Music Video: Breakbot "Baby I'm Yours" watercolor extravaganza

Music // Tuesday, June 04, 2013
Music videos have become a prominent part of what we do here on the Juxtapoz site because a ton of artists we know and enjoy have been getting work in animating, stop-motiong, or directing some of the best videos out there. We haven't seen a good watercolor video this year, or ever, but this video for Breakbot's "Bay I'm Yours" single is comprised of over 2000 individual watercolor paintings, composed by Irina Dakeva at Wizz Productions. For you counting at home, 2,000 is more than a lot. 

Music Video: Vampire Weekend "Diane Young" directed by Primo Kahn

Music // Tuesday, June 04, 2013
Vampire Weekend just released their new LP, Modern Vampires of the City, and over the weekend, we were quite surprised at how subtle and well-arranged the whole affair was. Aesthetically, the band has held their image very close to their sleeve through 3 albums, with smart design and humour. The video for "Diane Young" keeps in the same theme; guest appearences from friends in the Dirty Projectors, Walkmen, Santigold, Sky Ferreira, and masks and bare-chested men. Enjoy. 

Music Video: The Vein "Magma"

Music // Friday, May 31, 2013
Well this is a way to get the Friday going. Dvein has art directed and created this great short music video for the band The Vein and their track "Magma" that reminds us that taking drugs, looking at a portrait of Da Vinci, trying to mix paint, and then walking on a frozen tundra does wonders for the imagination.

Ai WeiWei Releases Heavy Metal Music Video

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 22, 2013
This morning rebel/activist/dissident/badass Chinese artist Ai Weiwei released a heavy metal single and music video on his website. The video and song, entitled Dumbass, features re-creations from his 81 days of detention. Also portraying the rock star fantasies he imagines his guards having, Ai Weiwei told the Guardian that his country was one of "crazy menace and inhuman conditions" and that the video shows an "inch-accurate" recreation of the cell, down to the wallpaper. "...stand on the frontline like a dumbass, in a country that puts out like a hooker. The fields are full of fuckers, dumbasses are everywhere... Fuck forgiveness, tolerance be damned, to hell with manners, the low-life's invincible." - Dumbass
