La Blogotheque does a great series of live music videos of bands visiting Paris and they’re all superbly cinematic and spontaneous. I’ve been joyously watching a few and couldn’t help smile and crush on all of ’em. I love the spectators a bit confused, amused, and enchanted. They explore cafes, bars, beautiful buildings, and roam through the romantic streets of France. A few my favorites:
Bon Iver’s Flume
This song always gives me goosebumps and I’ve listened to it on repeat for a few weeks singing along, really loud, on my bike. Beautiful.
Grizzy Bear’s Knife
This is as silly as Grizzly Bear will get I think. I’m amazed in general by their collaborations with artists in making their videos with the likes of Tyler Coburn, Allison Schulnik, and Marcel Dzama. I’d love to meet them.
I totally have a crush on this genius of a musician.
Animal Collective’s Another White Singar
I love they’re using the cone, the street dividers, the shopping cart.
Vampire Weekend’s The Kids Don’t Stand a Chance
Noah and the Whale
On the train. Why are they all so cute? And those blue earmuffs.
