from the basement.

The site from the basement is worth checking out. It offers a collection or rare performances from a variety of artists such as the raconteurs, gnarls barkley, the sparks and new artists. The intimate setting of 'the basement' in combination with the beautiful HD shooting creates an amazing capture of time.
Creator, Nigel Godrich explains "All in all I think it all adds up to something unique and special which I don't feel happening anywhere else in either the music side of mainstream TV or online. My own personal goal is that in the future some of these performances might be seen as the truest representation of the state of their artists work, captured in a way that lets their talents speak without the interference of presenters, or audiences. That is what I feel when I watch Talking Heads or Bill Withers on the Old Grey Whistle Test, that they are most definitely playing for me, not someone else in the room. If we can even touch on that kind of directness and quality then I think the whole project will have been a success."
