Music Video: CARIBOU "Our Love"

Music // Tuesday, October 07, 2014
We have been looking forward to Caribou's new LP, Our Love, to drop, and finally today its "officially" out for consumers to purchase. We think its one of his absolute best albums, and Caribou just released a video for the title track with music video director Ryan Staake of Pomp & Clout. The director say of the video, "In "Our Love", I wanted to create a slow, brooding film that contrasted the seeming limitless of youth with the reality of death in later years. The film (which was photographed by Luca Ciuti) was shot on location in Ireland, at the beautiful Lough Ine House, about an hour and a half outside of Cork."

Music Video: Flying Lotus "Never Catch Me" ft. Kendrick Lamar

Music // Friday, October 03, 2014
We have been anticipating Flying Lotus' new album, "You're Dead," all summer long, and the album is set to hit... er, shops(?) on October 6/7 via Warp Records. Hiro Mural just directed the video for the track "Never Catch Me" featuring a well-played vocal by Kendrick Lamar. Beautiful video, great track... can't wait to hear the whole thing. 

Music Video: Thom Yorke "A Brain In A Bottle"

Music // Wednesday, October 01, 2014
We don't think Thom Yorke likes doing pre-press to announce his albums. Sure, he likes the BitTorrent route he went with his new LP, "Tomorrow's Modern Boxes," and he likes the idea of getting rid of middle men and giving artists the chance to make their own money from their art and craft, but I'm convinced he wants to avoid talking to music journalists every few years to talk shop. So we get an unexpected album, and we get a glitchy video of Thom with boxing gloves for the opening track "A Brain In A Bottle," and all is good.

Thomas Pynchon's "Inherent Vice" gets the Paul Thomas Anderson film treatment—Trailer

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 30, 2014
We have been wondering how esteemed director Paul Thomas Anderson was going to tackle the depth and wormhold writing-stlye of Thomas Pynchon and capture it in a coherent film, but PTA is the man to do the job if there ever was anyone. "Inherent Vice" originally was published in 2009, and Anderson signed up to direct the film not that much later. Now we have a trailer for the film, set to release in December 2014, with starring roles from Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Katherine Waterston, Reese Witherspoon, Benicio del Toro, Jena Malone, Maya Rudolph, and Martin Short.

In this short clip, video essayist kogonada captures Hitchcock's character's eyes, beginning with a zoom into red eyes from Vertigo's opening credits and Janet Leigh's dead eyes in Psycho. Whether it was fear, anger, excitement, hypnosis, or understanding, Hitchock captured it best.
