Sufjan Stevens, "All For Myself"

watch
Stop motion video directed by Matt and Julie Walker.

For us, Sufjan Stevens' sensitive indie-pop conjures images of dudes in tight brown cords and chunky black glasses sipping kombucha and burning incense. Thankfully, Matt and Julie Walker (aka Tiger in a Jar)'s visual interpretation of his music is far more creative. The duo's stop-motion video for "All For Myself," off Sufjan's latest LP Adz of the World, involves a Tyrannosaurus lumberjack who......read more

The Strokes, "I'll Try Anything Once"

Marble Sounds, "Sky High"

watch
Animation par excellence.

The best animated videos always hit on three key notes: good music, good animation, and good character design. The vid for "Sky High," from indie pop group Marble Sounds, has 'em all and then some. Created by compatriot Belgian creatives Eugene and Louise (who did the character design) and Birg,  the song and animation provide a warm antidote to a cold winter's day. ...read more

SHFT Sampler 1-28-11

Giant pink snails, epic Hasselblad photos, 12 dumb ugly jerks blocking climate change progress, and more.

Attack of the Giant Pink Snails: No, not an invasive exotic species, but a killer public art project in Florida, featuring oversized pink snails made of recycled plastic.  Purty birdies: Every night at dusk, a cloud of starlings do the tango in the skies above Sterte, England. Mark Sigler caught them in the act in this lovely one minute video.  The Big......read more

Ah shoot, more evidence that Mark Ronson is actually THE dude. The video for "The Bike Song," off his excellent new album with The Business Intl, follows a story about bike gang spies set in swinging '60s London. The tune itself is a big, fun glorification of two-wheeled transport, featuring Spank Rock on pro-environment raps: "I can't understand it, but I can't really stand 'em, girls love cars,......read more

Fictionist, "Blue Eyed Universe"

watch
Another out of this world Eric Power animation.

Eric Power's output of amazing, lo-fi animated videos runs so deep it would take us months to post every one. We might anyway. In this one, Utah indie rockers Fictionist gave Power free reign to do whatever he wanted with their song "Blue Eyed Universe." With full creative control (not to mention skills and imagination for days), the Austin, TX-based animation guru ventured deep into outer space......read more

Star Slinger, "Mornin'"

watch
Surreal summer vibes for a cold winter's day.

Short of traveling somewhere tropical, you're not going to find a better dose of winter escapism than this Alan Jensen-directed video for Star Slinger's "Mornin'". Jensen's sunny, kaleidoscopic interpretation of the UK beatmaker's soulful sound has us wishing we owned a pair of 3D glasses. It's a Vimeo staff pick, a first for Jensen, who has made equally dreamlike visuals for the likes of Toro y......read more

Gold Panda, "Marriage"

watch
Feel good visual vibes by Ronni Shendar.

Stream GP's just-released Marriage EP on Soundcloud....read more

Chiemgau Impressions

watch
Nice moody timelapse from German photographer Mario Feil.

While backing up his computer, German photographer/filmmaker Mario Feil stumbled upon some old footage he had planned to use as stock. Lucky for our eyeballs, Feil decided the shots deserved a treatment of their own. Pieced together from footage shot in the Chiemgau region of southern Bavaria (where Germany and Austria meet), it's a beautifully moody bit of video, helped generously by the......read more

The Decemberists, "Down by the Water"

watch
Animated Polaroids capture indie heavyweights at work and play.

For their new album The King is Dead, the Decemberists hooked up with famed music photographer Autumn de Wilde to produce a special limited edition box set featuring Polaroid photos of the band during the recording. The film was donated by the instant film saviors at Impossible Project, who handed de Wilde 2,500 exposures of now-extinct Polaroid film, then showed the results at an exhibition in......read more
