La Blogotheque's "Take Away Show" series is a smart concept: Take artists out of their usual performance spaces, put them in front of new scenery, and let that become part of the recording. It helps, of course, that their displaced environments are the scenic streets and houses of France.
Their site is "kinda" offline at the moment (for me at least). So, I'm going to describe the point of this all really simple:
Indie artists (some, famous (like the Shins), some, aren't)
and you get Blogotheque:
A great way to find new great music. I highly recommend the Grizzly Bear video, The National, Islands (the second one is pretty funny), and if you are in a summer feeling mood, then you should defiantly check out I'm From Barcelona (he isn't).
Haven't watched them all, some are very dull, other's are just out of this world good.
The newest one, is Andrew Bird, and I know there are some Andrew Bird's fans out there.
