Forest Gospel has been obsessing over a few film clips lately. You may have noticed that we posted a few along with the new Dirty Projectors review. La Blogoteque is a music blog from somewhere that speaks in French (I can't read French so I'm not sure where), who makes short films of bands playing live in different quaint European cities, Brooklyn and elsewhere, sometimes walking through the streets, sometimes indoors. All the clips have amazing sound quality and beautiful colors. Some great ones are these two of Sufjan playing on a dilapidated rooftop and Arcade Fire playing in an elevator. GO HERE for the rest of the films. You could probably find them on Youtube, but I have noticed that the quality seems a bit better on their site. They really are beautiful and I definitely suggest that you waste the rest of your day watching them. They have clips from Beirut, The National, Grizzly Bear, The Islands, Liars, Of Montreal, Andrew Bird, The Shins, Voxtrot, Tapes & Tapes, Architecture In Helsinki, Menomena, Kria Brekken, Xiu Xiu, Okkervil River, Au Rivoir Simone, Jens Lekman and a TON more. Go there already!

In other Internet news: The Great Lake Swimmers just released a free Internet only EP recorded from their live show at Toronto's Church of the Redeemer. It's five songs zipped into a quick little push of a button. You can download the whole thing HERE.
