Live at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel
Little Green Cars
Runtime: 32 minWe're not going out on a limb by saying Glassnote Records has an eye for selecting acts that quench our insatiable cravings for folk rock (just ask Marcus Mumford). A recent addition to their roster comes in the form of a group of five kids from Dublin who are collectively known as Little Green Cars. The band is fronted by the unsettled stare of Stevie Appleby and the stoic gaze of Faye O'Leary, who together guide each of the group's intimate harmonizations into their own boistrous sing-a-long ballads.
With the release of of their debut LP, Absolute Zero, coming in April, these young folks took a trip down to Austin, Texas to perform at Conflict of Interest's night at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel, where we were armed and ready with a production crew to capture one of our favorite new bands for you to enjoy.
Live at Spiegeltent Festival
Runtime: 1 hr 11 minAs the Godfather of alt-rock and founder and frontman of Dinosaur Jr., J Mascis hardly needs an introduction. Touring on the back of his first solo studio album, Several Shades of Why, Mascis delivers his trademark laconic guitar riffs with an acoustic delicacy. With beautiful, raw vocals sung in his signature style, this is J Mascis laid bare.
Live at The Music Hall Of Williamsburg
Runtime: 37 minSummer 2011 saw the release of The Rip Tide on Condons own Pompeii Label, Beiruts first proper LP since The Flying Club Cup. Written in isolation during a snowy upstate winter, the album marked a stark change in emotional direction, that is to say, inward. Reflecting less on the travels and travails borne of the wanderlust struck musician, instead, The Rip Tide has crystallized the sounds of Beiruts past into a cohesive and remarkable whole, all while maintaining the unmistakable aesthetic that has brought them around the world, and home again.
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.
In the Deep Shade
Runtime: 1 hr 28 minConor Masterson's film In the Deep Shade is not a definitive career-spanning documentary of The Frames. Nor is it a fly-on-the-wall expose or an us-against-the-world hero saga. It is, simply put, a stark portrait of an extraordinary band, filmed during their 20th anniversary tour. In the Deep Shade examines the ever-evolving relationship between five musicians who've known each other for many years. That's the story, and in its understated way, it's an uncommon one.
