Cee Lo Green | A Take Away Show
"On ne peut plus parler de placard. On ne peut plus dire qu’on a balayé de la manche la poussière qui s’était déposée sur la cassette. Mais c’était tout comme. Ouvrir, plus d’un an après, les rushes de cette après-midi surréaliste passée avec Cee-Lo Green dans les studios de la plaine St-Denis."
Yes, we took Sam Beam, aka Iron & Wine, to taste some... wine, and then asked him to play in the cave, amongst the best bottles.
He's playing 'Tree by the River', from his latest album, 'Kiss each other clean'.

Set for a June 29th release on the band's recently created label, Terrible Thrills, STEEL TRAIN is an infectious album, produced by Steven McDonald (Be Your Own Pet, Imperial Teen,) that brilliantly showcases a new level of songwriting and musicianship only hinted at in the band's earlier work. Lead singer and songwriter Jack Antonoff says the album "is a return to where we come from. We grew up playing legion halls and firehouses and the sound systems were always so bad we had to go ape shit to put on a real show, and somehow that inspired the music and lyrics to reflect all that madness."
Steel Train's blend of rock n roll, delivered with boundless energy, appeals to fans from all over the musical spectrum. The band's collection of songs has been praised by Rolling Stone, Spin, Entertainment Weekly, Relix, Esquire, Alternative Press and USA Today, among others, for its huge, exuberant hooks and galloping rhythms set off by a steady attack of guitars and yearning vocals.
STEEL TRAIN is the follow up to the band's album TRAMPOLINE, which saw the New Jersey natives perform on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and share the stage with The Silversun Pickups, Ben Folds, Gomez and Say Anything, and appear at Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, to name a few.
Known for their unhinged live shows, Steel Train is already premiering these new songs to fans on the road; they've spent most of 2010 touring with Tegan and Sara. The band is looking forward to their Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival debut and a headlining tour this June.
From the epic opening track BULLET to the edgy TURNPIKE GHOST, from the passionate album rock of BEHAVIOR to the rebellious YOU ARE DANGEROUS, this versatile new album brilliantly shows the strength of a band with a mission and as Antonoff adds "This new record is about getting the fuck out of bed with your mind open to the world - no bitterness. Nothing inspires me more than when I see that in people."
