Video: Dirty Projectors “Gun Has No Trigger” (Live at Williamsburg Music Hall)

Today marks the release of Dirty Projectors‘ sensational new LP Swing Lo Magellan on Domino Records.  Yesterday, Pitchfork posted Grayson Currin’s phenomenal review and named the album “Best New Music”, proving that the music blogging behemoth still, occasionally, gets it right. Last night, The Bowery Presents, offered fans the opportunity to live stream the band’s performance at Williamsburg Music Hall via YouTube (watch the entire show). I watched, slack-jawed, from my computer in Indianapolis, struggling to comprehend how the vocals could be so pitch perfect throughout.

Below, watch Dirty Projectors’ rendition of Swing Lo Magellan‘s lead single “Gun Has No Trigger.” The video is just a snippet of what has quickly become one of my favorite releases of the year. Watch as frontman Dave Longstreth careening vocals wobble confidently over the hypnotic siren’s call of the background singers.

Video: Father John Misty (Live at KEXP)

In between twitter rants and releasing one of my personal favorite albums this year in Fear Fun, Josh Tillman aka Father John Misty had some time to drop by the KEXP studios in Seattle to record a live session.  And guess what?  It’s 25 minutes of solid gold sound.  So kick off your 3-day weekend with your recreation of your choice and some Father John.

Video: Tedeschi Trucks Band “Everybody’s Talkin'” (Harry Nilsson Cover)

Veteran readers of this blog (all three of you) know that I am a big-time Derek Trucks fan. My proclivity for the blues, particularly the slide variety, has led to a belief that Trucks is the greatest living guitarist. He wields his instrument as an extension of himself in a way that’s unlike any other artist that I’ve had the pleasure to witness first hand. Below, watch Tedeschi Trucks Band‘s rendition of the Harry Nilsson classic “Everybody’s Talkin’.”  The song is featured as the title track of the band’s new live album, released today. Grab tickets to Tedeschi Trucks Band at Murat Theatre on May 30 in Indianapolis.
