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.
Great song and there’s something familiar about that video…
Interesting use of camera techniques in this new video for John Murray, I’m sure you’ll recognize the locations as he basically makes a big circle around our office on California street.
Just a heads up, the wonderful, feisty, BRIT award winning Kate Nash is coming to play for us on Friday 11/22 @1PM in the third floor hang out.
A great way to start your weekend, please make time to check her out, she headlines The Fillmore that night.
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!
Really well done, exciting to see some of this archival footage for the first time… click HERE.
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.
You can’t un-see this, but If you close your eyes, it’s actually pretty great.
For those of you who made the Flaming Lips/Tame Impala/White Denim show last night, a little more awesomeness from Wayne and Co.
