Live Gig Video: Hatchie performs ‘Adored’ at Seattle’s Barbarosa

By on Thursday, 8th November 2018 at 4:00 pm

Australian dream pop singer/songwriter Hatchie, aka Harriette Pilbeam, has recently released a live video performance of her recent single ‘Adored’, from her show at Barbarosa in Seattle on the 19th of September. Filmed and edited by Trevor Crump, the video captures the essence of the song in live performance, including lighting, sound, and late night ambience. See it for yourself at the bottom of this page. Hatchie’s recently released EP ‘Sugar & Spice’ is available now via Double Double Whammy. Speaking of the song itself, Pilbeam says “‘Adored’ is a song that’s been floating around for a few years now, so I’m really excited it’s finally found its place with this release. I’ve been playing it live since my first show but didn’t feel it fit on either my [previous] EP or album. It’s about always wanting more than what you have, even if it’s perfect.”

Speaking of live performances, those of you on the UK side of the pond can catch Hatchie live at the beginning of next year, when she opens for The Vaccines in January and February 2019. You can find a full listing of Hatchie’s upcoming live dates on her official Facebook. TGTF’s previous coverage of Hatchie is right back here.


Live Gig Video: Field Music play four tracks in studio for Seattle radio station KEXP

By on Monday, 9th May 2016 at 4:00 pm

In the midst of their recent North American tour, Sunderland brother duo Field Music stopped in at Seattle radio station KEXP to play a live set of four tracks from their latest LP release ‘Commontime’. The KEXP studio session took place on the 28th of March, coincidentally the same day that editor Mary’s live review of Field Music’s Washington, DC performance from a few days earlier posted here on TGTF.

The Brewis brothers, along with Liz Corney on keyboards and backing vocals and Andrew Lowther on bass, joined KEXP radio host Stevie Zoom and photographer Hanna Stevens for the late afternoon studio session, where they played new album tracks ‘The Noisy Days Are Over’, ‘I’m Glad’, ‘Disappointed’ and ‘Don’t You Want to Know What’s Wrong?’. Just below, you can watch the full 24-minute live set, which includes a brief interview at the midway point, and you can sneak a peek at Stevens’ photos from the session on KEXP’s Flickr.

Live Gig Video: East India Youth performs four tracks live for Seattle radio station KEXP

By on Wednesday, 3rd June 2015 at 4:00 pm

In April and May of this year, London-based electronic musician / jack of all trades East India Youth, better known to his mum as Will Doyle, toured North America in support of his brand new second album ‘Culture of Volume’, the first on his new label, Beggars imprint XL Recordings. (Read my review of the brill LP here.) One of his stops was in Seattle, home to the storied and always supportive to indie artists radio station KEXP, who invited Doyle in for a live session and a brief interview with the ever present KEXP studio stars for a backdrop.

In this live video, ‘Culture of Volume’ tracks ‘Turn Away’, ‘Beaming White’ and ‘Hearts That Never’, along with tearjerker ‘Looking for Someone’ from the East India Youth 2014 Mercury Prize-nominated album ‘Total Strife Forever’ are offered up in stellar performances by Doyle. Tonight at Brighton Haunt is his third to last gig on his current UK tour; he plays London Village Underground in Shoreditch Thursday and Ramsgate Music Hall on Friday.

Live Gig Video: CYMBALS play five tracks live for Seattle radio station KEXP

By on Thursday, 9th October 2014 at 4:00 pm

Carrie and I were just talking last week about us catching CYMBALS perform live at SXSW 2014 at Cheer Up Charlie’s, where I almost missed them by accident. The English band were over here in the States over the summer for a short string of live dates. Naturally, when they were in Seattle, they recorded a live set for radio station KEXP, as you do. In the video below are ‘Erosion’ ‘You Are’, ‘Winter ’98’, ‘The Natural World’ and ‘Like an Animal’, now committed to film for posterity. Enjoy.



Live Gig Video: SOHN performs four tracks live for Seattle radio station KEXP

By on Wednesday, 18th June 2014 at 4:00 pm

I admit it. Ever since I heard ‘Artifice’ by SOHN, I’ve been addicted to the man’s music. Live, the Vienna-based English electronic musician is pretty much a one-man band, with synths, samplers and sequencers at the ready to pair beautifully with his soulful vocals. Unfortunately, I was in England when Christopher Taylor made his first visit to DC and I will just have to wait until winter before he returns. He’ll be playing a couple dates in the UK in September too.

In the meantime, we’ve got this amazing live performance of the always hooded Taylor, plus a bit of a chat with Cheryl Waters, all filmed at famed Seattle radio station KEXP. In it, he performs ‘Veto’, ‘Tempest’, ‘Artifice’ and ‘The Wheel’. The songs appear on his debut album ‘Tremors’, which came out in April on 4AD. Watch the magic unfold below.
