Need a fix of some world exclusive live videos?  I’m here to help!  This post has SIX world exclusive videos just for you and the post below has an additional six.  Who loves ya baby?  G does!

Let’s kick things off with UK dance duo Disclosure performing “Jaded” at Madison Square Garden on October 25, 2015.

While we are in the dancing mood, check out Canada’s Haute Rock band Young Empires, performing “Sunshine” at Mercury Lounge on October 17, 2015.

Next up, is the newcomer Borns, who has a T. Rex meets MGMT vibe. He covered two classic songs recently, and I present them both to you: Here’s Borns taking on “Bennie and the Jets” by Elton John!

Borns, also covered “Moonage Daydream” by David Bowie!

Finally, a pair of tracks from Blur’s first Madison Square Garden headlining show. Damon Albarn commented that it only took them 25 years to get there, but as you will see, it was worth the wait.

The first track is a Blur rarity, “Country Sad Ballad Man,” which has not been performed live in 20 years!

Last but not least is a song you all know and love – “Song 2!” WHOO HOO!!!!

Please support these bands (and all others on the site) by seeing them in concert and spreading the word!

Hot band alert!  Please put the 4 piece Icelandic band Kaleo on your radar if they are not already.  Fusing the worlds of rock, pop and folk seamlessly, Kaleo are poised to become huge.  They played their first ever show in New York on July 15, 2015 and both the audience and myself loved what we heard.  Even if you didn’t like their music, there is visual eye candy for days.  Lead singer Jökull Júlíusson has that perfect strand of hair that falls in his face, amazing biceps and a voice that makes him sound like he’s been performing for decades.  Just check out the video below if you don’t believe me.  He also is an expert whistler, though you won’t hear it in the video below.

The video you are about to see is Kaleo’s soon to be hit, “I Walk On Water.”  The song starts off really slow and mellow, but don’t get discouraged if you don’t get instant gratification.  After a minute or two, the song picks up steam and you will see exactly why you need this band in your life.

Enjoy!

I spoke with the band after the show (see below) and I told them about my trip to Iceland from a few years ago, and we discussed how beautiful their country is.  If you have not been, I highly recommend it.  They told me that they recently filmed a video inside a volcano (which will be out in the coming months) in Iceland, but for the time being, they have relocated to Austin, Texas.  Look for their debut album to come out in late 2015 or early 2016.  Thanks again for a great show Kaleo!  Looking forward to hearing and seeing more great things to come!

On March 3, 2014 at New York’s Mercury Lounge, New Zealand’s electronic brother/sister duo Broods packed the house for one of their first US live appearances.  Based on the crowd reaction, Broods are poised to have a successful career ahead of them and they got instant gratification as they announced their next show which will be at the much larger venue Music Hall of Williamsburg.  Not bad considering their debut album is not out yet!  Love it!  Check out a video of their track “Bridges.”

Just press play.

Best of luck to you Broods!

On March 3, 2014, English band Arthur Beatrice made their live debut in the United States at New York’s Mercury Lounge.  The group has a mellow vibe to their sound and if you like The XX or London Grammar, you will like Arthur Beatrice.  One of the highlights of the evening (aside from talking to The Vaccines lead singer Justin Young, who was in the audience) was their song “Late,” of which a video is posted below.  Just press play!

Video: “Caught Inside” live by Bad Things

On March 2, 2014, New Yorkers braved the threat of a massive snowstorm and skipped watching the Oscars to attend a sold out show from Bad Things at Mercury Lounge.  The California based synth-rock band performed songs from their self titled debut which came out in January of 2014.  Typically when you go to a show, the lead singer gets all the love and attention, but Bad Things has a quite famous bass player and all eyes were on him.  Once the show got going, the crowd rocked out and one of the show highlights was the song “Caught Inside.”  Find out who the famous bass player is after the jump (or just click “play”).  Also, if you missed this show, Bad Things will be on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon later on in the week, so check your local listings!
