Sometimes the Stars – The Audreys

Friday, May 27th, 2011

“Sometimes the Stars” is a gorgeous new song from Adelaide, Australia band The Audreys, taken from their 2010 album of the same name. The accompanying short animated film, produced by Luke Jurevicius and directed by Ari Gibson & Jason Pamment, is about a lost girl’s journey through a surreal landscape, and her yearning to make a connection in this distant yet strangely familiar world.

Tracktor Bowling Unplugged – IRU.TV

Friday, March 4th, 2011

Tracktor Bowling — сегодня один из самых ярких музыкальных коллективов на российской альтернативной сцене. Группа образовалась в 1996 году, но первый полноценный альбом вышел через целых шесть лет — в 2002. Основная «изюминка» коллектива — женский вокал вместе с очень тяжелым гитарным звучанием. Тексты — на русском языке. На сегодняшний день музыкальный стиль группы можно охарактеризовать так: современная тяжелая гитарная рок-музыка. Гремучая смесь самых актуальных мировых музыкальных направлений.

Eye of the Storm – Ben Lovett

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

Check out this brilliant music video for “Eye of the Storm” by artist Ben Lovett from his soon to be released album “Highway Collection”. Director Chris Alender and producer Kris Eber of Soapbox Films describe the project as “the story of a lonely captain who has to unshackle himself from a troublesome past in order to move on to the next chapter in his life.” I recommend you watch it fullscreen. The visuals are truly stunning. There’s also a behind the scenes video if you’re interested in how it was made.

Thought of You – Ryan Woodward

Monday, December 20th, 2010

I just stumbled upon this animation at Vimeo and fell in love with it. This little treasure was animated by Ryan Woodward with music by The Weepies. The minute I started watching I knew I had to post it to my blog. I also knew I had to hop over to iTunes and buy the album. Hope you like it!

Faunts – “M4 Part II”

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

I just discovered Faunts this week, an indie rock band from Edmonton Alberta Canada. I quickly got sucked into their gorgeous, lush shoe-gazey indie rock. The band’s combination of ambient guitar, soft drums and ethereal keys is mesmerizing. This is a band of perfectionists. Every movement is agonized over – every melody is deconstructed and explored. I tracked down one of their music videos to share with you. Enjoy!

Say Hi – “One, Two, One…”

Sunday, July 25th, 2010

They say “there is no accounting for taste” and there are few better examples of this than the music videos I post on this blog. I can’t even really define what it is I like about this one. It’s the video for the song “One, Two, One…” by Say Hi from the album “Oohs & Aahs”. Whenever I hear the song (I’ve got the album in my iTunes library), it gets stuck in my head. The video is fun and well made although in my opinion the framing is a bit too tight which occasionally makes me feel uncomfortable but I have personal space issues. And I’m not sure why it was filmed in super wide screen. It may have been the intention of director Drew Norton to portray perhaps along with the tight framing a sense of inescapability, but if that were the case, it shouldn’t have been filmed in a spacious wide open field. Perhaps it’s the contrasts in these themes I find intriguing. In any case, I wanted to post it here to keep it handy and see if any one else has any opinions on it.
