Hermanos Inglesos (ft. MeMe) "Wanderland"

watch
Animated goodness from Belgium's Kristof Luyckx.

Here's the latest video for Belgian twosome Hermanos Inglesos, for their new single "Wanderland." The fun and fantastical animation was created by the band's compadres Kristof Luyckx and Michele Vanparys. Tight and trippy and there's a nod to nature that made it SHFTy enough for us to put up. The cat shitting pool balls is a high spot. Basically, we just like it....read more

In this animated interpretaton of a Neruda poem, a ballerina comes to life, one layer at a time

This beautiful short film from 18bis, a Brazilian motion graphics studio, makes use of a little-known animation technique called stratastencil. The basic concept, from what we can gather, is to add layers of cut paper to create the scene. The film itself is a freestyle interpretation of the Pablo Neruda poem "The Me Bird." From the creators: The inspiration in the strata stencil technique......read more

Nature beckons in new clip from director Lawrence Martinez

Last month, we posted the beautiful, bucolic video for "Tuck the Darkness In" from North Carolina's Bowerbirds. The second video for the folk band's excellent LP, The Clearing, emits a similarly pastoral vibe, with stunning clips of nature that perfectly capture Bowerbirds' organic appeal.

Cute, breezy short about a bird trying to find its voice

Age-old DIY printmaking meets animation in this charming short by Siri Melchior of Trunk studio, who made and scanned thousands of potato prints to use as textures for the animation. In the film, a little bird flies around his colofrul town, meeting a variety of animals and people. The problem? He can't whistle. Everywhere he goes, everyone can whistle properly except for him. But fear not! He......read more

Bowerbirds' uniquely pastoral folk sound gets an appropriately-themed video in this clip for new single "Tuck the Darkness In." Directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada, the video finds a doe-eyed boy considering the lives of fish after he catches a couple and feels terrible about it. He goes on to observe the sea creatures in a variety of habitats, mournfully coming to terms with what he did. It's......read more

Metronomy, "The Look"

Stop motion birds in bumper cars? Sure, why not

We're late on this one but we're pulling IT from the ashes of internet history (aka five months ago) because, well, it's good. Director Lorenzo Fonda cobbled together this bit of stop-motion fun for the super-sexy electro pop single off Metronomy's album The English Riviera, released last April. It features an aesthetically-pleasing look at the band playing in single file in front of a......read more

Blackbird Blackbird "Blind"

watch
Blissed-out song gets purty visual treatment from Alan Jensen.

Is "chillwave" actually a thing? We hope not. But on the other hand, we're not mad at the hazy, daydreamy vibes that the awfully-named genre is marked by. If there is such a thing, then "Blind" by San Francisco's Blackbird Blackbird (formerly known as Bye Bye Blackbird), is in it. This lovely visual treatment, from Albuquerque filmmaker Alan Jensen, (who has also......read more
