SONG: Lianne La Havas

“Forget” [LIVE]

Tonight my friend, P showed me the music of Lianne La Havas, and specifically this song. Upon further YouTube searching, I found this stripped down solo rendition, which I find captivating. **If you haven’t checked out these “Take Away Shows” from the French site La Blogotheque, you should do some exploring HERE.

Anyways, Lianne La Havas has a really diverse sound. It somehow seems to teeter along the edges of R&B, soul, and pop all at once. She may be difficult to categorize but it’s easy to hear the exquisite quality of her voice. Especially when you take most everything else away:

Tunng – “Bodies” [LIVE]

Just discovered this great live version of “Bodies” from the experimental folk band Tunng… here they are crammed on a little boat on the water. I never tire of seeing all the places La Blogotheque takes musicians to for their Take Away Shows. If you haven’t explored the site definitely check it out.

La Blogotheque: Mumford & Sons

I’m in awe of the sound that is produced in this Take Away Show with Mumford & Sons. These segments never cease to amaze me… in this one, Johnny Flynn joins the band on violin and they even translate one of their tunes into French on the spot.

La Blogotheque: Local Natives

I was so thrilled to see one of my new favorite bands, Local Natives did a “Takeaway Show” with La Blogotheque recently. They seem to be walking through some mall-like place with sweet acoustics while they do seriously impressive harmonizing on the tune, “Who Knows, Who Cares”. I like how they worked the tune a little differently to accommodate their acoustic set up… and how they begin with just one of them playing and others join in as they walk through. Right around the 3 minute mark, I start to get some serious goosebumps. Check it out:
