Watch as Austin, Texas-based roots-rock band Sons of Fathers steam up the Guild Lounge with this rocking performance of “Sons of Fathers.”
When Colorado folk act Elephant Revival stopped by the Guild Lounge, they gave us a beautiful performance of “Birds and Stars,” the opening track to 2013′s These Changing Skies.
The season finale of Saturday Night Live brought back several former cast favorites including host Andy Samberg, Fred Armisen, Maya Rudolph, Seth Meyers and Kristin Wiig.
The nostalgic episode included spoofs on the Met Gala elevator fight between Jay Z and Solange, a digital short starring DJ Davvincii and a new Lonely Island track featuring Pharrell Williams.
But the best musical spots of the night came from the stunning St. Vincent, a.k.a. Annie Clark, who performed “Digital Witness” and “Birth in Reverse” off her 2014 eponymous effort.
Watch the wonderfully strange clip of “Birth in Reverse” below.
With a new album called Are We There coming out in the United States on May 27, Sharon Van Etten offered a stripped-down sneak peek at the song “Every Time the Sun Comes Up” for NME.
Van Etten teamed with Heather Woods Broderick at the Emmanuel Church in Islington, London, for the performance. Watch the heart-wrenching clip below.
During a spring jaunt through the Netherlands, L.A.-based singer/songwriter Shane Alexander gave an unplugged performance for Mokum Sessions in Amsterdam, playing his haunting new song, “I Will Die Alone.”
Watch Alexander in the clip below.
While touring in support of January 2014′s Wig Out at Jagbags, Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks dropped by the studios of 89.3 The Current in Minnesota, where they performed the new track “Chartjunk.”
Malkmus is seen below rocking his “beat-to-hell” 1970 Guild S-100. His tech recently told Premier Guitar that the instrument has “been through the ringer, but it’s mostly intact.”
One of those new songs, “Make It Easy,” is a slow burner with a sunny melody when plugged in, but the group puts a great twist on it with this acoustic version. In addition, the guys pulled out the bass-heavy “Dumb Luck.”
