Artists Perform And Discuss Their Music.
About This Video
|Big Jet Plane||For You||Santa Monica Dream|
The allure of the road: it's what drives most professional musicians to do what they do...at least at first. The opportunity to gaze upon foreign places, mingle with people from all walks of life, and make the kind of personal connections that permeate the soul is unique when coupled with music. It finds ways to seep into the fabric of a song. Those who tune in are always the ultimate benefactor, as is the case with Angus and Julia Stone's latest album Down the Way.
In this chilly segment of The Guest Apartment at Rockwood Music Hall, the Australian band touches on the American inspirations that string through that album. Down the Way is a travel record after all, and though shivering on the streets of New York, the pair of siblings warm up with stories of a few of the places they have been, and the people they have met. Cut between conversation lie performances of songs that echo the same sentiment..."Big Jet Plane", "For You", and "Santa Monica Dream". It's the kind of portrait that might compel you to book your next vacation on the spot...which is OK. That's why we made an app for you to take this one with you (shameless, Baeble app plug...). - David Pitz
