Tegan And Sara
Tegan and Sara each rise to complement the other's vocal strengths. One plays the clenched-jaw bad cop, taking few breaths between her breakneck assault; the other is the softer, cooing good cop. Their songs work off the yin yang seesaw that the Indigo Girls have down pat, but they update the music for a younger demographic by adding Techno beats to the non-traditional genre of Urban Folk.

Tegan And Sara
Runtime: 2 hr 4 minThese twin sisters are an engaging live act and have slowly amassed a sizable following over the past decade and a half. They’ve done it by writing smart, quirky folk-pop tunes that are as emotionally true as they are catchy. Tegan and Sara’s studio albums have given them the luxury of adding accompaniment, but their live performances have been stripped to acoustic guitars, keyboards, and their intuitive vocals. The show recorded here was performed for family and friends at a Vancouver studio, so the sound is excellent and well-controlled. “Relief Next to Me” is nicely detailed. “The Ocean” could be a beatnik’s dream. “I Hear Noises” is exquisite folk, beautifully restrained. “Call It Off” is touching and gentle. “I Won’t Be Left” furiously strums with intention, with the bonus of drums accentuating the new wave pop drive. Their entire catalog is raided to great effect; just hearing the ache in Tegan’s voice should be enough to convince a skeptic.

Live at the Mt. Baker Theatre
Death Cab For Cutie

Live at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel
Ra Ra Riot
Runtime: 29 minEarlier this year, when Ra Ra Riot unleashed their third full-length record, Beta Love, we must admit that we were somewhat apprehensive about their sudden synth pop indulgence. To make such a polarized transition away from their intimate orchestral tunes was surely a shock that many longtime fans were forced to gradually grasp. But we, as have Ra Ra Riot's faithful, have come to appreciate this new, effervescent feel, and all it required was a live Beta Love experience.
We caught Ra Ra Riot's brilliant spectacle down in Austin, Texas during Conflict of Interest's night at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel, and Beta Love skeptics beware, as our video of their entire performance can (and will) make a fan out of the most cynical synth adversary.
Everything Will Change
The Postal Service
Runtime: 1 hr 26 minEverything Will Change is a feature-length documentary concert film of The Postal Service s performance at the Greek Theater in Berkeley, CA during their 2013 reunion tour. A collaboration between Benjamin Gibbard (of Death Cab for Cutie) and Jimmy Tamborello (from Dntel), with Rilo Kiley s Jenny Lewis, The Postal Service released Give Up, their one and only album, in 2003. That record went on to sell over a million copies and most of the band s fans never had the chance to see them perform live. In celebration of the 10-year anniversary of Give Up, the band reunited to tour the world. With never-before-seen live recordings, intimate interviews and backstage footage of the band, Everything Will Change captures one of the nights when everything did change.
