    Fire was the first song I'd heard from The Olympics new record. Our version sounds a little different from the studio track, but not in a bad way. Expect more claps and some slightly improvised…

          We were deep in our cups at one of Iowa City's finest bars, Gabe's Oasis, when we came upon Jordan Herrera of Young Readers. He wasn't performing, simply passing through town. We became…

            Safe With Me was the only track from Trouble Lights we had heard before our session. The song started, and we were floored--it sounded as good live as it did on the record. Except Adrien didn't…

                Henrietta was the hidden gem of Seldom Seen. What they lacked in online presence (good luck finding them on google) they made up for with a stellar live performance. My Valhalla is an infectiously…

                  We found some nice high-ground to shoot this track, Kingfisher. We had to squint into the sun throughout filming, which proved a minor inconvenience, but the dreamy lens flare made it worth it.
