And lastly, here is a concert review I did for an Alejandro Escovedo show that took place in Rochester NY this week. It’s at a lower quality than I wanted and isn’t quite up to par editing-wise, but I wanted to test something new and I didn’t want this to gather dust any longer than it had to. So, enjoy!
So here’s my latest video composition, which is an album review of Future Islands and their March 25th album “Singles”. It’s the first of two videos that will come out today(with the latter due out at some point tonight probably), but I’m very excited to do another pre-release music review!
A new reinterpretation! While I was once known by ThisDogAteMyVlogs in this neck of the woods, I’m casting off the stagnation to go under the knife for a who…
Just wanna pass it along again that my main creative outlet on Youtube that’s just a couple of weeks old now could use every bit of support in it’s infancy! I spent over 4 years doing this on a different channel, but I wanted to shed my old skin and try some new ideas. In a sense I’m trying to make this operation a more streamlined and bigger, so…. needless to say every little bit helps! :)
So here’s the beginning of my little end of the week creative capper, in which I take the soon to be released The War On Drugs record “Lost In The Dream”, review it, and put out something fun just a little bit before this is even supposed to be due out. Enjoy!
Well well, it looks like I may ACTUALLY be back to really performing these album review videos strongly again. I don’t know, I still feel like I”m knocking the dust off of things, but when there’s a St Vincent album in the world that still needs reviewing, well then I gotta see it done! So here it is, a review of Annie Clark’s self-titled latest…..
So, I’m doing reviews again! It has literally almost been a year since the last one I actually sat down to do, but since I’ve moved to a new channel I’m newly inspired and here it is! I inaugurate things with Band of Horses and their new live album Acoustic at the Ryman!
Then in this video I took a break from attempting to be a film critic with a dash of music involved, and instead went back to the main root of why I do any of this. For my subject, I devote the time to talking about William Basinski’s “The Disintegration Loops”, which is one of the best and most fascinating musical stories as I’ve heard in quite some time.
It’s honestly really incredible, and must be read and heard to be believed. Check out the video over on Youtube for links for more info about what this whole thing is that I’m rambling on about!
And in this video I attempted to do the same thing for Inside Llewyn Davis as I did with Her, essentially having the same results. But if it’s one thing I’d want to carry over it’s the fact I had a lot of enjoyment talking about these movies I really liked, there was at least decent enthusiasm, and great music as the cherry on the sundae! In fact it’s a travesty the soundtrack wasn’t nominated for any awards, something I definitely would have mentioned if I had filmed it a bit sooner!
Here’s a video in which I attempt to review the Joaquin Phoenix/Scarlett Johansson/Amy Adams movie Her which just widely broke out into theatres on January 10th. However without a filter, the results are…. a bit mixed. However it’s a great movie, and has some lovely songs in it as well that you should check out!
