Get 2 Know: Black Cab Sessions!

“One Song, One Take, One Cab.”

The motto of the Black Cab Sessions reflects the simplicity of its concept.  Popular musicians playing intimate songs for a camera man and a cab driver, delivered to our computer screens.  In a world of complex, digitally auto-tuned “music,” the BCS’s creators, creator Jono Stevens and producers Gen Stevens, Chris Pattinson, Jonny Madderson, and Will Evans, are the ultimate purists.  No alterations, no second takes, just beautiful acoustic performances.  If you’ve ever wanted to feel like a band was playing a performance just for you as you chill on your sofa…now’s your chance.  Enjoy some of my favorites (Minus the King Charles clip posted a few days earlier):

Band of Horses:

Noah and the Whale:

Calexico:

And some others: Lykke Li, Spoon, Mumford and Sons, and The National
