘Summertime’ with a string quartet, Moses Sumney improvises a cappella on the streets of New York City, Alex Zhang Hungtai jams in a Lisboan cellar and Mondkopf weaves a poisonous piece from ‘Turning Point’ at a campground. We decided to pay homage to the Blue Note label. Here’s the result.
Hundreds of steps lead to our position, a concise visual icon of contrapuntal activity leading to vertical arrangement, voice set on voice set on voice in the elegant harmonies of […]
Efterklang, with a philharmonic orchestra, a choir, guests, unreleased tracks… It all makes for an exceptional concert given by the Danish band last February. Vincent Moon was on center stage with them. Today, we present to you the film that resulted from this unique event.
Soul singer is a full-time job. With its little rituals, its necessary discipline: warming up your voice, grasping a new terry towel and lowering your head before entering the stage, […]
In the life of a musician in New York, to have found some modest success in your field is to be perpetually absent from the city you spend such labors […]
Picture a gigantic warehouse; above you the ceiling reaches excessive heights, below you the ground is still soaked from the hundreds of ice-filled polystyrene crates that were there just hours […]
Treasure Island sits halfway between two very different cities, San Francisco and Oakland, in San Francisco Bay. It’s got a fairy tale name and offers gorgeous views of the city, […]
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.
