MELISSA LATELY

Lately, I've been thinking.

Spontaneity is the keyword.

I have no words for what I’ve just found online. Maybe this is old news.
Oh well.
I’m in love.
Please enjoy…

About the Take Away Shows

The Take away shows are la Blogotheque’s first video podcasts.

Every week, we invite an artist or a band to play in the streets, in a bar, a park, or even in a flat or in an elevator, and we film the whole session. Of course, what makes the beauty of it is all the little incidents, hesitations, and crazy stuff happening unexpectingly. Besides, we do not edit the videos so they look perfectly flawless, instead we keep the raw sound of the surroundings. Our goal is to try and capture instants, film the music just like it happens, without preparation, without tricks. Spontaneity is the keyword.

The Take away shows exist since April 2006. There was Chryde, who wanted to shake things up and find another way to share music, and there was Vincent Moon, who wanted to film music differently. Chryde offered Moon to go and film musicians in the city, Moon seized the idea and glorified it. Since then, other directors across the world joined this project, and we plan to extend it worldwide.


Go HERE to read explanations on what you’ve just seen in the videos!!

Phoenix is not the only band to participate in a Take Away Show. Go to LA BLOGOTHEQUE to see the vast multitude of artists who have done these shows all over the world!! It’s amazing.

I also really like this one by Bon Iver…beautiful!!
