ZZ Ward

Year: 2013

Runtime: 00:12:46

To listen to ZZ Ward is to hear two distinct worlds colliding in explosive fashion. See, the native Oregonian's first love is The Blues. As a teenager, she initially found her voice performing in her father's blues band. College though would introduce ZZ to hip hop, her voice peppering the hooks and choruses of local musicians in Eugene OR. Eventually, she would find ways to embrace both sides of her musical identity; a profound feat on display all over her recent debut album, Til the Casket Drops. Recently, ZZ brought a few of that album's choice tracks by Baeble, soothing over the nitty gritty rockers in us in the process. With sideman Erick Walls by her side and a classic fedora cropped neatly on top, the 24 year old musician performed stripped down versions of "Put the Gun Down", "Charlie Ain't Home", and "365 Days". With her timeless, smoky voice, dusty blues-infused rhythms, and some serious, hip hop swagger, we think you'll find ZZ Ward to be a unique force to be reckoned with.

    Beach Fossils

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 17 min

    The release of their self-titled LP in 2010 introduced the world to Beach Fossils' Dick Dale twanged, New Wave inspired surf rock: a frenetic sound, although then unique, has now become quite prevalent in the indie scene. But where this Brooklyn-based four-piece set themselves apart was through their Johnny Rotten-esque turbulent attitutes: a trait that's been upheld in their 2013 sophomore folow-up, Clash the Truth. Led by the melancholic growl of Dustin Payseur, Beach Fossils embody a liveliness and urgency that's shared by a majority of their generation. We witnessed this energy live in Austin at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel. We suggest sticking around til the final minutes to see the extent of Beach Fossils' volatility - where an explosive bout ends with a crippled drum kit.

    Caveman

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 26 min

    We weren't shy in our no-holds-barred description of Brooklyn-hailing Caveman's self-titled sophomore LP as a musical opiate that we've boastfully abused. They possess an intoxicating musical progression of sounds that we've become accustomed to in many of our favorite indie-folky-harmonied-rock groups with a simple richness that elicits a sense of sonic meditation equivalent to peers like Grizzly Bear and Local Natives.

    Our New York neighbors joined us down at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel and gave Austin a heavy dosage of their sonic sedative, and we're pleased to bring you the performance in full.

  • A Session With Foals

    Foals

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 12 min

    Being 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 at The Bowery Ballroom

    Local Natives

    Year: 2010

    Runtime: 32 min

    In the exclusive concert performance video we captured on the first night of the band's stint in NYC, the synergetic spirit that binds the band together is evident enough. Clearly, this is not a tribe who are comfortable with their work merely being good enough. Self confessed "control freaks;" the band and their music is the result of a communal creative process. Watching their interpretation of the Talking Heads' "Warning Sign," it's no great stretch to envision the band spending whole evenings working through single vocal passages. The rhythmic pounce of " Wide Eyes" offers a picture of the band studiously aligning cut and paste, percussive contributions so that each hit can synch with one another. And "Sun Hands" speaks to the band's efforts in holding back during one moment, so that another one can ultimately be that much more explosive. Dramatic, endearing, energetic, and impressive: we know you're going to love what is one of the most exciting bands we have ever had the pleasure to capture.

    Passenger

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 18 min

    Mike 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.

  • A Backyard Session with Deer Tick

    Deer Tick

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 15 min

    Following their weekend residency as Newport Folk Festival's house band, Deer Tick shot down to Manhattan to perform for the Baeble crew in our backyard. The Providence locals hosted and headlined the festival's three consecutive after parties at the Newport Blues Cafe, and on the third evening, the group performed their forthcoming studio record Negativity in its entirety. The following day, frontman John McCauley told us that he couldn't wait until September 23rd, which would be the eve of the album's release. Fast forward a month and a half, and here we all are today, session video in tow, with the impending release of their superb, fifth record less than 24 hours away.

  • Live At World Cafe

    Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros

    Year: 2012

    Runtime: 29 min

    We haven't ever met a band quite like Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros. Their self-professed embrace of child-like wonder is the piston that powers their music, their sunny disposition, and their recognition that every moment is a once in a life time opportunity to create and connect...with themselves, with their wildly enthusiastic followers, or something universally bigger. That shows sell out in their wake everywhere the eleven piece band play is no big surprise. Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros are special, getting more than just a kick out of playing the peppy, folk creations of their debut Up From Below and their recent follow-up Here.

    Recently we had the privilege to spend a bit of time with the band during a concert stop for the fine folks of WXPN in Philadelphia. We spoke at length with Edward's bandleader Alexander Ebert and are posting a series of videos all month long. But we also had the opportunity to aim our cameras at the band's performance. Piling all eleven members of the band on stage, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros showcased a handful of their new, more meditative song fare from Here, as well as made sure to pepper in a few crowd favorites from Up From Below (for old time's sake...). It was a special opportunity. Today we're thrilled to be releasing the full, uninterrupted edit of the band's acoustic-ish performance in Philadelphia. We think you'll find there's nothing else quite like this out there.

  • Live at McCarren Park

    Deerhunter

    Year: 2008

    Runtime: 47 min

    Oftentimes at live shows, musicians of the indie-rock variety get so caught up in all the strut and swagger that goes along with rock music that they forget to be fun. Deerhunter are not that, as evidenced by their performance here at McCarren Park Pool. On the contrary, front man Bradford Cox is a pretty damn funny guy. And while he may look like a young Thurston Moore without the flowing hair, Deerhunter opt out of your typical art-rock arrogance and instead go for a sonically sound show complete with a driving rhythm section and extra catchy guitar riffs. There's even a nutty vocal spot from Cole Alexander of The Black Lips. Top it off with some psychedelic effects and a pretty rhythm guitarist in cheerleader garb, and you've got yourself a Deerhunter performance that's way too fun to miss out on.

  • Live at The Cutting Room

    Alt-J

    Year: 2012

    Runtime: 22 min

    There 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 M Studio

    Dawes

    Year: 2011

    Runtime: 17 min

    Los 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 Launch Pad

    The Wild Feathers

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 26 min

    Imagine pointing some beautiful, vintage Mustang convertible down a Middle American highway for a moment. There's a sea of endless prairies and plains stretching out around you. The road; a streak of concrete into the horizon, where the only evidence of civilization exists clustered around gas stations and dive bars at the interstate off ramp. Curiosity gets the best of you and with a flick of the turn signal you're veering off the road right for that roadhouse a place where bikers, truck drivers, and local meat/metal heads, bad ass farmers' daughters, and working-class factory folk all gather when the sun goes down. It's kind of an ultimate American image, right? Shrouded in Red, White, and Blue, cheap beer, and the stench of strong whiskey. And of course there's a band; a swaggering, semi-drunk cyclone of country, blues, folk, and rock whipping all of those colorful characters into an absolute fury. Requires a vivid imagination, I know. But the band? They're very real. They're The Wild Feathers and they're pretty much here to kick your ass.

    Flume

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 32 min

    Prior to our event partnership with Hype Machine, we had never explored the idea of shooting a DJ. But after experiencing the up-and-comers who showed face at this year's Hype Hotel, you may see us venturing into the EDM scene more often. After last week's concert release featuring the stellar brothersome UK duo Disclosure, today we're bringing you to the opposite side of the globe for a taste of what Syndney, Australia's been dancing to - FLUME. His real name is Harley Streten, but his musical project suits his moniker precisely as his tone possesses the natural feel of an aquatic flow compacted by a dubby pulse.

    During the I Guess I'm Floating/YVYNYL party, FLUME transported Hype Hotel on a swirling trip through his mind-bending beats and electronic mystique, all which can be heard on his debut, self-titled studio album, released late last fall. In our 30-minute concert capture, the young Aussie synth savant will alter your equilibrium, often making you wonder exactly what state of matter you're rushing through - be it water or atmosphere - it's electrifying.

  • Live at The Fader

    Atlas Sound

    Year: 2007

    Runtime: 33 min

    Atlas Sound is the solo project of Bradford Cox, the striking and eccentric vocalist for experimental indie rocker act Deerhunter. Cox was born in 1982 in Athens, Georgia, a town whose burgeoning music scene greatly influenced the singer. He identified with the B-52's while growing up, particularly the late Ricky Wilson, and co-founded Deerhunter with drummer/keyboardist Moses Archuleta in 2001.Headlining Friday's edition of the FADER Sideshow, Cox whipped up a relaxing collage of terrestrial vocals and hypnotic Fender guitar, all flowing handsomely through miles of metal boxes and twisted wires. Though his output is organic at its source, Cox guides his music by higher powered, synthetic undercurrents, creating something that is both empowering and otherworldly.

    Little Green Cars

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 32 min

    We'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 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.

    Posse is so unbelievably cool. With dreamy soundscapes and stark, deadpan vocals, Posse makes perfect rainy day music. They write the kind of songs that would honestly fit well over some self-effacing John Cusack monologue. Their sound is signature Seattle, but not pretentious in the slightest. With lyrics so layered and melodies so subtle, Posse’s songs take up a lot of real estate in your brain and refuse to leave.

The band's vocals vary between performances: while live vocals are handled mostly by Ninja (with Tsuchida and Fukami-Taylor also singing some solos), vocals on record also feature sampled and guest voices.
