You can watch almost anything on the internet these days. Like this stupid person, or this incredibly lucky person, or this hedgehog walking through the grass listening to the XX. There’s also a plethora of great music that you can watch on the internet these days like Tiny Desk Concerts, La Blogotheque, and YouTube is just packed with personal video from shaky, drunk concert-goers the world over. Not to mention, Grimey’s is going to broadcast the in-store Girls performance across America at 5pm (Central) tonight!
Yesterday, I heard about a new local project called Live & Reel (run by Reel Recording and Sinizine), and I knew that I needed to let you know about it. Live & Reel is a video series featuring live, genuine, mostly acoustic, in-studio performances, representing the quality of the independent music scene in Nashville. It is just the kind of thing that we are focused on here, and I have to say I am thrilled to see this new series. It’s an awesome medium for you to get to know some local independent artists.
The first installment includes Nashville’s Natalie Prass and Evan P. Donohue (both will be at Soundland next week). I’ve attached the videos from these sessions below, and I’ve included the links to download the tracks for free. This is an awesome development for Nashville, and I have to agree with Nashville Cream by saying “Good lookin’ out, bros!”
