New Video – Petite Meller : Backpack

Mann & Napoleon Habeica (the Mexican photographer who created the American Apparel visual aesthetic),”Backpack” is a memoir of a French summer vacance, shot in the French Riviera that pays homage to French New Wave Cinema, winking at Godard’s “Pierrot le Fou” and George Henri Cluzot’s “L’Enfer”.

Video – Blue Hawaii : Try To Be

Blue Hawaii, Arbutus Records and many of their Montreal counter-parts all began with the same breath in early 2010. To date they’ve released an 8 song EP: in May of that year, Blooming Summer (Arbutus Records 2010) was recorded following the pair’s travels in Central America. It frames a time of warmth and novelty, featuring dense female harmonies, tape saturated synths, guitars and drum machines. Eventually Ra– returned to her role in BRAIDS, touring constantly, while Ag–moved to Europe, treading deeper into dance music, electronics, and production.

The duo notice that throughout the changing social and personal landscape which is one’s twenties, these divided notions and people somehow stay together. Even the name Blue Hawaii suggests a kind of melancholic, jaded paradise, but a paradise afterall. It is because – or perhaps in spite of – these disjointed intersections that the record is called Untogether.

Interactive Video – Califone : Stitches

In a groundbreaking use of Tumblr, Califone, in conjunction with filmmaker Braden King and programmer Jeff Garneau, have debuted the new interactive video for their first single, “Stitches.” This ever-changing ‘music video’ creates itself on the fly using static imagery and animated GIFs drawn from a curated subset of blogs within the Tumblr ecosystem. No two passes of the video are ever the same. The piece treats the images on-the-fly to give it a unified aesthetic and allows for user interactivity: if a viewer mouses-over an image, it is pulled to the top “layer” of the image stream and its color returns.

Video – The Knife : A Tooth For An Eye

‘A Tooth For An Eye’ from The Knife’s forthcoming album ‘Shaking The Habitual’ released on 8/9 April. Available to pre order here: theknife.net/shaking-the-habitual

‘A Tooth For An Eye’ deconstructs images of maleness, power and leadership. Who are the people we trust as our leaders and why? What do we have to learn from those we consider inferior? In a sport setting where one would traditionally consider a group of men as powerful and in charge, an unexpected leader emerges. A child enters and allows the men to let go of their hierarchies, machismo and fear of intimacy, as they follow her into a dance. Their lack of expertise and vulnerability shines through as they perform the choreography. Amateurs and skilled dancers alike express joy and a sense of freedom; There is no prestige in their performance. The child is powerful, tough and sweet all at once, roaring “I’m telling you stories, trust me”. There is no shame in her girliness, rather she possesses knowledge that the men lost a long time ago.

Video – Nite Jewel : Memory, Man

Nite Jewel has a new video for her song “Memory, Man” directed by Angus Borsos of Helium Castle Pictures. The gorgeous and enigmatic video takes the viewer through an Michel Gondry-esque dreamscape. Borsos’ cinematography and creative composition evoke the feeling of being inside someone’s memory.
Borsos offers this director’s statement:
Hypnotized by a blue sky — dark blue started to drip down my spine and I started to dream things up behind the front of my eyes. Leading up to working with Ramona I felt that most of the images I was being exposed to were lacking an undercurrent — that I was lacking an undercurrent, that images were being carefully placed as opposed to being carefully grown. Tunnelling with the song I started to see the video as a trunk of rich still life paintings — Ramona as a living statue on a stage, looking through the many dimensions of her memory; no reality. I hoped that it would read like a timeless old book of her past (or yours) that she (or you) can’t quite place — but somehow managed to record in startlingly high resolution — proof that it’s there (for now), and that memory is camouflage. 

Video – SSION : Luvvbazaar

After watching the new Mitch Moore directed video from SSION for “Luvvbazaar”, you will probably never see CVS in the same light again, and that is a good thing.

Video – Django Django : Hand of Man

Django Django has partnered up with Bafta Award winning director John Maclean, the brother of Django drummer/producer Dave Maclean, for the “Hand of Man” videoThey are excited to present this beautifully shot, monochromatic masterpiece, premiered this morning on Nowness. John expands on the film:

“Filmed on black and white super-8 stock. The end of great things. The party was the last day in our friend’s building which will inevitably be knocked down to make way for more dodgy flats with tiny triangle balconies – art, film and music studios destroyed to make way for fast-buck housing developers pricing the working classes and the artists out of central London. The end of film developers and Kodak film stock. And the beginning of great things, Django Django, the spirit of youth, integrity finding a way to live forever, and fresh bread.”

Video – Cold Specks : Hector

Posted in MUSIC, Music Video

Self-proclaimed as “doom soul”, the music of Cold Specks draws on folk and gospel elements, with a strong personal interpretation. At times it can be heavy and bleak, but the willful, raspy vocals of Al Spx offer an element of brightness. The weight of each track grows slowly and as her velvetly vocals hit your ears, you will instantly feel swathed in this warm blanket-like familiarity.
