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...

Music Video: Arcade Fire "Reflektor" dir by Anton Corbijn

Anton Corbijn, who shot the photo of Tom Waits on the cover of our October 2013 issue, directs this sprawling Talking Heads meets Bee Gees meets Daft Punk meets Arcade Fire meets LCD Soundsystem (he did produce the track) track "Reflektor" for the Montreal-based band.

'Tom Waits for No One,' an Animated Short from 1979

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 05, 2013
We are celebrating our October 2013; Tom Waits issue in the office this month and begin with this short rotoscoped movie staring Tom from 1979. Produced and directed by John Lam, it was among the first music videos created specifically for the up and coming MTV market. Inspired by his performance at the Roxy in 1977, the short was unfortunately never released commercially and didn't see the light of day until the advent of YouTube. The combination of rotoscoping and pencil test used in the short was innovative at the time and helped Lamb win an Academy Award for Scientific and Technical Achievement. The production team also consisted of future animators for the Simpsons, Monster’s Inc. and Disney!

The Music Videos of Jonas Odell

Swedish music video director Jonas Odell is behind the snappy, graphic design heavy video for the new Franz Ferdinand track, "Right Action," but has also been at the helm of some other great videos in recent years. Not only did he do the video for the Franz Ferdinand accidental mega hit "Take Me Out," he has done work for U2, The Hours, Goldfrapp, and The Rolling Stones. Enjoy a music break...

Erotica // Tuesday, August 27, 2013
Art direction team "CINCØ" has released a pornographic-ish music video for PONCHO, an electronic band from Buenos Aires. The result is quite interesting; you'll never look at the Jack in the Box guy the same again. Take a look!

Music Video: Portugal. The Man "Modern Jesus" dir AG Rojas

Music // Tuesday, August 20, 2013
Portugal. The Man have been making great videos for years, but this recent gem from director AG Rojas for the track "Modern Jesus" may be our favorite to date. Just kind of watching the world go by in all its beautiful destruction and almost drug-fueled banality. Love this clip... 

Music Video: Nabil Directs Just Blaze & Baauer's "Higher"

Music // Thursday, August 15, 2013
The new video for Just Blaze & Baauer's latest track "Higher" is one of the most beautifully shot we have seen in a while. However, this is not surprising considering renowned director Nabil is the man behind it. The video tells the the epic story of a group of Kalaripayattu warriors (martial artists) and a spirited young kid in Kerala, India, who leads his fellow child vigilantes to fight a drunk bully.
