As previously mentioned, we’re overly excited about getting our Lost in Austin takeaway videos back off the ground and running. Our first subject in the relaunch featured Cave Singers and we shared the first part of that video series last week. Today we’ve got part 2 and we couldn’t be happier with the way things turned out. Follow the jump for video.
It’s been a minute or two since we ran a Lost in Austin Take Away feature, but we’re back today with one of our favorite local acts, Literature. Again, we’ve teamed up with the good folks over at GuerillaWaltz to coordinate the best in video and music, so we hope you like the coverage.
If you haven’t seen the video yet of Bloc Party performing an acoustic version of “This Modern Love” behind a bar in Paris, I suggest you watch it now. The video was shot and produced by the La Blogotheque website as part of their excellent Take Away Shows series. The older tune is a reminder that Bloc party wrote some outstanding songs for Silent Alarm and their new album pales in comparison. Maybe they should’ve just made an acoustic album and not the techno/dance rubbish that is Intimacy?
