Simple Music Video Series: The Weather Station's "Came So Easy"

Posted by on Fri, Sep 28, 2012 at 11:25 AM

A farm in Hillsborough provided the perfect warm-up for The Weather Station, the Canadian act making their first North Carolina visit to perform at Hopscotch Music Festival. The event lends itself to the discovery of new acts, and Tamara Lindeman had been one of the more intriguing selections to play Fletcher Opera Theater in Raleigh, a highly coveted performance hall.

I had only listened to her latest release, All of It Is Mine Once, before seeking her out for a session. After hearing just one song performed live, the mix of The Weather Station's soft-spoken lyrics and beautiful finger-picking style proved wonderfully charming and mesmerizing.

Big thanks to Elysse Thebner of Ampersand Booking for hosting delightful performances at The Farm in Hillsborough.


The purpose of the Independent Weekly's Simple Music Video Series is to capture local and touring musicians who we feel are producing something special. The hope is to capture something very simple in order to mirror the experience of viewing a performance as if you were in a small crowd watching a quiet set. We hope for content of the music to be the primary focus of the series, not multiple camera angles meant to keep the viewer guessing and entertained.

Most bands featured in the series will be a sample of the deep pool of talent in the Triangle, while others will represent some of our touring favorites.

A single noise complaint doesn't mean that they have to leave. Central Park is not and never will be silent.
