for 12 years, the longstanding A TAKE AWAY SHOW is one of the more COMPELLING LIVE PERFORMANCE series i've come across in recent memory as it is WELL-PRODUCED with exceptionally engineered mixes in SUBOPTIMAL, often OPEN-AIR recording situations. the series is the brainchild of BLOGOTHEQUE, a FRENCH YOUTUBE CHANNEL that has now expanded out to various other longer form ventures.
it is just such a gift to have these STELLAR PERFORMANCES out there in the ether for everyone to access and enjoy. past NOTABLE participating artists in A TAKE AWAY SHOW include MAC DEMARCO, VAMPIRE WEEKEND, LEE RANALDO (SONIC YOUTH), MURA MASA, TONY ALLEN (FELA AND AFRIKA 70, GORILLAZ, THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE QUEEN), COURTNEY BARNETT, FONTAINES D.C., STELLA DONNELLY, BLOC PARTY, JACK WHITE (THE WHITE STRIPES, DEAD WEATHER), LIANNE LA HAVAS, YOUTH LAGOON, STEPHEN MALKMUS (PAVEMENT), SUDAN ARCHIVES and DAMON ALBARN (BLUR, GORILLAZ).
most definitely worth checking out.
