Moving Pictures Tuesday with Ólafur Arnalds, Will Johnson, Phosphorescent and Leif Vollebekk

Film Screening

So I have been remiss in the “Moving Pictures Monday” series due to many issues and excuses and negligence and various things so here we are on a Tuesday. Let’s just not focus on that too closely.

I have 4 videos from some people that I tend to like around here at Slowcoustic. I am starting it off with the Icelandic beauty of Old Skin from Ólafur Arnalds – great video to compliment the stunning song.

Next I saw a recent video of Will Johnson performing at the American Songwriter offices. He was interviewing and playing and this is a lovely track from his most recent album Scorpion. Watch You Will Be Here, Mine below (if you are in a hurry you can zip up to around the 1:10 mark).

The recent release from Phosphorescent had it’s lead off track, Song for Zula, premiere in video form at NPR (read more) and I thought I needed to post it. It is great single shot video, filmed at a high frame rate then slowed down to give the slo-mo vibe. Mixed with the song, these visuals give it a very nice touch, imho.

Lastly we have Montreal folky Leif Vollebekk performing on the Q radio show. Leif performs a nice rendition of When The Subway Comes Above The Ground from his excellent album North Americana.

There you have it, Moving Pictures Tuesday! Hopefully we will see you once again on next Monday.
