The Retread Sessions

KUT.org and Super!Alright! in Austin, Texas are proud to present Retread Sessions, an on-going series of videos capturing unique performances by some of our favorite artists. The first three sessions are viewable online now - and feature new versions and special, never before seen glimpses into the talents of artist like Shearwater, YACHT and Black before Red (recently featured on Pitchfork's Forkcast).

KUT's Retread Sessions are unique live performances in which musicians are given a chance to reexamine and reconstruct songs outside of the traditional performance locales. Stepping out of the studio, off the stage and into the world that influences their sound to give intimate performances, these artists showcase the beauty of great songwriting, the art of improvisation and a devotion to evolving that quickly becomes addictive to watch. Web Producer Paige Maguire curates, directs and produces the series for NPR affiliate KUT 90.5 FM in Austin, Texas. View all the content here.

also, check la blogotheque and their "Take Away Shows". Really beautiful cinematography for being mostly spontaneous constructions.
