Salt of the Earth music videos

Mathieu Saura, also known as Vincent Moon, is the founder of the French blog La Blogotheque and a prolific producer of down to earth, folky music videos for a slew of bands such as Sonic Youth, Battles, REM and Architecture in Helsinki. Here's the lovely Marla Hansen track "New Zealand," shot in Central Park.

The following video was included in this article:

From the Yahoo! News article (link below):

"The environs recall another outdoor French movement: the Impressionists. Instead of painting, it's music en plein air.

'As far as the modern world is concerned, these are natural environments,' said Zach Condon, lead singer of the Balkan-flavored band Beirut. The group did a full album's worth of Take-Away Shows for their last disc, 'Flying Club Cup.' 'It's filmed in its own elements, from where it came from — the streets and the bars and people's apartments.' "

Of course, be sure to check out his YouTube channel.
