Live at M Studio
Runtime: 17 minLos Angeles rock quartet Dawes are conformed by a great, American musical tradition. Lurking in the folds of their amplified crunch of guitars, road ready rhythms, and soulful blasts of organ lay stories that are weary and lonesome...the product of a life lived out of a suitcase, traveling between far flung places. Laurel Canyon, Woodstock, Haight-Ashbury... You know these places, you know their significance. What started with bands like Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan and The Band lives on in Dawes' snarly riffs and stories. Rock and roll's past colliding with the present in the best way possible
That's Dawes, that's their live show, that's their latest release Nothing Is Wrong. Here though, in our latest session vid, the band try on something different...something a bit more informal and intimate. With nothing more than their mighty harmonies and an acoustic guitar, the band gives a glimpse into their most private world with three cuts from Nothing Is Wrong, emulating those moments when guitars are pulled out on tour buses, in hotel rooms, or quiet backstage retreats. After all, Dawes are a traveling band, the kind of group that can't go without that pounding pavement rumbling under their tires. The road, after all, is the greatest musical tradition.
Live at the Lincoln Theater
The Milk Carton Kids
Runtime: 1 hr 13 minIn the past year The Milk Carton Kids have been nominated for a Grammy, appeared on Austin City Limits and Prairie Home Companion multiple times, performed at the Americana Music Awards, and appeared at T-Bone Burnett and the Coen Bros triumphant Inside Llewyn Davis concert at New York's Town Hall, later televised in a Showtime special. As the thousands of fans who have seen the band can attest, their live performance and between-song banter add a charming counterpoint to the music. Preserving the band's unique show for posterity, Live From Lincoln Theatre will appeal to both fans who have seen the band and want to relive the experience and the thousands of new fans encountering them on NPR and elsewhere who have yet to see them. live.

A Backyard Session with Brett Dennen
Runtime: 13 minSmoke And Mirrors is an odd title to sketch across the cover of Brett Dennen's 5th album. The tall, laid-back Californian has always brewed a batch of heartfelt, honest songwriting; a quality that seems more at the forefront than ever before. Born in the mountains around his cabin home, the three songs here bring with them a certain rustic ease. I suppose that's just what happens when your writing sessions are bookended by long hikes and cool dips in the lake. But the most obvious quality is just how personal Brett gets here, belting out anthems about staying true to ones' self, reminding us of the danger of overthinking things, or just declaring an anonymous love for someone. No Smoke, No Mirrors...just simple, acoustic honesty in our latest session.

Dust and Thunder: Live in South Africa
Mumford & Sons
Runtime: 1 hr 31 minDUST AND THUNDER chronicles the meeting of South Africa with their long-standing favorites, Mumford & Sons. A British band in huge demand, and a country extremely excited to welcome them. With a coachload of their close musical friends brought along for the ride, this exquisitely shot film captures the tour's conclusion with two nights in the beautiful Pretorian outback.
Airing new songs from Wilder Mind and the Johannesburg mini-album (a collaboration with Baaba Maal, The Very Best and Beatenburg) for the first time, and watching the expansive crowds hollering back the old favorites, DUST AND THUNDER gets to the very heart of what makes Mumford & Sons such a special act, with the stunning beauty of the Pretorian outback as their backdrop.
Captured with gusto by award-winning live specialist Dick Carruthers, the result is an exciting and emotional document and a truly spectacular concert film that may well go down as their finest.

Live at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel
Runtime: 23 minThe music created by Dublin alternative four-piece Kodaline will hijack a diverse assortment of souls. Their debut EP, released last year, featured four songs, all of which offered their own marque of sincerity stretching from the indie rock simplicity of "Perfect World" to the highest reaches of the arena-suited "All I Want", where frontman Steve Garrigan squeezes hearts with a voice comparable only to that of Coldplay's Chris Martin. Kodaline is a perfect emblem of a band that will undoubtedly explode in the U.S. as their genre melding music is accessible to fans of any palate.
Baeble captured the Irishmen during their recent trip to the States when they made a profound pit stop at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel down in Austin this March. Their debut full-length studio album, In A Perfect World is due out next month, June 10th, and we're confident this concert capture will be the perfect icebreaker with your new favorite band: Kodaline.

Live at Baeble HQ
Runtime: 18 minMike Rosenberg's crafted some of the very best observational songwriting of the year with his lovely new album, All the Little Lights. It's a lush, acoustic collection he's complemented with the perfect epithet in Passenger. "The lyrics and the stories," explains the young, Brighton-born-and-bred musician, "are told from the perspective of a passenger just watching the world go by." For his stirring session in our music room, Mike spun tales of a lonely afternoon on a riverbank in Glasgow Scotland ("Feather On the Clyde"), the hard appreciation that spawns only in the wake of personal loss ("Let Her Go") and a reminder that the present moment is everything ("Life's for the Living"). It's an emotional performance; a journey you'll be grateful to be a passenger aboard.
