The key to finding great music is knowing where to look. This past weekend I have serendipitously discovered a few amazing resources for great music. The winner of the weekend however, is without a doubt, Shoot The Player.
It was started by two film makers, Amelia in New York, and Johnathan in Sydney, in an effort to "... encourage audiences to see and hear in a completely new way, by putting great musicians in iconic locations where you’d never expect them to be."
The music videos they make are all spontaneous, unplugged, one-take and in a public location. "Both the filmmakers and the performers interact with the space and people around them to create something genuinely original."
Not only is this a fantastic project and filled with many new voices, but there are some great old ones as well... here is Ben Lee with a cover of MGMT's "Kids" filmed by Shoot The Player.
