Alt-J Concert Films
Live at The Cutting Room
Runtime: 22 minThere is something truly unique about the music that pours out of the four lads who comprise the experimental, indie outfit, Alt-J. It has a sparkling, melodious quality in the way the guitars fizzle in a bed of digital mist. But there are odd chanting harmonies, crunchy riffs that'll snap your teeth, and, most notably, a disjointed, percussive approach that's mightier than all. It's all helped to stew a bit of a phenomenon on the band's side of the Atlantic. Why just today the band snatched themselves a nomination for the prestigious Mercury Prize for their debut, An Awesome Wave (which is just about the best way to describe what lies within). Here in the US, the band is currently spreading the gospel one city at a time. Recently, that meant a quick stop at The Cutting Room Studios in NYC for a live-to-air session with our friends at KEXP Seattle. In its' aftermath, we're obviously converted...and we don't think you stand a chance either.

Live at Rockwood Music Hall
Two Door Cinema Club
Runtime: 13 minTwo Door Cinema club exhibit the same knack for chance that propelled them to the stage in the very beginning, experimenting ever so slightly by trimming the intense rhythms, dashing tempos, and inventive flourishes of "Undercover Martyn", "Cigarettes In The Theatre", and "Something Good Can Work" down into acoustic roots. The result is a set of songs that places emphasis on the melodies, harmonies, and story lines that drive at the heart of what this trio does. Call it another chance that, to no one's surprise, pays off in the form of this candid Guest Apartment style session with Two Door Cinema Club.
Live at the O2

A Session With Foals
Runtime: 12 minBeing from the rain-ridden lands of England, Foals are used to a different kind of festival environment: generally speaking, frontman Yannis Philippakis described them as "mud and wellies" ordeals. So we're sure they were quite pleased to travel halfway around the world to the California desert to perform for Coachella's music-hungry crowds. Prior to taking to the stage in Indio, however, Foals made a pit stop at our little poolside bungalow to perform a Festival Fever Session featuring songs off their highly-acclaimed, recent full-length Holy Fire. While you might have already seen the band's in-the-flesh transformation of "My Number" into a slow-burning beaut, we've expanded the session to include the subtle closer "Moon".
Live @ Garorock Festival 2017
Runtime: 1 hr 9 minThe German duet is back and better than ever! Milky Chance is the success story of two school friends, Clemens Rehbein and Philipp Dausch. After a long break, 2017 marks the release of a second, long-waited, album "Blossom". And, for the public, finally the occasion to discover live these new compositions, mixing rock, folk and electro pop. With reggae vibrations that can rub shoulders with house elements, Milky Chance has one of the most singular sounds. With the presence of musicians on stage, and if we believe the listening of the new record, we can expect more electric concerts, more electronic and even more energetic than in the past!
