Wooden Shjips – “Lazy Bones” Video (Directed By Black Dice)

Brooklyn art-music crew Black Dice have directed the newest video for San Fransisco space-rock stompers Wooden Shjips. Black Dice’s clip for “Lazy Bones” is a dense and hyperactive barrage of bright colors and random white-noise imagery, and it’ll make your eyes hurt and your brain feel like warm mud.

Holy Ghost! - "Hold My Breath"

New York disco crew Holy Ghost! have a new video for “Holy My Breath,” a track from their self-titled album. Ben Fries, the man behind their great “Wait & See” video, also directed this one, and it mostly consists of a photo montage of the band members’ lives. Those lives look fun! Various DFA-type celebrities like James Murphy and Luke Jenner make super-brief appearances.

"Thunder-LOL-Cats" - MAD TV

...And why?

Schrödinger's Cat

No cats were harmed in the making of this video.

New Scientist produced a new One-Minute Physics animation to explain the Schrödinger’s cat thought experiment in a hurry. As if you could explain “collapsed realities” in one minute. Still, it’s a cute cartoon. Link


Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – “If I Had A Gun…”

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds‘ music video for “If I Had A Gun…”, our latest taste from their upcoming S/T debut, is quite reminiscent of the 1967 film The Graduate (Liam Gallagher will probably claim his older bro just ripped ‘em off). However, instead of Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft running way on a bus, a rugged cowboy rides in to interrupt the ceremony, leading to the handsome stranger and the bride sealing their love with a kiss in the deep end. Despite the cliché, what makes the video truly worth watching is one simple casting choice: Noel Gallagher plays the priest officiating the wedding. Now that’s some damn good fiction!

Opeth - "The Devil's Orchard"

Imagine if Dario Argento’s ’70s horror movies had weird half-animated opening-credits sequences with girls’ silhouettes in them, the way James Bond movies do. That’s pretty much Opeth’s new “The Devil’s Orchard” video, except this one is seven minutes long. In super-stylized fake-grainy images, we see cities falling under curses and bodies falling through dimensional portals, or something. Phil Mucci directs.

Dum Dum Girls – “Bedroom Eyes”

Accompanying this week's release of their new LP, Only in Dreams, Dum Dum Girls unveil their new video for their new single "Bedroom Eyes". The clip captures the Californian indie pop band performing the cut until the visual becomes a more kaleidoscopic and trippy experience.

Björk – “Moon” Video

Biophilia‘s release got pushed back a couple of weeks, but here’s the clip for “Moon,” which is basically an animated version of the album cover. High-art cohorts Inez and Vinoodh helped out with the production and direction.

Written by björk and damian taylor.

Directed, produced and art directed by björk, inez and vinoodh, m/m paris and james merry.

Young Galaxy – “Peripheral Visionaries”

Canuck dream pop outfit Young Galaxy has a way with shoegazey, lurid indie rock, and its latest animated video is a blissfully bizarre affair involving a skeleton, space, and Grimace from the McDonald’s ads. Well, not really. But you’ll see what I mean.

DopeHead – “Airbags”

DopeHead – “Airbags” (Dir. Storymode)

Nothing flashy here, but this is just a classic-style local-pride rap video done with artful precision. If Rap City still existed, this would get played at least a couple of times a week. Instead, it lives on the internet.

Com Truise – “Brokendate”

Will Joines directs this Blade Runner-esque clip for Com Truise’s “Brokendate,” and the combination of Seth Haley’s bleating analong synths and Joines’s dystopian futurescape is a relatively perfect match. The song could probably work in a Tron sex scene, if there were such a thing.

of Montreal – L’age D’or (NSFW)

The Golden Age is not what it used to be as Athens rock collective of Montreal turn in a weirdo/psychedelic visual for their latest single "L'age D'or" off their current thecontrollersphere EP. Director Nina Barnes decides to take this beyond the NSFW line during the second half of the video. Probably an adequate approach regarding the song's extravagant lyrics. Watch it above unless you are at work.

Pepsi – Music Icons (Featuring Britney Spears, Michael Jackson, Kanye West, Mariah Carey + Ray Charles)

Pepsi presents their latest television commercial titled "Music Icons," celebrating Pepsi's music history, which includes the likes of Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, Kanye West, Ray Charles and Mariah Carey. In accordance with its slogan, "Where there's Pepsi, there's music", the spot reflects on memorable moments such as Michael Jackson introducing the new "Pepsi Generation" and Ray Charles playing the piano to the (Prince-penned) tune of "You Got the Right One, Baby, Uh Huh" and more. "Music Icons" debuted during last night's "X Factor" premiere. Frank Cooper, Chief Marketing Officer, Global Consumer Engagement of PepsiCo Beverages, explains:

"Pepsi has always been at the center of music and pop culture and is known for featuring top talent in its campaigns. We're confident that the next pop music star will emerge from our partnership with 'The X Factor.'"

As the musical background serves a Pepsi-exclusive remix of the song, "Tonight is the Night" by Yonkers' very own Outasight, who recently signed to Warner Bros. Records.

Wale – Bait (NSFW)

Wale unleashes a brand new visual to accompany one of his latest tunes "Bait." You'll find the DC spitter alongside Ross making it rain quite heavily in the club. The song will also appear on Wale's upcoming project due out November 1, 2011, Ambition. Warning NSFW!


Wavves - "Bug"

Things you'll find in the video for Wavves' "Bug", from the Life Sux EP: board games, beer cans, what is presumably weed being smoked, mermaids, cops, a guy that kills cops, and a blood-splattered picture of Dave Grohl (of course).

Mastodon - Curl Of The Burl

Mastodon’s new video is for “Curl Of The Burl,” their single from the new album The Hunter, and it plays out like an acid-fried B-movie. If you love Evil Dead 2, you’ll probably find something to like about it. If you don’t love Evil Dead 2, you and I would probably not be very good friends. Robert Schober directs, but the video concept comes from Mastodon drummer Brann Dailor, who seems to be the band’s concepts guy. The caveman from the “Divinations” video would be proud.

Good music video for “Own Rocket” from Soupaczar. Directed by Rino Stefano Tagliafierro.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra just released this clip for Unknown Mortal Orchestra standout “Fffunny Friends,” and the visuals go well with the song’s fried-out, kaleidoscopic feel.

Watch a New Trailer for Trent Reznor-Scored Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

Featuring more music from Reznor and Atticus Ross.

As previously reported, Nine Inch Nails leader Trent Reznor and collaborator Atticus Ross, who won an Oscar for their score for David Fincher's The Social Network, came together again to create the soundtrack for Fincher's forthcoming film adaptation of the Stieg Larsson bestseller The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

Back in May, we saw the first trailer for the highly anticipated film, which featured a cover of Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" by Reznor and Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O. In August, more music from the film surfaced. Now, the film's Mouth Taped Shut blog points us to the film's second trailer, which features more of the Reznor and Ross-created score.

Long Trailer for Fincher's "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"

David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is one of the most highly anticipated films of the year, based on the incredibly popular first in the trilogy of novels by the late Stieg Larsson.

Because of the novels’ popularity, and the fact that there’s already been a Swedish adaptation of them, the film is one likely to be somewhat divisive among audiences, but I personally can’t wait to see it.

We got a first look at a trailer for the film back in June this year, and it was pretty fantastic. And now, courtesy of MSN we’ve got a brilliant extended trailer to share with you. Clocking in at 3:45 in length, it gives us a much longer and more detailed look at the film and what we can expect from it. And it’s definitely promising stuff.

I must confess that I’m still yet to read the novels or see the original film trilogy, but I’m a big fan of all of Fincher’s work, and I cannot wait to see what he brings us following the success of The Social Network. Daniel Craig, Rooney Mara, and Stellan Skarsgård all look fantastic in this, and Oscar-winning Steven Zaillian looks to have penned a brilliant script. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is released here on 26th December this year, a date that can’t come soon enough.

Brite Futures - Too Young To Kill

That go and Brite Futures’ “Too Young to Kill,” a music video sure to make you look more than twice. The number of scene/wardrobe/makeup changes would make any assistant director cringe!

There are certain moments where the video begins to feel repetitive, but that’s the trick that director Noel Paul used. Just as you begin feel a loop similar to three frames, he adds a twist at the end of each shot. The match cuts are a simple, nice touch that makes this music video interesting from beginning to end.


Washed Out – “Amor Fati”

Washed Out’s new video for the Within And Without track “Amor Fati” is a series of beautifully photographed images of what appears to be some guy’s solo European road trip, which, of course, is the best kind of European road trip. He also spends a whole lot of the video shirtless, if you’re into looking at this particular dude without a shirt on. Watch the video at Entertainment Weekly.

Apparat - Song Of Los

Girls – “Honey Bunny”

The crowd at the 9:30 Club in D.C. last night pretty much went nuts for the opening surf-guitar sputter of Girls’ souped-up single “Honey Bunny,” a pretty clear sign that they’ve got another “Lust For Life” on their hands here. So it’s great to see that the band has a dizzy, fun, romantic new video for “Honey Bunny,” directed by Girls’ own J.R. White alongside Ivan Shumaker.

The clip starts out with frontman Christopher Owens wearing a belly-shirt sweater, driving a goddam Corvette, and doing his best impression of Michael Jackson in the video for “The Way You Make Me Feel” while he attempts to get an incredibly pretty girl (played by Owens’ real-life girlfriend, Dominant Legs’ Hannah Hunt) into said ride. And for the rest of the video, they go driving, shoot off highway flares, fly kites, and do all sorts of stuff that will make you not especially happy to be sitting inside on a rainy Tuesday morning. It’s a great video and an indication that White may be as good at directing music videos as he is at producing music.

Wise Blood – “Nosferatu”

Theo Anthony directs this clip for Wise Blood’s dark pop track “Nosferatu,” and the result is a druggy, hypnotic video that features the protagonist lurking in a dreamlike state. Also, there’s a creepy-as-fuck old man mask wading through the mist. And once you pile in the referential aspects of Chris Laufman’s project — the nod to Flannery O’Conner’s gothic debut novel Wise Blood as well as the obvious evoking of all that vampire stuff — it makes the clip seem even eerier.

Battles Soundtrack FIFA Soccer 12 Commercial

The new commercial for the video game FIFA Soccer 12 perfectly chops up “Ice Cream,” the Matias Aguayo collab from Battles’ new album Gloss Drop, with footage of random people (including Steve Nash, Hope Solo, and Seth Meyers) playing the video game. It’s an extremely well-done commercial, even for those of us who don’t care much about soccer or video games. And anyway, the world needs more examples of electro-math-rock bands coming together with Canadian basketball stars.


Arctic Monkeys – “Suck It And See” (NSFW)

With a title like "Suck It and See", you could've guessed that the music video for the title track from Arctic Monkeys' recent LP might be a bit sexually explicit. The new clip, directed by Focus Creeps, stars drummer Matt Helders on an extreme "lost weekend", featuring dust, motorcycles, flags, and most prominently, a scantily clad lady. Watch below.

Hugh Laurie- The whale has swallowed me

Hugh Laurie Gets Bluesy in 'The Whale Has Swallowed Me'

You probably know him as TV's Dr. House, but Hugh Laurie has other extraordinary talents besides diagnosing mysterious illnesses and playing a legendary ass.

'Let Them Talk,' the British actor and musician's debut album, is a romp through New Orleans jazz-infused folk and Mississippi Delta blues -- a genre Laurie has treasured since a young age.

"My reverence for this music is bordering on the religious. It means a great deal to me. Just to give you an example of it, on the first day we were going to record, it suddenly hit me I needed to work out what I was going to wear," Laurie recently told Spinner. "I thought, I can't do this music in jeans and sneakers. It doesn't feel right. So I went in wearing a suit and tie."

This suited sincerity has since spilled over into Laurie's new video for 'The Whale Has Swallowed Me,' a languid jam through Delta frustrations and biblical thoughts.

The Joe Henry-produced 'Let Them Talk' is available now via Rhino Records.

Frank Ocean – “Swim Good”

Frank Ocean rocks a panda mask (same one as that Fader cover, I think) and ninja garb in this new clip for Nostalgia, Ultra banger “Swim Good,” and the video is certainly a little more straightforward than yesterday’s freaky shaman-filled affair. It involves Frank, yet again, pushing a whip — this time an orange stretch limo — down an open stretch of road. Nabil Elderkin, which is a dope Middle Earth name, directs.

The Killing Joke

A Short Film by Sebastian Lopez

The Killing Joke is a 15 minute suspense/fiction short film about a mysterious woman that finds a red balloon tied up to a curious little box on an eery derelict street. Using classic elements of suspense and working within a seventies aesthetic, 'The Killing Joke' is an action packed film that pays homage to some of the horror movies from that era.

Frank Ocean – “Thinking About You”

High 5 Collective‘s new video for “Thinking About You,” the recent Tumblr loosie from Odd Future R&B affiliate and world-conquering singer-songwriter Frank Ocean, is a weird one. The clip’s narrative is tough to follow, but it involves vengeful Native Americans and catatonically sick children. Ocean himself only shows up in cameo form, playing a male nurse.

The first glimpse of the long-awaited return of Max Payne - in action. Coming March 2012 to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Still haunted by the memories of his traumatic past, Max begins a new life working private security protecting a wealthy industrialist and his family in São Paulo, Brazil. When gangs target the family under his protection, Max is forced to fight to save his clients and clear his name, in a bid to, once and for all, rid himself of the demons that have tortured him for far too long.

There's a video now for Avey Tare's "Oliver Twist", from the Animal Collective member's solo LP, last year's Down There. In the Jack Kubizne-directed animated clip, a strange-looking man takes a raft down the river, stares deeply into birds' eyes, and gets eaten by crocodiles. Then, the crocodiles morph into different-looking crocodiles, turn into green ghosts, and ascent to some great light-lit carnival in the sky. So, yeah, just another day in the swamp.

Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter Directs Short Film

Thomas Bangalter, one half of Daft Punk, has directed and done cinematography for a three-minute short film that serves as a sort of advertisement for the new collection from the fashion line Co. The film stars Élodie Bouchez, Bangalter’s actress wife. She plays a woman taking care of a sick man, and lots of weird stuff happens. Also, she cries. The soundtrack is all operatic and not-at-all robot-rockish. But it has to be said: Everyone looks very nice!

The Big Pink – “Stay Gold”

The large-sounding Brit-rock duo the Big Pink made a pretty impressive debut with their album A Brief History Of Love back in 2009, and they haven’t done much since. But the group has now announced the January release of the sophomore effort Future This, and first single “Stay Gold” already has a video from director Ollie Murray. (Presumably, that title is one for all you Outsiders heads out there.) The video itself has models and graffiti and boringly psychedelic kaleidoscope graphics, and it’s nothing special. But the song itself is a big churn with the same sort of gigantic festival mashing chorus that animated previous Big Pink singles “Velvet” and “Dominos.”

Lloyd – “Dedication To My Ex (Miss That)”

Lloyd’s “Dedication To My Ex” is a ridiculously catchy retro-soul workout which, when it appeared on his King Of Hearts album, was also one of the more gleefully raunchy tracks in recent memory. It was also an all-star affair, with a weird narrator-type intro from Lil Wayne and an excellent André 3000 verse. A cleaned-up version of the song now has a fun video from director Bryan Barber, and Wayne and André aren’t in it. Instead, for reasons that I can only begin to contemplate, Wayne Brady lip-syncs Wayne’s part, and a talking cat, with the aid of some awesomely terrible CGI, lip-syncs the André part.

Active Child – “Playing House” (Feat. How To Dress Well)

Earlier in the summer, we posted “Playing House,” a sort of summit meeting of forlorn bedroom-indie falsetto addicts Active Child and How To Dress Well. That track now has a video, and whether it’s intended or not, the thing comes off as being very, very silly. It’s full of cheesed-out smoke effects and quivering tear-lined eyeballs and overblown lip-sync theatrics, and our friend Chris Weingarten has already rendered exactly the verdict you’d expect. Isaac Ravishankara directs.

We’ve seen Emmy backing her first album First Love and backing Fatboy Slim on the BPA Project, and now she’s back with this Lucy Needs-directed video for Emmy The Great’s end-of-a-relationship ode “Paper Forest (In the Afterglow of Rapture).” The video pairs the songwriter Emma-Lee Moss with a lively older woman coping with her own sadness in this austere clip.

Cut Copy - Blink And You'll Miss A Revolution

In the Emile Sornin-directed video for Cut Copy's "Blink and You'll Miss a Revolution", the latest single from the band's BNM'd LP Zonoscope, a few caveman-looking primates get their hands on the Aussie dance-rockers' disembodied body parts and make themselves a little Cut Copy performance out of it. Damn dirty apes!

Neon Indian - "Polish Girl"

Neon Indian "Polish Girl" by Tim Nackashi

Neon Indian’s album Era Extraña is out today, and now we’ve also got a video for the advance track “Polish Girl.” The clip looks almost exactly like a low-budget ’80s sci-fi movie, which means it’s very much in keeping with the whole Neon Indian aesthetic. It follows the story of a disconnected cyborg in love. Tim Nackashi directs, and it’s all part of the Creators Project.

Trash Talk - Awake

The Sacramento hardcore band Trash Talk puts on some of the most ridiculously fun and violent live shows I’ve had the privilege to see in the last few years. When they’re not prowling the stage like pumas and staring audience members down, they’re launching themselves through the air, usually directly at people. If you’re of a certain old-punk disposition, you’re probably very, very happy they exist. (You may remember the “Explode” video we posted last year, on account of it ruling and all.)

Trash Talk have a new EP called Awake coming out next month, and the brief tantrum of a title track already has a video. It opens with some nameless dude threatening to beat our ass, and it follows that up with footage of dudes doing various bad things on, and to, skateboards and bikes and wheelchairs and TVs. Sean Stout directs.

Big Troubles - Sad Girls

Brooklyn-by-way-of-Jersey outfit Big Troubles just put out this suburban malaise-soaked clip for “Sad Girls”. The band stars as Geek Squad parodies (Dork Squad) and seem to suck mightily at their jobs, unless it’s Geek Squad’s job to pour Miller Light inside your deconstructed computer monitor. Which, you know, might happen in a regular Geek Squad visit; I can’t speak from experience.

Explosions in the Sky - "Be Comfortable Creature"

Triumphal Austin instrumental churners Explosions In The Sky dropped their first-ever video back in June, and now they’re already back with their second. At this rate, they should catch up with the rest of the world in about a bazillion years.

This one comes from their director friend Paul Logan (probably not this guy, unfortunately), and it follows a sad bastard of a red furry alien as he gets lost on earth and then eventually tries to find ways to fit in. It’s 10 minutes long, and it’s an emotional journey.

Lana Del Rey - "Blue Jeans"

Lana Del Rey - "Blue Jeans" (dir. Lana Del Rey)

Lana Del Rey, the new glamorously bummed and vaguely sleazy L.A. orch-pop alter-ego of singer-songwriter Lizzy Grant, has already worked up a ton of buzz off of exactly one song: the pretty great “Video Games.” And now we’ve got another, the equally great “Video Games” B-side “Blue Jeans,” which already has its own video. Like “Video Games,” “Blue Jeans” is an exquisitely languid, fundamentally insincere love song that seems like the sort of thing Fiona Apple might be making if she were coming up today. If Del Rey has more songs like this on the way, she’s going places.

Autobus is a band from Lima, Perú, the band has found a very particular sound that has not been found very often in southamerican rock. Autobus combines different genres and sounds when composing their songs, their influences range from fully electronic groups such as Justice, Paassion Pit, to bands like Wilco, Spoon, Foals and more. With his short career on the stage, they have already played major events such as the backing band for The Killers concert in Peru, Franz Ferdinand, Soul Asylum, playing to audiences of up to 35,000 people.

They have also played in the Peru's largest fetivales shared the stage with bands like Molotov (Mexico) and Los Pericos (Argentina) and recently (Feb 2011) the band opened for Janes Adicction, an emblematic 90s band.

Now Autobus is a about to release their a new album called "Maquina Destruccion" with 10 topics that they plan to conquer new markets and to tour several U.S. cities and Europe.

Das Racist - Michael Jackson

Brooklyn rap trio Das Racist just released the visuals for their much talked about single Michael Jackson.

Local video clique Weird Days directs this lurid clip for Das Racist’s “Michael Jackson” that’s almost as reference-heavy as your average Das Racist song. The things touched on: the Last Supper, The Simpsons, the Chris Farley Chippendales SNL skit (Heems and Victor re-enact that one), and a “Black And White” style montage featuring the morphing faces of: rappers El-P and Despot; DR family member Lakutis; DR actual family member comedian Hari Kondabolu (Dap’s brother); DR producers Mike Finito, Anand Wilder, Rostam Batmanglij; Weird Days’ Ben Schecter; and probably tons of others that are just blowing me by this morning. It’s ridiculous.

Sheeped Away

Sheeped Away, a film by Junaid Chundrigar, tells the tale of a farmer who just wants to be with his beloved sheep. When a giant UFO enters his life to claim his sheep, what will he do to keep them safe from harm? And can he do this without waking his monstrous wife?

Sigur Ros - "Klippa"

Abeano points to this extraordinarily quiet, Sarah Hopper-directed clip from Sigur Rós. Judging by the watermark in the lower right-hand corner, it seems to somehow compliment the Icelandic crescendo-hounds' forthcoming concert film/live album Inni, though there's no live footage to be found here. Just some slow-dancing and fabric-cutting. That kind of thing.

Kid Cudi – “Mr. Rager”

In the video for his brooding anthem “Mr. Rager,” Kid Cudi battles a comically huge mob of weapon-wielding miscreants. The fighting itself is dimly lit and badly choreographed, the two surprise endings are both lame, and Cudi himself does not exactly make the world’s most believable badass street-fighter. Still, anything that brings to mind memories of this might well be worth seven minutes of your time. Surface To Air’s Jeremy Rozan directs.

Mastodon: Spectrelight

Berner – “Yoko” (Feat. Chris Brown, Wiz Khalifa & Big K.R.I.T.)

It seems pretty safe to say that we all hate Chris Brown around here, so maybe it’s lame to post anything associated with him in any way. But the man did make the rap song of the year, so we’re going to have to contend with him for a while, like it or not. Like plenty of other loathsome people in the past, Brown has been a part of some really good songs lately, and “Yoko” is one of those. Actually, the track was floating around for a while sans Brown before Breezy threw a verse on it and included it on his latest mixtape. Breezy’s verse is pretty whatever (he’s feeding eskimos?), but the song is really all about Big K.R.I.T.’s early-’00s-style quasi-Eastern beat and his slick singsong verse anyway. The song has a video now, and it’s good in a low-budget rap video sort of way. Lots of cars do donuts, and director Tha Razor has the good sense to film everything on grainy ’70s B-movie stock.


The New Pornographers - "Up In The Dark"

Above, you'll find the spacey animated video for "Up in the Dark" from the New Pornographers' 2010 album Together, directed by Jon Busby.

Fixers - Swimmhaus Johannesburg

Fixers - “Swimmhaus Johannesburg” (director: Lucy Bridger)


Michael Langan’s new short film Heliotropes is fresh off the film fest circuit. Heliotropes documents the parallel goals of man and nature, through the most primitive and sophisticated means, to simply stay in the light. Based on the poem by Brian Christian.

You might remember Langan’s previous film Doxology, which mixed stop-motion and live-action to create an experimental comedy about tennis balls, dancing cars and God.

Borge's Streets: Buenos Aires: Las Calles de Borges

"Poets, like the blind, can see in the dark."

Directed and shot by me with a Canon 5d. I edited and color graded it in Final Cut Pro using Twixtor, Knoll Light Factory and Magic Bullet.

Rinocerose - Music Kills Me

Experience a real Air Guitar contest in this video from their album "Music Kills Me"!!!

Wilco - “Born Alone”

“Born Alone,” a vaguely Spoon-sounding track from Wilco’s new album The Whole Love, has a video. It’s a montage of band-related imagery (guitar racks, studio knobs, faces), and it’s nothing too exciting. But still! A good song! Mark Greenberg directs.

Battles - "My Machines" [ft. Gary Numan]

Battles went and made a video for “My Machines,” the collab with electro-pop god Gary Numan that shows up on their Gloss Drop album. The clip, from the directing team DANIELS, tells the story about a guy falling slowly and dramatically down the up escalator at a mall, never able to get up or to reach the bottom. Battles and Numan rock out unconcernedly around him. Maybe it’s a sort of modern-age Sisyphean parable, and maybe it’s just a fucking great low-budget music video.


Kate Moss drums with The Vaccines then gets naked - video

A short film showing Kate Moss drumming along with The Vaccines before getting naked has gone online to promote Rimmel make up. Scroll down to watch the video.

The four-minute clip shows Moss entering Spring Studios in north London and going to a studio in which The Vaccines are playing their single 'If You Wanna'. The model then picks up a Union Jack guitar and, grinning, attempts to play along with the band before sitting in the drum stool and trying her hand at some percussion.

Leaving the studio, she strips off to just her knickers and high heels and then puts on a red dress and poses for a photo shoot in her own studio, before racing to the roof and leaving in a helicopter. As you do.

Kate Moss and her husband, Jamie Hince of The Kills, were both in attendance at Mark Ronson and Josephine de la Baume’s wedding in the south of France last weekend.

The couple tied the knot in Aix en Provence, and guests at the two-day ceremony also included Lily Allen.

Wild Flag – “Romance”

The punk rock supergroup Wild Flag now has a video for their single “Romance,” and it’s a fun one. WFMU host and NYC comedy scene linchpin Tom Scharpling directs, and all four members of the band get a chance to get their Portlandia on a little bit, playing office functionaries who go on awesomeness sprees on their lunch break.

The comedy bits in the video ably make the case that the women of Wild Flag would be a whole lot of fun to hang out with. The real draw, though, may be the live clips, which do a nice job of showing why you need to see this band when they come to your town. Scharpling has only directed four videos before this one, but all four of the clips on his resume are winners. Scharpling is also my colleague in this thing, so full disclosure and all that.

Scarlett Johansson & Lulu Gainsbourg - "Bonnie and Clyde"

Scarlett Johansson plays the role of Bridget Bardot in this remake of “Bonnie & Clyde,” where Lulu Gainsbourg sings his father Serge’s part in French. It’s from a forthcoming tribute record called From Gainsbourg To Lulu and the video features a lot of Scarlett Johansson lying in repose and crushing glasses of Moët. Which untouchable artist will Scarlett cover/work with next? Surely she’s got something to do with the new Pet Sounds box set.

Justice "Audio, Video, Disco" - Dir: So Me

Justice have a new video for the brand-new lusty dance-rock track “Audio, Video, Disco,” and it manages to make the process of crafting a lusty dance-rock track look like a mythic undertaking. The camera dizzily spins around the duo as they take their time putting together music, and puppies, doves, Christmas trees, and light-up keyboards are all involved.

Veronica Falls - Bad Feeling

Phillippa Bloomfield directs this clip for Veronica Falls’ uptempo “Bad Feeling,” where the band trots around a forest and gets all metaphorical by stomping on some flowers and throwing logs in lakes. There’s even a burning book in there! Bases are covered, from an imagery perspective.

When Saints Go Machine – “Kelly”

You’ve heard Denmark quartet When Saints Go Machine breakthrough “Kelly” and now comes the accompanying clip directed by Maj Rafferty. Like the song, the video is about young love. Between ballerinas! There’s sensual apple-eating! It’s mad romantic.

Tchaikovsky Animation Time-Lapse

Cameraman Joe Clarke took this mesmerizing time-lapse of how animator Barry JC Purves manipulates his Tchaikovsky puppet for Russian TV:

Whilst working on the film I shot this series of time-lapses with the help of students. Instead of just leaving the camera to click away at set intervals, we manually took a frame in synch with the frames Barry was taking as he animated, showing the puppet moving at his intended 25fps, almost!

Google Celebrates Freddie Mercury 65th Bday with Google Doodle

Google honors Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury on his what have been his 65th birthday with an animated Google Doodle. The YouTube video has Freddie navigating through a crazy world inspired by his own lyrics. In one scene that looks like a video game, Mercury bounces off clouds, flies on a tiger and shoots at aliens from a spaceship, all to his hit song “Don’t Stop Me Now.” The Google Blog features a guest post by Queen guitarist Brian May, “Happy Birthday, Freddie Mercury“.

The Freddie Mercury doodle was developed over three months at Google by a team led by Doodler Jennifer Hom.
