Daytrotter and Twin Sister
Twin Sister - "Something About Us (Daft Punk)" from Ian Perlman on Vimeo.
Last for the day but certainly not least we have a new Daytrotter session with Twin Sister. They won me over with their rooftop rendition of Daft Punk "Something About Us" in the clip above and these recordings don't do anything to dissuade me. If you are unfamiliar with Daytrotter, its an outfit out of Illinois that has bands come to their unique recording studio in between concerts to make some music magic. As they put it, and I agree, there are a million blogs that act like they'll point you to something first, but the real trick is ACTUALLY bringing you something new and different, not just acting like you were there from the beginning. They've had acts from Neon Indian, Dr. Dog, The National, Dinosaur Jr, The Hold Steady, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Vampire Weekend among others. All their sessions are downloadable and they also have a uber sweet iphone app that does everything that the site does. Links are below:
