"Only Heather," a New Music Video by Wild Nothing

Music // Monday, February 25, 2013
Wild Nothing (aka Jack Tatum) just released a new music video for the song Only Heather. The video follows a man walking around impaled by a sword, symbolizing (we assume) the pain of a heart broken by a girl probably named Heather.

Music Video: Shugo Tokumaru "Katachi"

Music // Wednesday, January 23, 2013
Stop-motion seems like it has been around and been done well for a long time now, but we still get a kick out of a really well done stop-motion animation. The music video for Shugo Tokumaru's Katachi features a long winding tale of stop-motion fun by directors Kijek/Adamski. It sort of crawls along, literally, and features a footballer, a wolf, a palm tree, an explosion, and people radiating positive vibes.

Music Video: Davie Bowie "Where Are We Now?" by Tony Oursler

Music // Wednesday, January 09, 2013
And out of nowhere came the return of David Bowie. And of course, if Bowie is going to return at the ripe age of 66, he is going to come out with an artistically relevant release. And here it is, the music video for his new single, Where Are We Now?, featuring a great direction by artist Tony Oursler. Watch...

Music Video: Atoms For Peace "Judge Jury and Executioner"

Music Videos We Liked in 2012: The Presets "Promises"

Music // Monday, December 31, 2012
This is a little bit like we are cheating because we just saw this video for the first time this weekend, but we quite enjoy a visual collage of randomness for The Presets track, Promises. Directed by Special Problems, you get a hyper-active tour of what the world looks like if you did a really fast Tumblr search in motion. And that is sort of 2012 summed up...

Music Videos We Liked in 2012: Modeselektor + Thom Yorke "This"

Music // Saturday, December 29, 2012
Okay, we all in agreement that puppets and puppeteering is a little creepy? Of course, I'm going by the Thom Yorke / Modeselektor version of puppeteering, and this brilliantly bizarre video from FutureDeluxe and Andrew Jones for the track "This" that was a standout for us in 2012. Not sure if it is the puppet or puppeteer that takes over and goes beyond the call of reality in this one, but aroudn the 3 minute mark, the world takes a turn.

Music Videos We Liked in 2012: "Nightlife" by Emily Kai Bock

Music // Thursday, December 27, 2012
What we wrote on November 22: Wow. We don't know why we became so transfixed with this video, how we couldn't dare take our eyes off of it, but Emily Kai Bock's Nightlife video for musician Sebastien Schuller is one of the better ones we have seen all year. You don't need a big budget, some grand arching storyline, just an expert idea of light and mood. Somehow, we are either excited about our trip to Miami in two weeks, or terrified. Stunning simplicity at work.

Sigur Ros "Leaning Towards Solace": Directed by Floria Sigismondi

Music // Tuesday, December 11, 2012
Icelandic band, Sigur Rós, have always created music on their own terms with an original sound, production, and visual identity. Over the past year, they have been releasing music videos with renowned filmmakers as part of the Valtari Mystery Film Experiment. Ryan McGinley's film happens to be one of our favorites of the year. To conclude the series, we have the Elle Fanning-starring video by Floria Sigismondi for the track, Leaning Towards Solace. Enjoy.

Music Video: Flying Lotus "Tiny Tortures"

Music // Monday, December 03, 2012
Normally, an Elijah Wood starring video would not make it on our radar, but when it comes in the starring role of an awesomely bizarro music video for Flying Lotus "Tiny Tortures" (off of the sublime FlyLo 2012 album Until The Quiet Comes), we are all ears and eyes. Is it a dream? Where did that hand go? Only director David Lewandowski knows. Watch...
