Love the arrangement of this Noisey acoustic performance of “Hey Mami” by Sylvan Esso.
This weekend I went to see Frightened Rabbit in concert at Webster Hall. Great live performance for the most part. The lead singer and songwriter, Scott Hutchison, isn’t much of a talker (or maybe he used up his banter in the show the night before), but he really proved his stage presence when he ventured up to the balcony among some of the audience to perform an acoustic song with no mic. The only interruptions were an offered, and taken, shot of patron from a nearby fan and one “WOOOOO” from the crowd as he started his somber song. He captured the attention of the whole venue, and managed to keep it, for a great moment that really connected with the crowd.
Spellbinding, mesmerizing: these are the words that come to mind when watching this beautiful performance by Sarah Jarosz recorded by Mason Jar Music. The simple stirring of dust, catching the light that’s cascading through the windows, creates a dreamy suspended atmosphere, pulling the physical performance into the realm of the song.
Penny and Sparrow give a soulful performance in this acoustic, intimate recording of their song Brothers. It’s the kind of song that can get you through anything if you listen to it enough times. This is for a dear friend who needs it right now.
