    From the Basement
    Welcome friends and music lovers. Here lies the website of From the Basement - A sort of music show / labour of love produced by a small group of dedicated individuals. We shoot it all on HD video and the sound is produced by me. The whole emphasis of the show is about being artist friendly and making our bands as comfortable as possible so that they can give great performances without the usual agony of TV promo which everyone has to do but no one seems to enjoy. TV world is a pretty hostile environment for your average musician to have to walk into and bare his soul on cue.. It also doesn't hurt that a lot of the people we've filmed are friends or people we've worked with before so they trust us and know that we understand what recording music is about as well as making good TV. All in all I think it all adds up to something unique and special which I don't feel happening anywhere else in either the music side of mainstream TV or online.moreless

Episodes include The Walkmen, from New York, covering R.E.M's "Driver 8" from 1985, Tokyo Police Club singing Billy Squier's "Everybody Wants You," Cymbals Eat Guitars taking on "Detroit Has A Skyline" by Superchunk and Ben Folds covering Elliott Smith's "Say Yes."

    NPR - National Public Radio
    Tiny Desk Concerts is a feature of the NPR (National Public Radio) show called "All Songs Considered," a spinoff of the popular show "All Things Considered." The musical spinoff is the creation of the host and director of the original NPR show, Bob Boilen, who has shared his love of music with listeners of "All Things Considered" for decades. Over time, Boilen, who often conducted and recorded casual and friendly interviews with musicians while sitting at his small desk in the cramped NPR Music room, organically came to the practice of asking them to give a little performance live while standing there. Inspired, surely, by Bob's honest and open love of their music, artists commonly agree to take out their instruments, and with knees bumping Bob's desk and their back brushing the bookshelves behind them, they perform the most incredible impromptu and magically intimate mini-concerts, weaving their spirits into music for a singular, solitary audience of Bob alone, and through his recordings the entranced audience of his NPR show. Now the recordings are collected and arranged together in the NPR site pages devoted to them, listed as Bob's famous Tiny Desk concerts.moreless

    My Damn Channel
    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

    Bully is a web series of live concerts by bands. Broadcast on openfilm, Bully is an interactive process where the bands play in a studio in front of television monitors that display live messages from viewers. The bands are smaller, lesser known acts. The messages appearing on the monitors are, at times, broadcast over footage of the band, so viewers can see the live reactions of the rest of the audience, creating a virtual concert that simulates the unified feeling of a live concert. The band often reacts to the messages, laughing at the funnier ones. Some of the bands that play longer sets include: House of Fools, Kingspade, The Maine, Panima and Steel Train. By allowing the audience to speak to the band without being drowned out by the music and roar of the crowd, the concerts create a high level of interaction between the audience and band that a live concert normally cannot attain.moreless
