Check It. The Flaming Lips' Black Cab session [The Monday Download].

In my opinion, one of the best ways to pinpoint the bands and musicians who are truly talented are by observing them in their vulnerable moments, without the electronics to amplify their sound or the fancy lights on stage. Put them in situations where anything can happen, and listen to their true voices come through.

La Blogotheque's Take Away Shows are my favorite experiment with this, but I've just discovered another fun project. It's called Black Cab Sessions, and it simply puts bands and musicians into the back of a British black cab and let's them perform. It's super fascinating to see the musicians work with their unplugged sounds. Here's the latest Black Cab Session, from the Flaming Lips:
