J And J Presents: Presents: Tunnelvision

I still keep clear of's incredibly boring slices of music criticism and taste-making for the sake of taste-making agenda, but they are still a great source for music news and video content. Their newest project for their own includes the work of several great live music videographers. Ripped straight from their news post:

Sticky floors. Odd smells. A little sweat. There are the tiny details that make concert-going a singular experience. And while there's still no way to fully replicate a live show via the internet, a cavalcade of talented filmmakers are currently working hard at turning the unspoken pleasures of live music into something intimate and artful.

The new program Tunnelvision rounds up the best videographers chronicling independent music across the country under one banner: from Brooklyn's Ray Concepcion and Chocolate Bobka, to Chicago's Acid Marshmallow, to California's Videothing and Yours Truly, to the bicoastal Mostly armed with just a single camera and an exacting eye, these guys have an uncanny knack for putting you right in the thick of it.

There is already a large selection of some stellar live footage, my personal favourite of the moment is this mini-documentary of The Very Best's performance in San Fran, check it!
