The Balance

Hypnotic CGI video envisions audio waves in space.

What if we could see sound? What would it look like? If this mesmerizing CGI video from motion design maestro Rimantas Lukavicius is any indication, then it looks like an outer space acid trip. A fascinating and hallucinatory short film from the talented Lithuanian animator. ...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

One for the vinyl heads.

A collaboration between director/animator Chopsy and Bristol beat maestro Architeq (Tirk Recordings), "Into the Cosmos" tells the story of old LPs that are mysteriously summoned to a warehouse from their forgotten homes in attics, shelves and garbage bins.

The video combines the Italian band's heartmelting chamber pop with vintage visuals of kids frolicking in the South Pacific. The idyllic imagery, taken......read more

Band of greenies go on a desert pilgrimage.

The video for "40 Day Dream" is the third instalment in SALVO!, the 12-part video opera that Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros are creating to go along with their hit album Up From Below.

Gold Panda, "Marriage"

watch
Feel good visual vibes by Ronni Shendar.

British beat wiz Gold Panda checks in with a new video for "Marriage" featuring not much more than some friendly looking folks holding lanterns.

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

High Places, "Altos Lugares"

watch
Eerie self-directed video from LA's hazy new wave duo

LA art-pop duo High Places just dropped this new video for their propulsive "Altos Lugares" ("High Places" in Spanish, clever!) off their forthcoming LP. The self-directed bit features bandmembers Rob Barber and Mary Pearson traipsing in ghostlike form around Spahn Ranch, where Charles Manson and Family once lived. High places indeed.  Original Colors is out October 11th......read more
