I like intimate performance videos, like these two - Tower of Power & Radiohead covers

Hi.

Searching around the internet, I stumbled across this.

A trio covering Radiohead’s 15 Step and Tower of Power’s What is Hip.

I like these kinds off intimate performance videos, that are well made. Seems like with modern tools available and a little care, and the will to do it, we’re able to get these often now. Probably why I enjoy KEXP vids so much.

Tele content too.

Oh, and the drummer is very cool.

By gawd that drummer is something else. Those snare triplets are perfection

Hi.

I know. I immediately thought of some recent comments here about how the drummer and bass player can carry the others in a band, but never the other way around. She'd make anyone sound great.*

Hi again.

This just 'auto' came up on Youtube, after I watched that Tower of Power cover again. I think I've seen this before, maybe on here.*

It's interesting, esp. for the shamisen, but I way prefer the video above. The one in my first post is more subtle, dynamic and generally more interesting I feel.
