40 movie soundtracks that changed alternative music

Not a HUGE fan of anyone using the term “Alternative Music” but Spin wrote this nice fluffly piece on films with GREAT music, my life was changed by the music used in films like Repo Man, Trainspotting and I certainly am still dealing with the influence of the Drive soundtrack.

Anyhow, it’s a fun, quick read. Check it out.

The GSP agency performances playlist!

Video

Hello, happy Friday.

So, after last week’s performance from Hiatus Kaiyote, I revisited some of the past agency performances and realized that there were a few shows I hadn’t shared yet.

Check the link below for the newest videos, including, Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers, Moon Hooch, Capital Cities, The Polyphonic Spree, Rogue Wave and Guards. If you get through those, you can let it play and see performances by Andrew Bird, The Head And The Heart, Yann Teirsen, The Raveonettes and MANY others.

HUGE thanks to Luke Dillon and the audio crew, to everyone who shot and edited the footage and also to facilities for letting us take over various parts of the agency!

Enjoy!

Arcade Fire LIVE at the YTMA’s

Say what you will, YouTube pulled off a pretty crazy show for the first ever YouTube Music Awards. I’ve got high hopes that this little award show will become a new, more relevant platform for calling attention to acts that are out there getting the views and making waves with actual music fans.
