LaBlogotheque is easily one of my favorite music channels on Youtube. It has a rather simple concept. Get a indie artist that most people have never heard of, put them in an intimate setting, and record them doing a mostly acoustic set. The videos are usually beautifully shot at great locations all across the globe. I definitely recommend anyone who likes to hear a good acoustic set to check LaBlogotheque out.
I had never heard of the Tenniscoats until I saw this video a couple of years ago. I don’t speak Japanese, so I have no idea what she is saying. But sometimes music isn’t about literal meaning. In this particular case the sound of the gentle strings and her tender melody tells me everything I need to know. That’s the beauty of music. You are the one that gives a song meaning.
