David LaChapelle has created a candy floss dream for fashion icon Daphne Guinness’ new music video, along with legendary producer Tony Visconti. It’s Ziggy Stardust meets Velvet Goldmine on an overdose of Wild Berry Skittles. In other words, it’s everything you’d want in a (glam) music video.
To promote ManCub’s latest song, director and interactive artist Rajeev Basu created a music video/video game that is guaranteed to not go viral. The premise of the game is … well, waiting in line. That’s it. The most interesting part of the game is punching yourself in the face to stay awake. But don’t punch […]
Murcof (aka Fernando Corona) had been around for some time in various electronic multimedia groups before emerging with his own debut album, Martes, in 2002. He’s signed to UK label Leaf, home of Four Tet, Susumu Yokota and Caribou, among others. I was lucky enough to meet him in a town called Sligo on the […]
Child obesity has become such a large issue in America (pun intended) that not only Michelle Obama, but also the Cookie Monster are advocating for dietary restraint. With the 44th season of Sesame Street about to be released on PBSKids, a few changes were made to the classic children’s show to keep the positive messages […]
Everybody’s breaking badly as Breaking Bad’s final season approaches its end. Here’s something unexpected: a Breaking Bad x Ignition by R. Kelly remix. A butt-load of thanks to whoever made this because you’ve totally broken us to our worst.
Amsterdam-based studio Moniker have created an interesting way to celebrate what they believe is where the cursors can be seen for one last time. Using a music video by the band Light Light, viewers of this website are told that their cursor movements are being recorded and are told to follow certain instructions in rather […]
In this brilliant, and perhaps a little disturbing, video for Is Tropical, the crazy heads at Megaforce came up with the idea of showing a boy’s sexual fantasies… videogame style! It gets crazier and crazier (too crazy perhaps?) as the video goes on, so much so that it’s actually been banned from YouTube.
In this music video, the artist combined traditional watercolor techniques with digital effects. Every texture, illustration or letter was painted and scanned several times to achieve this beautiful effect. It took weeks to produce because of the high level of details and the painting effect the artist wanted to achieve. It’s a brilliant combination of […]
Amanda King’s music is a mesmerizing form of indie folk. The music video for her song Yellow Velvet Mountain, directed by Nicola Smanio, is a mix of live action, plastic lenses, model landscapes and hand-drawn creatures, all spiced up with a bit of dreaminess and mysticism.
To listen to Brooklyn band Natureboy is to enter a submerged world. When I first heard them perform live, I was hypnotized. The second time, I walked up to singer-songwriter Sara Kermanshahi and asked her if she wanted to collaborate. The result is the music video Sugar, from their forthcoming album, The Sweep.
UK brother duo Disclosure, or Guy and Howard Lawrence as they are known individually, are one of my favourite acts to surface recently on the electronic music scene. First grabbing my attention back in 2012 with their killer tune Control, they’re back now with the release of their music video for White Noise, featuring AlunaGeorge. […]
Seyra, a Singapore band, has released their latest music video for their new single Send Me On, an indie-pop tune that gives you a warm fuzzy feeling. Directed by Sean Christie, the animated typography and pastel colors accompany the simple soulful melodies, sending you into one of those wistful afternoon moods.
I came across this Ontario band thanks to NPR’s awesome Tiny Desk concerts. Built around singer and songwriter Tony Dekker, this is music that really touches the soul. This video is a three-song set which includes Everything is Moving So Fast, Pulling on a Line and Various Stages. His voice and music makes me wonder […]
My new EP, The Sudden Stop, was released worldwide on February 14. I use songs to tell myself things I need to hear. As a kind of therapy, I guess. I see two versions of myself with different characteristics. These two guys are at it most of the time, constantly arguing. I kind of write […]
