It has been a while since I posted last. Excuse the hiatus. I'm sure you all missed my posts sooo much. =p Anyway, Ashley has inspired me to begin posting a bit again, so here it goes. Ready....

Over the last couple years, I have seen the birth of several efforts to invite music artists to perform live to record in interesting spaces including bathrooms, taxi cars, staircases, swimming pools, as well as more conventional locations. I love these projects like LiveDaily and Black Cab, just to name a couple. Today I came across another one of these projects done by le-Hiboo, a French group that I haven't actually found much info about. They have a great variety of artists, though many are French, and there are artists of many styles. The camera work is beautiful, and the artists perform in all sorts of different spaces, including the swimming pool I mentioned earlier. I will just leave you with a couple samples that I really love, and shut up now.

Basia Bulmat. She is fantastic.

Yeasayer (Sunrise &Rome)

They say crazy people are drawn to music because it soothes them. Well I think I'm really drawn to Yeasayer because they successfully embed crazy into odd melodic and catchy music. This is what I'm enjoying now, and I hope you guys enjoy it too.


From All Hour Cymbals (their debut)

From Odd Blood (their most recent album)

Memory Tapes-Bicycle

5 and a half months after graduation, I still find myself sometimes riding the chill wave.
I hope that you guys are too.
