Music // Tuesday, April 09, 2013
Cat Power's simple but nicely done music video for her song Manhattan makes us miss New York. Directed by Greg Hunt, the video features Cat hanging out and wandering around the city...  

Music Video: Wavves "Afraid of Heights"

Music // Wednesday, March 27, 2013
We are almost, so close, to the dawning of Spring, and we think its good timing for a new album from San Diego band Wavves. The album title, Afraid of Heights, also has a track by the same name, and a video of lo-fi, Super 8, drag queen night out... and what we call Wednesday. 

Music Video: Vampire Weekend "Step"

Music // Friday, March 22, 2013
Even if you aren't a huge fan of the music of Vampire Weekend, there is something to admire about their artistic practice when it comes to their image. Consistent, unwavering, and clean are words that come to mind, and the look for their upcoming LP, Modern Vampires of The City, keeps with the solid block logo of the band a timeless, if not iconic even-though-you-haven't-seen-it-yet photo for the album cover. The video for the new single, "Step", uses  beautiful, subdued footage of NYC with type that would make Wes Anderson happy.

Music Video: Foals "My Number" directed by US

Music // Thursday, March 21, 2013
Two things are working quite nicely here. One, this track from UK-band Foals, "My Number," from their LP Holy Fire, is really solid, and the directors of the video, US (the directing duo consisting of Christopher Barrett and Luke Taylor) have done a brilliant job with motion capturing the band in a unique and slightly "draw-by-numbers" video. Well, it's better than than. Just watch...   

Music Video: British Sea Power "Machineries Of Joy"

Music // Tuesday, March 19, 2013
Musically and aesthetically, British Sea Power have always treaded a fine line between pop and experimentation, whether playing a full concert in a cave or writing a catchy tune about a melting iceberg. What we are trying to say is that they are really good. On April 1, BSP will release Machineries of Joy via Rough Trade, and their first video for the record features bikes, the countryside, and a girl who may be lost.

Music Video: Haim "Falling" Directed by Tabitha Denholm

Erotica // Friday, March 15, 2013
Straight from LA'a Angelus mountains, Haim have released their latest song "Falling" along with a video directed by Tabitha Denholm. Creating a story of innocent-looking sisters transforming into playful, 70's style girls. This vintage style video involves high-waisted skirts, button-up blouses and long, flowing hair. Capturing the essence of Haim's live shows...  

Music Video: Sin Fang "Look At the Light"

Music // Thursday, March 14, 2013
We are always looking for great music videos, either in their simplistic mastery of their full-blown artistic expression. Oh, and it helps if the song is good. Sin Fang's "Look At the Light" video, directed by Máni M. Sigfússon who is actually the person behind Sin Fang, is a stunning piece of video art, taking some of the concepts we have loved recently in the double-exposure works of Pat Perry or Oriol Angrill Jordà, but adding some experimental digital elements. 

Music Video: Atoms For Peace "Ingenue" directed by Garth Jennings

Music // Friday, March 01, 2013
Last time we engaged with Thom Yorke and music videos, it happened to be him dancing to an abstract choreographed routine prepared by Wayne McGregor for the Radiohead video "Lotus Flower." Mr Yorke is now working on his new project, Atoms For Peace and the newly released LP Amok, and again is working in movement with McGregor and director Garth Jennings. This time, we have khaki suits and dancer Fukiko Takase and the mellow, sublime track "Ingenue."
