Radiohead : Weird Fishes/Arpeggi : Live at Hospital Studio, London, England, April, 2008

“In the deepest ocean. The bottom of the sea. Your eyes, they turn me…”

This song is just gorgeous, and this performance captures the precision and beauty of Radiohead’s music.  The harmonic complexity and texture.  The weight.

This footage is from the band’s recording sessions for the live disc included in the deluxe edition of In Rainbows.  Shot at Hospital Studio, Covent Garden, London, in April, 2008, the footage aired originally on the British television program From the Basement and was produced by Radiohead’s longtime producer and collaborator, Nigel Godrich.

Grace Potter & the Nocturnals : Apologies : Live on Beautiful Noise (TV), Berkeley Church, Toronto, Canada, 2008

“Apologies”, a single from Potter & the Nocturnals’ third studio album, This Is Somewhere, haunts us.  Potter is Joplin-esque in her ability to emote.  Any girl that can stroke a Rhodes keyboard like Potter is aces in our book.  This is actually a relatively tame performance from Potter & the Nocturnals.  More recent live video reveals a more liberated Potter (and the remarkably hirsute Nocturnals, save Catherine Popper (who haunts our dreams)).  We intend to cull from the archives footage of Potter playing keyboard with high heels–not “in” high heels, mind you, but actually standing on the damn keyboard playing the song with the heels strapped to her feet.
