During the first season of IFC’s hit comedy “Portlandia,” the world found out a little secret. That the Dream of the 90s was alive in Portland, Oregon. However as Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein began production of the second season of the hit comedy, they realized that there was another way of looking at what the 90s were. That’s when the Dream of the 1890s was born. In this video, we go behind-the-scenes of “Portlandia” with the show’s stars, creators, writers and director Jonathan Krisel as they talk about the creative process and the inspiration for the new old dream:

As every parent knows, your child’s future depends on the foundation you build in the formative early years. So if your child’s teacher doesn’t know who Neu is or even Clash songs earlier than Rock the Casbah, you as your child’s guardian have to take action. Watch this training video below for some pointers from Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein as to how it’s done. And whatever you do, don’t be like Modest Mouse’s Isaac Brock.:

Watch This: St.Vincent on Portlandia and the 4AD Sessions

Annie Clark, who is perhaps better known as St. Vincent, is a woman of many talents. She knows all the words to at least one Pearl Jam song, she appeared in tonight’s episode of “Portlandia” helping Fred and Carrie polish the Portland Police Department’s image, and, of course, she can sing and play a guitar better than almost anyone.

St. Vincent’s third LP, Strange Mercy, is a brilliant mix of the angel-voiced Clark, roaring guitars, and an unseemly darkness that creates a welcoming depth. It’s a truly gorgeous and compelling album filled with hooks and lyrics that make you think about love, broken dreams, and all those other things that great songs are built on. In the track “Cheerleader,” Clark paints a poignant picture of dashed dreams and love gone wrong, but pairs that pathos with a guitar track that makes the bitter truth almost danceable.

St. Vincent stopped by her record label to play a set for their aptly named 4AD Sessions. We are thrilled to debut a brand-new clip from her gorgeous performance of “Cheerleader” on the 4AD Sessions. Watch below and then run and don’t walk to pick up St. Vincent’s staggeringly brilliant album . . .
