BAMM.tv exclusive: ‘Requiem Waltz’, Emily Jane White

Posted on: No Comments

It’s been a summer of unique performances here at BAMM.tv. Having collaborated with our friends over at Audyssey and Noise Pop on a journey to bring you one-of-a-kind songwriters in one-of-a-kind settings, we were privileged to see some great artists in action.

Emily Jane White was no exception. Joined by the fantastic Shawn Aplay (cello) and Carey Lamprecht (violin), she treated us to a remarkable rendition of ‘Requiem Waltz’. Placed firmly in the hauntingly powerful lineage of Bat For Lashes and Joanna Newsom, this is a performance you’ll want to immerse yourself in time and time again.

BAMM.tv exclusve: ‘Little Hell Part 1 and 2′, Sioux City Kid And The Revolutionary Ramblers

Posted on: No Comments

Here’s something special to usher in the weekend - a two-part blast of modern-day classic Americana, accompanied by some fascinating archive footage from San Francisco. Sioux City Kid treated us to an exclusive performance of ‘Little Hell Part 1 and 2′ – and within a few minutes we were all transformed into growling, whiskey-swilling good-timers looking for a party. Not that anyone could tell the difference between that and our normal selves, of course …

BAMM.tv exclusive: ‘Mickey Mantle’, Waters

Posted on: No Comments

You know what? We could make a gag about this video from Waters being ‘streaming music’, but frankly we’re above that. Well, most of the time. Catch us on an off-day and we’ll reel out the puns like an amateur stand-up night. But not today. Okay?

Today we’re just gonna urge you to check out this amazing performance of ‘Mickey Mantle’ by Waters, brought to you in association with the folks at Audyssey and Noise Pop. We’re also going to suggest that those of you lucky enough to live in San Francisco head down to The Independent tomorrow night (Friday 14th) to catch Waters live in action …

BAMM.tv exclusive: Vandella, ‘Leaves’

Posted on: 1 Comment

Up for a little bit of genre-mashing this fine Tuesday? Well, we hope some folk-rock alt-country indie-pop motown-tinged bluesy classic rock floats your boat, because that’s the remarkable concoction we have on offer from San Francisco’s very own Vandella, a supremely talented four-piece who stopped by BAMM HQ a while back to treat us to an exclusive rendition of ‘Leaves.’

Like what you hear above? (Helpful hint: if you don’t, you should probably get your ears checked – waxy build-up can really hamper your musical appreciation). Well, if you happen to be in SF tomorrow (the 29th August) you can catch these guys live in Union Square. Perfect summer evening entertainment.

BAMM.tv exclusive: ‘Thank Ya’, Con Brio

Posted on: No Comments

How do Con Brio manage to combine their expert grasp of funk, soul, jazz and blues into a simmering whole and make it all seem so effortless? We’re stumped. Hopefully you’ll be similarly amazed when you check out this killer impromptu performance of ‘Thank Ya’, shot while on the road to SXSW 2011 and dragged out of the BAMM archives ‘classic’ folder for your enjoyment.

Aaaaand if you’re a San Francisco local, you can catch these fellow San Francisco locals at The Mezzanine this Friday. Details can be found here.
