The Black Cab Sessions

It's a nice idea really. An artist or a limited part of a group jump in the back of a cab in the UK and one song is performed as the taxi drives around.

A little quote from the site explains it further:

"WE LIKE THE IDEA OF TAKING A MUSICIAN/ARTIST OUT OF THEIR HABITUAL CONTEXT AND PUTTING THEM IN A FOREIGN ONE - WE RECKON IT GIVES NEW LIFE TO THE PERFORMANCE AND MAKES IT MORE INTERESTING TO WATCH"

You can check out videos on youtube or the official site and some of the groups to be found are The Raveonettes, The New Pornographers, and Bill Callahan.



Below is a really charming and intimate version of "Grievances" Daniel Johnston.
