Alex Winston – Houdini & On The Mountain session

Man, hurts when you figure it out. It hurts when you figure it out. I’m a sucker for nearly all the “musician playing music in odd places” video series. Black Cab Sessions, La Blogotheque’s Take Away Shows, NPR’s Tiny Desk, and hell, even Live from Daryl’s House. On The Mountain is a solid new addition […]

VIDEO: The Death Set – They Come To Get Us

These guys looks much improved from when I saw them open for Girl Talk some 5 years ago. Take a look at The Death Set‘s video for “They Come To Get Us”, with an homage to movies like Back To The Future, Godzilla and more. Guaranteed to be part of a network’s upfront presentation at […]
