Watch: Becky & Joe's Man Ray-Inspired Music Video for Delicate Steve

Music // Monday, May 13, 2013
We are on a music video kick this morning, Becky & Joe are back again with another great handcrafted music video! We loved their psychedelic plasticine collage video for Tame Impala's "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards." This time, inspired by Man Ray, they used drawing, scratching, and mark making on actual Super 8, 16, and 35 mm film and acetate sheets for their video for Delicate Steve! Watch it after the jump!

Watch: "Blown Minded," New Music Video for Young Galaxy by Carine Khalife

Music // Monday, May 13, 2013
Young Galaxy's latest music video for their 2011 track Blown Minded was produced, directed, and animated by Montreal-based visual artist Carine Khalife using only oil paint on glass. Explaining her technique, Khalife says, "I would paint on the glass with oil so that it wouldn't dry, and I could play with it for hours. A camera, fixed overhead above the animation table and plugged in my computer, would capture my paintings frame by frame and create the animation..."

A Musical Poster by Trapped in Suburbia

Music // Tuesday, May 07, 2013
Trapped in Suburbia has produced a new interactive print, Sounds Poster 1.0, that you can play like an instrument. The poster is the "first design in a series of 'analogue meets digital' experiments." The user places one finger on a tab at the bottom of the poster and then can move the other hand over the different shapes in the poster to create different, very abstract sounds. Watch a video after the jump...

Music Video: The Flaming Lips "You Lust" (NSFW)

Music // Monday, May 06, 2013
Nothing says let's wake up on a Monday morning and see some weird like watching two naked bodies get all lab tested and futuristic along with the music of The Flaming Lips. "You Lust" is a track from the Lips' new LP, The Terror, is a long, winding, 13-minute epic, but thank you to Oklahoma's finest, this is along 4 minutes long. NSFW because this contains a full 4-minutes of nude bodies going all Matrix on you. 

Magazine: Mark Ryden and The Odd Future Frontman Become Friends

Music // Tuesday, April 30, 2013
"It seemed like the unlikeliest of requests. In the summer of 2012, hip-hop collective Odd Future seized international attention across music and fashion publications, both for their brash attitude and a contemporary skate aesthetic, taking the world by storm. The last thing that would cross your mind was that Tyler, the Creator, the unrivaled leader of OF, would like to get in contact with Mark Ryden, the artists renowned for his Pop Surreal paintings..." - May 2013 Issue of Juxtapoz Magazine

Live Visuals for Atoms For Peace by Tarik Barri

We spent the weekend enjoying the visuals that have been projected behind the performances of Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich as they "DJ/perform" in support of the new LP, AMOK, by their group Atoms For Peace. As was the video for "Judge, Jury, Executioner," visual artist Tarik Barri has been on stage with Atoms For Peace providing live visuals... and they fit the experience perfectly. Watch...

Ragnar Kjartansson x The National "A Lot of Sorrow" @ MoMA PS1, Long Island City

Music // Thursday, April 25, 2013
Phish probably pulled off the six-hour show, and perhaps for some, it all sounded like the same song. Well, Brooklyn's The National is going to take this concept up a notch. In collaboration with Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson, the band will play their track "Sorrow" from the 2010 LP High Violet, for six straight, continuous hours. That's right, 360 minutes, and because the song is around 3:25, that is just a lot of "Sorrow" in a row. The artist's idea? "By stretching a single pop song into a day-long tour de force the artist continues his explorations into the potential of repetitive performance to produce sculptural presence within sound."

Music Video: Wild Nothing "A Dancing Shell" featuring works by Eric Shaw

Music // Tuesday, April 23, 2013
We have shown the psychedelic works of Eric Shaw on our site before, and when we saw this new Wild Nothing video for the track, "A Dancing Shell," we thought, this shit looks familiar? Not in the, this art is shit sort of way, but in the, hey that is fun and familiar. Sure enough, this video, directed by Hayley Akins, with animation by Hayley and Andy Williams, features the paintings of Eric Shaw. We recommend watching it at the highest HD you can do, full screen, and eat a mushroom cap. Just one. Wait, don't do that.
