From The Basement

From The Basement is a website featuring rather intimate live sessions by bands without the usual constraints and hassles of doing promotional work. The only advertising is for the band and it’s like a breath of fresh air. From the website;

“My own personal goal is that in the future some of these performances might be seen as the truest representation of the state of their artists work, captured in a way that lets their talents speak without the interference of presenters, or audiences.”

There’s some really great bands on there, and really good recordings. My recommended videos are

The Kills – Tape Song (Look look look she’s gorgeous)

Neil Hannon – Our Mutual Friend (He used to be a choir boy you know)

Radiohead- The Gloaming (Thom Yorke piloting a spaceship)

Jarvis Cocker – Black Magic (For his dancing)
