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.
