Someone in the comments section on Vimeo page for this used the adjective ‘intriguing’. I am going to just go ahead and go with that one. So double the intrigue.

It might date back a few months but it is still fun to watch Fluorescent Hill get crazy for the single “Spacious Thoughts” N.A.S.A. featuring the musical talents of Kool Keith and Tom Waits.

A friend/coworker of mine slipped me a copy of Midnight Juggernauts last album and I have been a fan ever since. They have just released this video for the single ‘Vital Signs’ from their forthcoming album ‘The Crystal Axis’ due out on May 28th. They decided to take the psychedelic route in this recent video directed by Krozm.

Daniel Warwick directed this video for Fettes Brot which kind of reminds me of something you would have seen in the 80′s for Devo. Minus the amazing vivid color, art direction and super stylized sets of course. The whole video is pretty strange and I am not entire sure what the aim was but it is definitely entertaining.

The Flaming Lips “I Can Be A Frog”

This is the latest video from the Flaming Lips. It features a nice looking young lady in a bikini doing animal impersonations. Everyone loves animals and bikinis. Personally, I have always loved The Flaming Lips.

The effects in this video are very choice. I must admit to not being much of a fan for the song but the video merits a watch just for the VFX alone.

The Big Pink is a really interesting mash-up of musical styles. You can hear influences from all over the place in their music. If you can get through the ‘droning’ at the  beginning of the song you will be richly rewarded by the vocals. The video is expertly shot and art directed as well.

Jonas and Francois are a French (Paris-based) directing duo that are responsible for some of the more memorable music videos in the last couple years. Their roster of music video clientele includes Ed Banger Records, Kanye West, JUSTICE (the video above for D.A.N.C.E. is brilliant) and Kavinsky, among others. Several of their videos have spread like wildfire across the web in the last few months.

You can find out a little more about them at their MySpace page and if you are looking for a music video or commercial with a French creative twist they are currently repped by Caviar Content.
