Last month, you might have caught a live stream of experimental laptop-popster Baths performing a particularly great set at the Boiler Room in Los Angeles, but, if you didn’t, the full video is now online via the Boiler Room’s youtube account. Baths performed a variety of cuts from both Cerulean and last year’s Pop Music / False B-Sides comp along with a couple of new cuts presumably from his forthcoming sophomore album. Our personal favorite is the “1997 emo rock” closer: “it is not a matter of if you mean it / it’s only a matter of come and fuck me” – awesome. Check the full set out via the video below, along with some gloriously awkward dancing from the visible attendees.
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
