There’s a lot of great sites out there offering interesting, artistic and often unique videos of the artists you love talking, creating and playing music. Here are some you should definitely know about:

La Blogotheque: Take Away Shows

I’ll say this straight away: The Take Away Shows series produces some of the most consistently incredible videos of any of the sites I’ll post in this blog. Started in 2006 as an expansion of La Blogotheque, director Mathieu Saura (under the pseudonym Vincent Moon) began filming one-take videos of artists playing songs in completely regular settings (someone’s apartment, taking a walk down the road, on a park lawn) and often stripped down and/or acoustic. He has since gone on to film music documentaries for The National, R.E.M. and Beirut amongst others, but it’s his Take Away project that really shines, having now produced over 120 videos.

For No One

For No One is a relatively new site that I don’t know anything about but they’ve put out six sessions so far and they’ve all been brilliant.

Pitchfork.tv

Yeah, yeah, yeah, you guys can rip on the Fork all you want but the .tv side of the site compiles some of the best music videos out there. From the Daytripping sessions with artists like Bon Iver and The Black Keys, to the Tunnelvision live series, and not least of all, the Special Presentation videos featuring the likes of Women, The National and Menomena, this is stuff worth seeing.

Yours Truly

Another fantastic site bringing you up and close to artists doing their thing. Only second to the Take Away Shows in capturing some incredible music on video.

Daytrotter

Though their video section isn’t nearly as interesting as some of the others I’ve posted, Daytrotter is a great resource for intimate, acoustic or re-worked versions of songs played by your favourite artists. The lay-out, artwork and write-ups are interesting too, to say the least.

holy shit dude nice post. Bookmark'd for sure

The "Concerts a Emporter" (take away shows) are awesome, i've known about that site for a while. Anyone scrolling through should check out the video on that site of Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros. The take away show made me like that band when I had previously not. Seriously, it's one of the best videos I've ever seen.
