I recently discovered La Blogothèque, a blog/website that films bands and musicians performing live in candid and unusual settings. This site has already been around for six years and has been featured by the New York Times, MTV and CNN. This might suggest that it’s not exactly prime blog material, but it’s new to me, I think it’s awesome, and I’m 50% in charge here. The site itself claims to “change the way people experience music”, bringing viewers “beautiful, rare and intimate sessions with your favourite artists, and the ones you are soon to fall in love with.” Never before has an online advertisement rung so true. Arcade Fire crammed into a freight elevator, complete with strings, singing Neon Bible and Wake up; Yeasayer singing a capella on a crowded subway; Beirut wandering the streets of Paris, playing in alleyways and banging on garbage cans… Needless to say I fell deeply, deeply in love with bands I thought were already some of my favourites and can’t wait to watch every video featured on the site.
