NPR Field Recordings FTW

I just discovered NPR’s Field Recordings today and I LOVE the videos they’ve posted so far! Thought I should share.

Metric
“Stripped of an electric guitar and moody reverb, Metric singer Emily Haines and guitarist James Shaw perform a version of ‘Synthetica’ pretty enough to challenge the sweeping sunset behind them.”

Of Monsters And Men
“No strangers to natural beauty, the Icelanders were nevertheless stunned by the picturesque backdrop of the Gorge Amphitheater in Washington as they performed ‘Mountain Sound.’”

Lee Fields
“With his voice still raw from a show the night before, rough-and-tumble soul singer Lee Fields reached deep, fought off the morning fog and gave a passionate, stripped-down performance of ‘Still Hanging On.’”
