This one’s for you New York

So at the end of this week, i’ll pack up my records, take the pictures off the wall and move myself to Philadelphia. It’s been a good run in New York and I’m gonna miss it. But don’t fret, I’ll be back.  But I wanted to put up a little mix that reminds me of my time here before the rest of the week consumes me.

There were the ups and downs, epic nights and defeated ones. But I loved every minute of it.

More adventures on the way.

Take Away Shows

The Take Away Shows have been around for a while thanks to the French music blog La Blagotheque, but every time I see a new one I fall in love with them again. Stylistically, they’re exactly what I want. That’s all thanks to the mastermind and primary filmer Vincent Moon. I thought I’d share some of my favorites… but there are so many more with artists like Grizzly Bear, Animal Collective, Jens Lekman, Sufjan Stevens, and there’s even one with Jason Mraz!!!
