Dawes--"A Little Bit of Everything"

I just stumbled across this. Taylor Goldsmith and a couple of his cronies from Dawes performing an acoustic version of "A Little Bit of Everything," a cut off their fantastic 2011 album Nothing is Wrong. Absolutely beautiful rendition of a tremendous song, and well worth at least three viewings.

Vids Worth A View - Dan Mangan

Today we stumbled across a beautiful video of Dan Mangan and crew playing two acoustic songs in a river! The background of the wilderness perfectly matches Mangan's voice and style. He plays "Rows of Houses" and "Leaves, Trees, Forest" of his new fantastic album, Oh Fortune. Enjoy!

One of our favorites, LA quintet Milo Greene has caught my eye with a beautiful video of them playing live in someone's living room. This video definitely speaks to how exquisite the band is live. Catch them on tour this fall with The Civil Wars! Check it out! You can hear the studio recording of "Autumn Tree" below.

Today, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have released a new music video to "Otherside Remix (feat. Fences)" This is one of the most heartfelt rap songs I have ever heard and the music video is a perfect companion to it. Check it out!

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis released their single "Wings" a few months back and after raising $20,000 from fans and teaming up with awesome director Zia Mohajerjasbi, they have finally released the music video! It's excellently done and is a perfect companion to such a great deep song. Enjoy!

Reviewed - The Civil Wars with James Vincent McMorrow

Anthology, San Diego, CA

Last night I heard three of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard in concert. And they were all in the same show! I had the pleasure of catching The Civil Wars in concert at the intimate Anthology venue. But first, and definitely not least, James Vincent McMorrow took the stage to open for the Nashville-based duo. Running through most of his debut album, Early In The Morning (Buy on Amazon), McMorrow kept the show simple with just him and his guitar. His uniquely beautiful voice hushed the crowd and left them in awe. I didn't think it could get much better until he closed with an incredible, completely unplugged version of "If I Had A Boat".

While nobody in the audience wanted to see McMorrow leave the stage, Joy Williams and John Paul White of The Civil Wars won the hearts of the audience after singing their first word. With voices that McMorrow described as being "genetically modified to go together," their harmonies were out of this world. The two were meant to sing together, putting on a completely flawless show. They played nearly all their songs, and even put their own twist on incredible covers of "You Are My Sunshine," "I Want You Back," and "Billie Jean". If you have the chance to see this show live, you will not regret it. They will tear the venue down. Buy their album, Barton Hollow here.

Our friends over at Fleet Foxes have released this video in anticipation of their forthcoming sophomore release Helplessness Blues out May 3. "Grown Ocean" will be on the album, and if it's an indication of the record's sound, I'm already more than excited. Take a gander!

Dr. Dog - "Shadow People"

In this installment, we turn to Philadelphia easy rockers Dr. Dog with a cut off of their latest album Shame Shame. This is a wonderful, curious little video. And if you only wanna watch a few seconds, I recommend 2:00-2:03. I want to receive a christmas card from that man.
