Live Video: Asobi Seksu

While touring the UK in 2008, Asobi Seksu spent a day at Olympic Studios and made one of the last albums ever set down to tape in that legendary space, where The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Who, Queen and Led Zeppelin all once recorded. The result was a tour- and web-only album, originally called, simply, Acoustic At Olympic Studios. Now officially released as Rewolf, the album features stripped down reworkings of older songs and a cover of Hope Sandoval’s “Suzanne.”

Touring behind this special collection, the typically effects-heavy Asobi Seksu performed as the “Asobi Seksu Acoustic Ensemble,” and played a wonderfully lush set at The Triple Door last month (read the live review here). Before the show, they stopped at KEXP and performed two originals and two covers (the Hope Sandoval song and The Jesus & Mary Chain’s “Never Understand”) live in-studio, and you can watch the videos here now:
