ft. Music Videos

Artists are continuing to design and create marvelous pieces of art, often with the hope (rather than the expectation) that those that appreciate and enjoy what they make will support them. As the pandemic continues

& gigs continue to be canceled and postponed, musicians need more support than ever!

(As do some of our most beloved venues!)

If you enjoy what you're watching & listening to, consider sending a donation, buying a new album, joining a musician's monthly subscription program, buying some merch, attending one of their live-streams...there are lots of ways to show the love! Just push the hearts by each video for an option or two!

Thank you so much!!

 

Darlingside

"Ocean Bed"

Join the Boston-based band, Darlingside, for a Distantly Social Session full of their gentle harmonies, pulsing rhythmns, and folky goodness.

Portugal. The Man

"Who's Gonna Stop Me" feat. Weird Al Yankovic

Released Oct. 12th (Indigenous Peoples Day), this new project was created in collaboration with The PTM Foundation - "a platform for artistic collaboration between materialist culture, the arts, and indigenous paradigms."

Jeff Tweedy

"Gwendolyn"

A new single and a new music video by Jeff Tweedy to enjoy during The Weirds!

I had a lot of fun trying to recognize the guest performers.

Lake Street Dive

"Making Do"

Featuring a new song and video by the acclaimed Boston-based band, Lake Street Dive. Exploring themes of social unrest, climate change, and unfathomable uncertainty, this driving song is full of thoughtfulness and strength.

Fleet Foxes

singing "Can I Believe You"

I can't exactly explain what this means, but Fleet Foxes sounds like they've been directly injected with that PNW sound (Robin Pecknold *IS* from Seattle). Also, hands together for Chris Bear on drums (from Grizzly Bear)! YAS.

Fleet Foxes

singing "Jara"

Fleet Foxes just released a new album at the end of September, called Shore.... YAAAAAAY!

Here's my favorite track so far from the new album.

This Is the Kit

"This is What You Did"

A new single from This Is the Kit's album!

Release date- Oct. 23, 2020

A banjo/sax/folk musical fusion!

National Youth Folk Ensemble

playing "Canny Hobby Elliot" & "Andrew Carr's"

After a summer zoom session, the National Youth Folk Ensemble, based out of England, created a few new arrangements to share some of what they'd learned!

Dodie

singing "Anything"

Dodie has this gently powerful, delicately complex vibe that doesn't feel totally comparable to other musicians. She's like....the opposite of Bjork? Idk.

Give it a listen if ya feel like it :)

André Brunet 

Okay, so I admit it, this video is not new; it's a few years old.

But. I AM OBSESSED.

So I'm posting it anyway. EEEEEE ENJOYYYY

Omer Ashano

playing "Tigrinya Lullaby"

I'm new to Omer Ashano's music, and after discovering this Sept. release, thought it'd be a great addition to this page! Here's an original piece, largely influenced by Ethiopian, Eritrean and jazz music.

Rhiannon Giddens

A stunning new composition by Rhiannon Giddens,

Goat Rodeo Sessions

ft. Aoife O'Donovan

Presenting a haunting and mesmerizing new music video by Goat Rodeo Sessions. One of my favorite music-listening experiences is when it feels like you can hear each musician responding to each other. Worth a listen or 3.

Straight from their homes to ours, Imar has released a new virtual video for our enjoyment!

Get-a-watchin'!

Everest Witman

& Thierry Clouette

Driving, exciting, and mesmerizing playing from these two

Hopefully they'll make some more!!

Elsie & Ethan

"Stay with Me"

Elsie Gawler and Ethan Stokes Tischler perform a song titled "Stay with Me," written by Ethan. A beautiful love song with gentle harmonies that pour of your speakers little warm milk.

The Wilderness Yet

"A Bruton Farmer"

You know that feeling when you're like, "gosh, I'm in the mood for a really good murder ballad"? Well lookie here! The Click play to hear to be moved by wonderful music

+ a murder acted out in shadow puppets!

Brian Finnegan

I LOVE THIS BAND SO MUCH.

Absolutely phenomenal super-group of brilliant trad musicians playing the most lovely music and you can catch a wonderful

glimpse of that in this vid

Deep Sea Diver

ft. Sharon Van Etten

The first time I saw this band a few years ago, I was *immediately* hooked. Indie rock meets grunge meets amazingness. Plus, this new track features Sharon Van Etten, who is also absolutely sublime. 

Maggie

sung by Sam Amidon

Here's new single off of Sam Amidon's new album, whch is set to release in Oct. 2020. This track is hauntingly delicious.

Singing, working, and keeping company with a pup.

This song has always felt rather haunting to me, and this rendition feels no different. Beautiful.
