I have purchased all of FKA Twigs' albums (even imported one from the UK on vinyl because that was the only way I could get it in a physical format). I am quite engaged by her music and videos (much of which is fairly transgressive and unlike most other music). I have sometimes gone looking for live performances to see if she can perform her stuff live (some people are just studio artists, which is fine, I'm just curious). Most of the footage I have run across has been shot by fans in the audience (<flame>put down your fucking phones and experience life through your own senses, and stop shining your accursed screens in my face as you record you self-centered ... umm, dweebs ... and, ummm, get off my damned lawn! ... Seriously, I went to a fireworks competition and over half the crowd were watching it through their phones and I could barely see the night sky because of the blinding glare of hundreds of backlights ... it was one of the saddest, most pathetic things I have ever seen and sure sign we have lost our way as a "civilization"</flame>), and the audio sucked so hard I couldn't bare to listen, much less watch.

Anyway, I ran across this just now (still studying for my exam on Tuesday) and thought I would share. It was fascinating to see and hear how they brought the sounds of the music to life in a live setting. It was also really interesting to hear her talk (I think this is the first time I've heard her speak in an interview).
