Brilliant music video for How I Know by Toro Y Moi

Troy Mattison Hicks Reader Find

By Troy Mattison Hicks in New Music on Thursday 11 August 2011

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.

Awesome video for Ane Brun: Do You Remember?

Flux Magazine Reader Find

By Flux Magazine in New Music on Saturday 6 August 2011

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.

Yacht: Utopia/Dystopia (The Earth Is On Fire)

Troy Mattison Hicks Reader Find

By Troy Mattison Hicks in New Music on Monday 4 July 2011

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.

Battles: Ice Cream (Featuring Matias Aguayo)

Jason Howe Reader Find

By Jason Howe in New Music on Saturday 25 June 2011

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.

Woodkid’s awesome video for his song Iron

Steve from Spirit Animal Reader Find

By Steve from Spirit Animal in New Music on Saturday 14 May 2011

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.

The great thing about Hip Hop is that you can be as ironic and tongue in cheek as you like, and some people, somewhere will take it seriously.
