When I was researching for my Sidi Touré piece, I came across La Blogotheque. It’s french (as are most cool things), and all the videos are all shot by filmmaker Vincent Moon. The website has recently been updated, so I can’t find the easy “translate” button anymore, but the most important thing is the videos. If you scroll down and click “Voir tous les concerts à emporter” (or, View all the take away shows) you’ll see a whole list of the videos he’s made with different bands and artists like Real Estate , Bon Iver , and Phoenix . And the three-part video he did with Sidi Touré is absolutely gorgeous. This is one of my favorite places to find new music, or return to some of my old-standbys in a totally new way.
