This is a fun new video by Toro Y Moi. Like scenes cut from that 1990s movie, The Frighteners, it’s a perfect goof-off, with colors from outerspace and funky animation on top of a great end of Summer song. How I Know is taken from the album Underneath the Pine.
Ane Brun’s Do You Remember? is like a lost dream, fragments of which your mind insists on spewing back out at you. Fear starts to arise as military drums placate the appearance of a military jacket, which is then cued only by the arrival of a bed-ridden gentleman.
What do you get if you take an architect and a classic ballerina? A Body Architect. That’s the official title of Lucy McRae, an Australian girl trained in both fields, who invents and builds structures on the skin that re-shape the human silhouette.
Honeydrum has a new EP called Pleasures of the Sun for AMDISCS coming out on July 15. These lo-fi kids are cranking out really wonderful cassettes of swirly baritone pop, totally pure and perfect.
Keller Williams is better known for his bluegrass beats than his circus talents. Armed with a ten-string guitar and a Gisbon looping unit, this guy works all kinds of magic for blues and roots and experimental music fans alike.
Weird little video from Yacht for new song Utopia/Dystopia (The Earth Is On Fire). The spatial environment in the video is a 3D visualization of the ideas of the radical architecture group Superstudio, whose vision of Utopia was a world without buildings and objects.
I’m always drawn to originality and a contemporary beyond the new, especially in the fine art of painting, but also, just as importantly, in music. Pushing the boundaries of what is rock, Battles create a sound I think a group of five year olds would make if they had twenty years musical experience.
A few weeks ago, I posted a link to up and coming American-Japanese director David Takeo Neptune’s Onstar parody. Here is the beautiful new music video he just shot for the Ken Tanaka Band.
The video for Woodkid’s Iron looks like it had the budget of a 1999 Limp Bizkit video. There is intense slow-mo, explosions, a white horse, and I think someone’s famous girlfriend is in it holding an owl on a really sweet medieval-looking arm piece. Definitely reminiscent of the heyday of MTV impact.
This video was shot and edited around the same time as our video for Sing [watch below]. Both were done by our good friend (and general boy genius), director Jeff Ray. This guy is stupid good behind the camera.
Jay Haze has so many projects, it’s hard to keep them all straight. He is constantly traveling to some of the poorest regions of the globe and helping people with his charity work, while at the same time producing deep and moving techno and electronic music. This video was shot doing both in El Salvador […]
