USA Election 2008

This is my encounter of the election on November 4th 2008 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.


This night was crazy. So many emotions exploded in such a short period. The atmosphere was a huge ball of nervous energy which tuned into a fine electricity that flowed around everyone. Even still now when watching this video I get chills up my arms. enjoy.

The Temper Trap - Pianos NYC

The Temper Trap - NYC from ameliashaw on Vimeo.

I recently caught up with Melbourne based band, The Temper Trap, in New York City. The four lovely lads are on a whirlwind tour of the UK and US with their manager Danny Rogers.
They played at Pianos in Lower East Side and filled the room, not only with people but with a huge sound that easily grows on you. Here is a bit of footage from their show.

"In May of this year the band entered Melbourne’s Sing Sing Studios to record their much anticipated debut album. They came with a series of epic new tracks, wild dreams and bundles of nervous energy. Renowned UK producer Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, DJ Shadow, Bjork, Massive Attack, Goldfrapp, Kasabian) flew into town to be at the helm and the results of this brilliant new evolution in sound will persuasively draw you in.

The band has conquered adventurous new territory, building on their rich foundations in a natural progression and embellishing the songs with washes of keys, strings and choirs. It is an album equally ambitious as bold – never content to settle into predictability, neither within the confines of a single track or across the spectrum of the album.

Sweet Disposition is the first taster of the album, which will be released in early 2009. It is a definitive statement for both the record, and indeed the band’s unique standing on the Australian musical landscape. Driven by a transfixing guitar melody and brilliant, hypnotic vocal, it morphs into a surging indie rock anthem that you’ll find impossible to ignore."
