Lake Lustre’s Shoplifter: video directed by Joe A. Scerri

Kira Heuer Reader Find

By Kira Heuer in Video on Wednesday 14 April 2010

Lake Lustre’s beguiling track Shoplifter takes me through a journey of many earths. I feel enchanted. With eyes closed, I begin to twirl, surrounded by cherry blossoms. Then, when the voice enters the song, I am catapulted back in my room, sweetly content to just lie and listen. This is very clearly a keyhole into […]

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in Video on Thursday 3 December 2009

I couldn’t care less about Royksopp, and I have a knee-jerk aversion to Burning Man, but this video pretty much encapsulates what I want my life to be like in the future.

Röyksopp’s This Must Be It video

Zolton Contributor

By Zolton in Video on Friday 2 October 2009

For the video for their latest single, This Must Be It, Norwegian uber-producers Röyksopp ditched the futuristic stylings and went back to their … ah … roots. Or at least, the roots of a motley collection of tribal dancers. Interesting.

Wooden Birds’ Hometown Fantasy video

Casper Johansson Reader Find

By Casper Johansson in Video on Friday 28 August 2009

The Wooden Birds’ first album, Magnolia, is out on Barsuk Records. Fans of the AmAnSet will recognize Andrew Kenny’s voice and songwriting immediately, but the arrangements on Magnolia are more vocal and percussion heavy than anything he’s done before. Full of guitar-top drumming and beautiful harmonies, and anchored by Kenny’s percolating, vibey bass, Magnolia rolls […]

Cazwell’s earworm: I Seen Beyonce At Burger King

Casper Johansson Reader Find

By Casper Johansson in New Music on Monday 25 May 2009

Having collaborated over the years with the likes of Amanda Lepore, Larry Tee, Boy George, and David Lachapelle, Cazwell’s fun mix of electrified dance music and old school hip hop embodies the same spirit of goofball experimentation that has been the hallmark of artists like M.I.A., Neneh Cherry, Eminem and Deee-lite. All of which is […]

Secret Mommy

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in New Trends on Friday 6 March 2009

Andy Dixon, aka Secret Mommy, pieces together glitched-out dance tracks often out of unusual field recordings. His album, Very Rec, is a danceable sound collage, focusing completely on making beats out of animal sounds, laughing children, grunting weight-lifters, people playing tennis, and other unusual sample sources while eschewing the emo-ish vocals he sometimes includes in […]

School Of Seven Bells Half Asleep video

Casper Johansson Reader Find

By Casper Johansson in Video on Friday 13 February 2009

In School of Seven Bells’ music, a human element lurks behind a veil of technology and noise. Toby Holbrooks’ video for the Brooklyn trio’s single, Half Asleep, follows suit, depicting twin vocalists, Alejandra and Claudia Deheza, as earthbound beauties, while complicating their image through sped-up film, gauzy overlays, and brightly colored, weather-like disturbances. The clip […]

Little Red’s Witchdoctor

Huna Amweero Reader Find

By Huna Amweero in Video on Tuesday 2 September 2008

This is the first video from the debut LP of Melbournites Little Red. Witchdoctor has a fantastic old school feel, with its barbershop vocals and 60s pop sensibilities and collar-shirted young men. It’s funny how a video featuring beautifully delinquent young women appeals to the small part of me that is still somewhat wholesome. I’m […]
