Clawing Out at the Walls by Dominant Legs from Big Ugly Yellow Couch on Vimeo.
Of the many regularly occurring “live session” videos sprouting up around the internet, I’ve grown to enjoy the Big Ugly Yellow Couch sessions — my favorites include the episodes with Twin Sister, Dawes and Maps & Atlases. The Brooklyn-based series’ latest comes from one of our own, Dominant Legs.
Something about the crowded shots required from filming in this living space give a similar feeling to an impromptu jam sesh circa college, but in a most endearing way. We all find this situation far too familiar: you’re at a house party, someone finds the acoustic guitar in a corner of the living room, and before you know it, you’re part of a crowded audience fighting for a spot on the carpet with a good view, which is also close to the maracas if you feel like you may need them.
Get away from your cubicle or kitchen table and find a good seat on the carpet for an up-close-and-personal view of Ryan Lynch on the yellow couch.
