The site Blogotheque is an interesting 'virtual concert' site - performers film sessions for the site, and they put them up for viewing, or download (so, free iPod videos, if you're so inclined). Takeaway shows...

Here is the Beirut session, with two new songs.

You probably should download this new session at KEXP too...

Blitzen Trapper

I am a huge fan of the acoustic Rolling Stones bootleg featuring an amazing take of Honky Tonk Women (Unplugged 1968-1973). I am also a big fan of the new group Blitzen Trapper. Well, they've just produced a fantastic session for the music blog site Daytrotter, with four acoustic tracks for free download. Go here for the session.

These songs from the new album (out in the next couple of months) are fantastic. Certainly fresher than the 'new' New Pornographers...
