Video Of The Day: Golden Age Sessions featuring Lydia Cole

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video Of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

There are times, dear friends, that I wish I had my own recording studio. This is one of those times. Some good people in Auckland, New Zealand, got together and cooked up a plot to bring people to a studio and have them record acoustic versions of cover songs. Yep, I totally want to do this too. The Golden Age Sessions, as this project is called, gets underway with a session with Lydia Cole. Cole, in this impeccably-shot video, appears not only to have seriously flawless skin but a heck of a powerful voice to boot, and she can strum an acoustic guitar ever so prettily. She takes HAIM and goes in a different, blue direction, and the result is totally gorgeous. It's a winning concept as far as I'm concerned.  

Side note: this is the same studio where Lorde recorded Pure Heroine. I'm hooked.
