    LaundroMatinee
    LaundroMatinee's Video Sessions is a online video series featuring live performances by independent bands and solo artists. Craig "Dodge" Lile and Jeff DuPont lit the fire for the peculiar music site LaundroMatinee.com back in 2006, with audio recordings of various independent bands, starting with their initial capture of a performance from Catfish Haven. Somewhere along the line they enlisted videographer Tim Wilsbach to film the sessions, and from there the project began to take serious shape. The first band to be featured in LaundroMatinee's Video Sessions was Bon Iver, and since putting the show online in 2008, word has spread that Lile and DuPont have a pretty cool little show on their hands. Seeking out original and unique musicians, the sessions showcase talent, and while being mainstream is certainly not at all a requirement, bands like The Dandy Warhols have joined emerging groups like The Young Republic and Ben Sollee to fill out an enigmatic lineup. The site has interviews and blogs that keep users in touch and informed, but the real draw here is the performances. Very special, and very good, LaundroMatinee's Video Sessions are a must see for fans of independent music.moreless

    Sparhusen is an amusing faux-documentary created by Illeana Douglas about the Swedish experimental pop group Sparhusen: Beirget Kattson, Olf Nystrom, and Gert Forseberg. Shot through the granulated lens and aged film of Mangus Svenka's epic, if unfinished, 'Triumph of Sparhusen” the mockumentary details the band's relationships, both with former Manager, Bjorn Epstein (one of only 3 Swedish Jews), and with famed Swedish record producer Wurst Fierren, (Keanu Reeves). Footage includes the original recording sessions of Sparhusen's landmark album, 'Apples & Fish,' and its equally influential and undeniably catchy single, 'Apples & Fish.' The process is creatively draining for all, especially working with Fierren, who influences the album with extensive use of whale sounds, and the famous 'I give you the fish' role-playing exercises. The documentary concluded just three weeks before the fateful plane crash that stole 'Sweden's almost great bandâ' from us all. As Wurst says so perfectly, 'I think we are done, ya?'moreless
