I have been following Amsterdam Acoustics since a few months but totally forgot to share this brilliant site. According to the website, Amsterdam Acoustics was started July 2009 to create intimate acoustic sessions with musicians with Amsterdam as a cinematographic background. This has resulted in some really cool videos, which can be viewed here.
Most of the artists are good but not super big (yet!), think of William Fitzsimmons, Peter Bjorn & John, Passion Pit and the likes. The biggest band featured must be The xx, wonder how they got them to join! Below you’ll find their video, an acoustic version of Crystalized. It’s one of my favourite videos and makes me look forward to their sold out show in February!
