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

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

Dead Man's Bones "Dead Hearts"

watch
Tense, haunting song provides perfect soundtrack to eerie animated video.

The video for lead single off Dead Man's Bones debut album, released in fall 2009, is a mesmerizing piece of work.

Ars Natura: Climate Swan Song

read
Karl Burkart finds the climate change symbolism in a grotesque installation by young Estonian artist.

As many of you know I am a favored target for the climate denier community, and sometimes their jabs and death threats do bother me. But most of the time I just feel sorry for them. After all they are singing their own swan song – all of ours actually. The more we delay on real energy regulation and the more the climate conspiracy community perpetuates the obfuscation of scientific......read more
