Live Video: Sylvan Esso

It’s the classic peanut butter meets chocolate kind of story. A chance meeting, or really, a shared bill, brought Amelia Meath (of the harmonizing folk trio Mountain Man) and Nick Sanborn (of psychsters Megafaun and his own electronic project, Made of Oak) together. A conversation led to the two sharing their separate talents on aRead more...

Live Video: Ages and Ages & Quilt at Pickathon

We’ve recorded a lot of unique performances during Pickathon over the past few years, but there’s nothing quite like lush orchestration and natural harmonies to complement the gorgeous wooded oasis that is the Bunny Glade.

Live Video: The Both at Bumbershoot Music Lounge

What brought two already well known and respected artists together to collaborate on a new project? The internet, of course. Though Aimee Mann and Ted Leo shared a casual friendship and a liking for each other’s music, they bonded over things “#dumb” on Twitter. Eventually, a 140-character comedic repartee turned into a tour, and aRead more...

As leaders of the so-called Paisley Underground, the LA band carried the sounds of the previous decade, particularly of The Velvet Underground and The Doors, intoRead more...

Live Video: Those Darlins at Pickathon

Nothing like dirtying up a pristine wooded oasis with some gritty rock from Those Darlins. The Nashville band joined us in the Bunny Glade during Pickathon last month for an acoustic set of twang-tinged girl group meets garage rock songs from their latest album, Blur The Line, and a chilling cover of The Crystals’ “ThenRead more...
