Today’s song is by a folk/rock duo from Sheffield, England called Slow Club. The video below is a recording of a live performance of Christmas TV at South Street Seaport in New York City. I love the pure, simple vocals, instrumentation and attitude. I also love the way these two are immersed in a crowd on the street, with no microphones or amplification. It’s the most direct, intimate kind of musical performance – this video makes me wish I had been there.
Bonus video: here’s Slow Club performing When I Go as part of the excellent Bandstand Busking series.
