Trailer: Chris Cunningham for Warpaint "Love Is to Die" Documentary

Music // Tuesday, October 08, 2013
Chris Cunningham is a visionary music video director, creating visuals that can potentially outlive the music its made for (although the music of Aphex Twin and others is quite good and longlasting in the mind). Warpaint is a band of 4 women from Los Angeles that make melodic art rock music. Cunningham followed Warpaint for two years and the result is Love Is To Die, a documentary of sorts that we have a teaser for today...

Arcade Fire "Here Comes the Night Time" directed by Roman Coppola

Music // Monday, September 30, 2013
I'm not going to pretend that I was in the best headspace at 1AM on Saturday night when I decided to tune into Arcade Fire's 30 min NBC special that was aired after SNL. Part of me thought, "Hey, bands don't do network specials anymore, and Arcade Fire tend to be on the more interesting end of things, why not pour a little whiskey and watch?" What I turned to was a bizarre, experimental, oddball, celebrity-cameo'd, Roman Coppola-directed entree into the Montreal band's upcoming LP, Reflektor. We got to hand it to NBC... getting this on air takes... well, you know what we mean...

Peter Saville to Re-image Kanye West

Music // Wednesday, September 18, 2013
Before everyone gets all in a huffy about Kanye West and the fact that they think he is an egotistical megalomaniac, we are going to just agree to disagree with you and enjoy the fact that Mr. West has, over the course of his career, collaborated and been art directed by people like Murakami, Kaws, Morning Breath, George Condo, and now, it appears he will be working with legendary graphic artist, Peter Saville.
