ze + grizzly bear = pure joy! hmm they are both brooklyn based... do i sense a collaboration in the future? :)

Wow - Beautiful and so musical. They are very good. Those are some of the most awesome music videos I've seen since the advent of music videos/Mtv.

Remember waiting for the daily showing of 'Thriller'?

Recapture the excitement from the Indian remake:
I love the combination of Michael Jackson/Indian Dance movement.

That was point-blank mesmerizing, both the song and the filming. Gorgeous. Simple. Effective.

You can actually listen to Grizzly Bear's album Yellow House on their website:

They look sickly.

I like. I wish more people would walk down the street or stand on corners and sing.

Posted by: gatheringofeagles at March 17, 2007 7:45 AM

Perfect. Just exactly perfect.

And you gotta love it when the feast moves.

Wow that's actually pretty good, those guys have some talent

There's a Girl Talk remix of this song that's quite awesome, and available here: http://www.nialler9.com/blog/2007/01/13/girl-talk-vs-grizzly-bear/

If you get a chance, check out department of eagles. (lead singer of Grizzly bear (now) is 1/2 of DoE).

Their LP was freakin audio gold.

Pretty good. I didn't watch all of it, but it wouldn't kill me if I did.

Those were really good and suprising..
The director of those vids, Mathieu Saura (aka Vincent Moon) has other pretty good videos in YouTub. Check out The National (curiously also Brooklyn based) playing About Today http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXmDtgopI-8 .

Something else YouTube was made for, amateur videos.. Check Ronald Jenkees ( http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=ronaldjenkees ), great musical talent ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRpLHVJsWu8 ) and devastatingly candid.

What exactly is an "Un Concert?"

Was it a concert that was somehow transformed into something that is not a concert? Is it something that makes concerts not happen?

I want to go to an UnConcert someday. I've only ever been to regular concerts.

Wow. they're quite fabulous. Little gems indeed.

Oh, I love La Blogotheque! They have many lovely songs pris à emporter. check out the Au Revoir Simone ones, and Herman Düne in the laundrette!

Posted by: Tom at March 19, 2007 9:26 AM

very cool. you might also enjoy this clip that's been floating around -- a very soulful beatbox performance of a Phil Collins tune on the Paris Metro. Maybe less spontaneous than meets the eye but it's super awesome none the less:
