A Year on the Road: Once Upon a Blue Moon

You never know what you'll find on a dirt road, which is exactly why you should take the journey

About a month ago, I got that familiar nagging that often happens when I've been a couple of weeks in once place. On this particular afternoon, I dipped off Interstate 17 heading North to explore a string of ghost towns along a winding dirt road. Immediately off the exit, I dove onto a perfect, dusty highway straight into the sun. A little dot on the map, Cleator, Arizona is a town that has been......read more

Skating Ordos, China's Ghost City

watch
Filmmaker Charles Lanceplaine follows a group of skateboarders to an abandoned city in Inner Mongolia

Called the "Dubai of northern China," Ordos is an Inner Mongolian city that's rich in resources and filled with interesting public architecture. Oddly, however, barely anyone lives there. Designed to be the home of one-million inhabitants, today only a few thousand people live there, making Ordos a veritable modern-day ghost town -- and a perfect skateboarding destination. Filmmaker......read more

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.

Hypnotic video stars a gorgeous woman wandering though a neon-lit desert

Tycho, the one-man music project of San Francisco artist and producer Scott Hansen, recently dropped this sun-drenched video for "Ascension," off of his 2011 LP, Dive.

UK beatsmith shares beautifully shot new video

"Cold Win," the second single from Ghostpoet's sophomore album Some Say I So I Say Light, has a new video courtesy of director Cyrille De Vignemont. The French director outfits the somber, cinematic track with some mysterious visuals that find Ghostpoet (aka Obaro Ejimiwe) himself inside a car that appears to be underwater. Then, during the chorus, we are treated with sweeping landscape shots......read more

Young Galaxy, "Phantoms"

watch
Ghost-themed vid offers up some seasonally appropriate spookiness

Just in time for Halloween, Montreal band Young Galaxy release this new vid for "Phantoms" off their latest LP, Shapeshifting. The clip fregoes the animated approach in favor of a live action tale involving two ghosts (of the bedsheet variety) haunting a forest and generally acting goth'y. Hazy lighting and spectral cinematography give this one a strange and spooky vibe. ...read more
