Video Day #tzaupbeat

It’s Saturday! Royksopp & Robyn kill it once again, with Monument (stunning). A new video for The Juan MacLean for A Simple Design. Basement Jaxx have a new video for We Are Not Alone.  

Bonus today is a new video from Diplo, Yellow Claw and LNY TNZ.  Diplo has to be one of the hardest working men in  music (he is everywhere).

Bandcamp's Ethan Diamond on Music Collecting

This explains why I see streaming services like Spotify or Beats as only accompaniments to my actual collection.

Video Day #tzachill

The Modern Electric with a fun new video for David Bowie Save Us All!  Ryan Hemsworth with a new video for Snow in Newark (new album out Nov. 4th).  Son Lux has stark and intense (NSFW) video for Easy.

Bonus this week is a new video for Coulda Been My Love by Foxygen - who just released their second album.

Yelle (10/17/14)

Yelle is a great pop band from France.  I’ve been liking their stuff for years, but this was my first time catching them live.  Seeing this show at the Grog Shop has just cemented these guys as one of my favorite pop bands!  Lively, theatrical, and knows how to get a crowd moving (a huge change from the Beachland a couple nights before).  All around party.

OK Go (10/15/14)

Second night in a row at the Beachland, but in the Ballroom this time.  Got a group of friends together to see OK Go, but not before seeing Rollergirl performing is big opening slot for them.  He was great as usual, but also as usual, the concert crowd was stiff as a board.  Not all of them, but this phenomenon is still a mystery to me.

Rollergirl (10/15/14)

OK Go was everything you’d expect.  Lots of tech and graffiti… I feel the same for their live show, as I do with their recorded music.  I think they’re fun… but that’s about it.  I don’t know if I’m too distracted by the schtick to connect with the music, or if it isn’t connect-worthy.  Whatever, these guys are always a party.

Gardens & Villa (10/14/14)

What a great show!!  Their 80’s throwback pop/electronic sound is just superb - and current at the same time.  These guys are A+.

I should technically mention that Alex G opened the show (meh).

Hidden Cameras have a new video out for Carpe Jugular.  Things lighten up a bit with tUe-yArDs new video for Real Thing. Caribou has a new (and kinda sad) video for Our Love.

Bonus:  A new video for Liam Finn, who I’ve seen and really enjoyed, but this video is, something else...
