"The Burn To Shine series has churned out another in a series of inventive ways (whether their intention or not) to showcase another tremendous local music scene. This time it's Seattle. While it may not blow you away as immediately as the last one featuring Portland, OR, rest assured you will be rewatching this collection of performances again and again discovering some of these extremely diverse new talents---National talents that happen to hail from or reside in Seattle. As in Bob Mould's appearance on the Washington DC Burn To Shine, a legendary Eddie Vedder is brought in and does not disappoint performing solo.
The Long Winters' display of intensity in their live experience will surely demand the attention of their recorded work for watchers. Solo songs by David Bazan (speaking of intensity) and Benjamin Gibbard showed what they do best as well and have never sounded better.
Volume 5 (with volume 4 from Louisville being released out of order later this year) is rounded out fittingly by a soulful performance by Jesse Sykes and the Sweet Heareafter--Sykes is one of the most amazing new performers in America in my opinion and the group consumed with rhythm and blues wisdom beyond their years.
One or more of your favorite new bands is on this DVD....It just works that way every time with Burn To Shine."
