This months video playlist jumps off with the Chicago Blues 1972 Documentary we mentioned earlier this month. It addresses life after The Great Migration for Black Americans in Chicago and shows a young Buddy Guy, Junior Wells and Muddy Waters as working class men just playing the blues.
Testify November Playlist also features Dead Man’s Bones full debut album, Timebghost live, Daniel Johnston’s recent live performance on KCRW, Ho99o9′ s Boiler room set, a crazy VR experience from Eden, as well as the immersive moving art of Fluct at Secret Project Robot in Brooklyn, NY.
