Jack White’s Take Away Show Is Incredible

Really, there was no way this performance video wasn’t going to be incredible.  Let’s look at the ingredients of this magical and wonderful musical layer cake:

1) The Blogoteque – One of the OGs when it comes to cool and unique performance session videos, no one really does it better

2) Paris – The acoustics in this old chapel (Saint-Saturnin Chapel, Fontainebleau Castle) are incredible, and the setting is absolutely stunning (especially when they move up to the roof)

3) That Badass Silver Upright Bass – No need for elaboration on this one.

4) Jack White – Let’s be honest, the man is in his prime right now.  From demolishing vinyl sales, to being totally unimpressed by sports, to his fantastic arrangements, it seems that there is nothing Jack white can’t do.

So – take it all in, friends, and enjoy.

Kick-Ass Cover: Hanson Takes on Taylor Swift

Wake up everyone – Hanson, the mighty trio, has taken on the one and only T. Swift.

If you know me at all you probably know that I have a completely mature, not at all ironic, deeply passionate love for Hanson.  I think they are a wonderful group of musicians with pretty faces and hair and everything they do makes me smile (especially this).

I also have slightly less mature, occasionally ironic, girl-crush level feelings for Taylor Swift.  I have very certainly been guilty of rocking out hard to some good TS jams, but I’ll admit, this latest song We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together is not exactly my favorite (plus, come on with that title).

That all changed this morning, when my boys decided to cover it.  Acoustic, harmonized, and wonderful – they brought the Hanson, and it makes me a very happy girl.  So let this fine poppy jam brighten up your Wednesday the way it did mine.

And to add a cherry on top of this sundae, here’s them doing a grown-up MMMBop.  **Sigh**
