Mind Over Mirrors – Strange(r) Work Music Video (w/ Musician & Director Timothy Breen Interview)

Like leaves in the wind, a repetitive keyboard line flutters about on “Strange(r) Work”, as if to usher in the fall season. Though plenty beautiful in aural form, the evocative nature of Mind Over Mirrors — a project by Chicago musician Jaime Fennelly, who is now joined by Haley Fohr of Circuit des Yeux —...Read...

Julio Bashmore ft. Jessie Ware – “Peppermint” Music Video (Interview w/ Director Noah Harris)

For “Peppermint”, Julio Bashmore’s collaboration with Jessie Ware, director Noah Harris offers viewers an abstract glimpse into his rave experiences and headspaces from the ’90s.

The Octopus Project – Whitby Music Video (MV of the Week + Band Interview)

The Octopus Project have always been lofty with their artistic vision, as we learned when they first told us about their 8-projector, surround-sound performances.

Grizzly Bear – “gun-shy” Music Video

Last year, the NSFW video for Kirin J. Callinan’s “Way To War (WIIW)” caught my attention with its punk rock Lars Von Trier visual choices. Just recently, the same director, Kris Moyes, released a music video for Grizzly Bear’s “gun-shy” — crystallizing what I would say is the best track from the band’s latest offering,...Read...
