Kraftwerk live in Soest, winter 1970. The earliest surviving concert footage. My favorite part starts at 16:42. You will have others.

Watch Polish free jazz combo cover Queens of the Stone Age

By Patrick on Monday, March 10th, 2014

Actually it’s a bit unfair to reduce Polish musician Gabriele Kulka to just a genre label, so call this whatever you like. A truly memorable & new take on “Keep Your Eyes Peeled” by Queens of the Stone Age from this talented group of Polish musicians.

High-quality video of Glasser performing last Saturday night at Fader Fort

By Patrick on Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

Unbelievably high quality footage of Glasser’s set at the Fader Fort during CMJ last Saturday night. Even more amazing is when the power cut out and she finishes off “Tremel” acapella, totally unfazed (not unphased as some might have it).

Magic Kids “Candy” for Yours Truly

By truepanthersounds on Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

Magic Kids were in the Bay Area for the first time. They played Valentines Day with Girls and Smith Westerns the night before and it was a beautiful show. The next day they cobbled together this orchestra, which features Christopher + Garrett from Girls, Max from Smith Westerns, some friends of someone’s aunt who had a weekend flute club, a real string section and some more random friends to play this early version of Candy for the Yours Truly guys. It was kind of a rainy day but it felt so warm in that room. Hope you enjoy. Video is hosted HERE on your’s truly’s site which also has a nice letter from the band.

The band is leaving for Europe this week and coming back for a tour of the states. Tour dates HERE

Delorean- Real Love Video

By truepanthersounds on Thursday, September 16th, 2010

A few months ago, when talking about the meaning behind the song “Real Love and possible ideas for a video Ekhi said something like “Real love is being in a state of conflict against the outside world”. Focus Creeps took this concept and ran with it, making a beautiful, dreamy and ultimately pretty psychedelic and creepy video for “Real Love”. Enjoy!
