They have some of the most stunning acoustic videos I've ever seen. I think the filter on the camera makes a big difference to the actual video, and gives it a kinda cold, 'vintagey' feel. My favourite has to be 'Yes, Yes, We're Magicians' by the Crookes, but as I talked about it in a post recently, I decided to show some different songs instead.
Watch, Listen, Tell
I always seem to prefer acoustic versions of quite 'rockish' songs. I first heard about 'Watch, Listen, Tell' when Stornoway did an acoustic version of 'I Saw You Blink' (see below), and since then I've been hooked on all their videos. They release a new one each Monday, so keep checking back each week! And follow them on twitter to find out more.
Ok, so I know this isn't actually an acoustic channel on youtube, but I found some really really good acoustic versions of Villagers. I'm not sure if they do home sessions with any other artists though, as I haven't been able to find any. Please let me know if you find any though!
Love love love this song so much! I was in love with the original at first, but on hearing this version I immediately prefered it. There's just something about the piano chords that seem so 'jazzy' and happy.
Possibly the coolest thing I've seen in a long long time.Kaiser Chief fans, watch the video below.
Instead of the conventional album, the idea behind 'The Future is Medieval' is that for £7.50 you're able to create your own 10 track album from a choice of 20 songs, with your own artwork. And whenever someone buys your album, you receive a pound. So after 7 and a half people buy your album, it's been paid for itself! How wicked is that?! I'm off to create my album now. Have a go yourself here.
