Sam: The Black Cab Sessions

How did I not know about this until today!?  I feel so ashamed.  The Black Cab Sessions is an internet series featuring musicians performing in the back of a cab on the streets of England.  From what I understand it is primarily filmed in London and captures the performance in one take.  There are great clips of, Martha Wainwright, Beach House, Sunset Rubdown, Daniel Johnston and my two favorites…

The Raveonettes

and

The National

“One Song.  One take.  One cab.”  Brilliant!
