Andrew Bird – Sweep the Field

Do the right thing and listen to this. Amazing sound scape weaving together Bird’s echo refrains and the subtle sounds of traveling water. From the album Echolocations.

Melody’s Echo Chamber – I Follow You



Jangly, trippy beach pop sounds from Madrid’s Hinds. Their new single Chili Town and some other stuff. Nice.

BOX by Bot & Dolly

Box from Bot & Dolly on Vimeo.

A repost from the 2013 archives. Just because it blows your mind.

If you want to watch something truly incredible, then watch this. The main thing to know and keep in mind whilst watching, is that this has been captured completely in realtime by a camera. So no post production effects. If you were in this room, this what you would see. This is illusion taken to the extreme using 3D projection mapping and choreographed robotic moving surfaces.

Watch full screen.

“The piece was essentially grounded on the principles of Stage Magic, invoking five of the basic categorizations of Illusionary.. These Categories greatly informed the conceptual and aesthetic foundation and were fused with a graphic design aesthetic heavy in Minimalistic Form and Illuminated Geometry.. This direction was then placed into a projection-based Physical Installation, where all the ‘magic’ was captured live and in-camera, filmed documentary-style with no post effects or treatment; in essence the immense technology behind the curtain being completely masked from the viewer by the methods used to capture the performance.. This quote by Science-Fiction writer and Inventor Arthur C Clarke perfectly summarizes the film’s foundation:

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
-Arthur C. Clarke

Music Videos Full Circle

Jaws – Be Slowly from Gobinder Jhitta on Vimeo.

Just because there should probably be some Jaws and Sloan on the blog somewhere. Grungy music videos have come full circle. Again…

Panda Bear – Crosswords (Pete Rock Remix)


Liking muchly this unexpected remix of Panda Bear’s Crosswords. His Beachboys style harmonies with that old school back beat. Play loud.

Beirut – No No No


New good stuff from Beirut. New album out September. A little more stripped down and less abstract. Listen to it. It’s good for you…

The Babies – Got Old


Kind of a Super-band from Brooklyn that includes Cassie Ramone from Vivian Girls and Kevin Morby of Woods. Nice.
