We have shown you the posters, we have introduced (or re-introduced) you to the artists and photographers behind the scenes, but today we want to show you some of the music we have been listening to in the office as we put the March 2014 issue together.

Michel Gondry is a bit of an imaginative wizard when it comes to art directed music videos, pretty much putting together some of the most famous music videos of the last two decades (White Stripes, Radiohead, Foo Fighters' "Everlong", Bjork, etc). He has made feature films like "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" and "Science of Sleep" that follow on this DIY, handmade visual effect style, and his new music video for Metronomy's "Love Letters" fits the bill, albeit with a little more set painting... 

Music Video: St Vincent "Digital Witness" dir by Chino Moya

Music // Friday, February 07, 2014
St. Vincent is a very likeable musician whose real name is Annie Clark and has been making good tunes over the past 8 years or so. Her newest LP, a self-titled release, will be out on February 25 in the US via Loma Vista, and Chino Moya directed the video for the first single, "Digital Witness." It sort of goes on Brave New World vibe, or as the press release states, St. Vincent commands "a surreal and futuristic world in which action is synchronized, replicated and repeated."
