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.
This is from Madder Mortem’s forthcoming release ‘Where Dream & Day Collide’, coming May 10th, 2010. There is some amazing 3D animation going on here not to mention some artfully crafted matte painting.

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 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.

12/16 HITCHENS DIES Outspoken author and pundit Christopher Hitchens passed away yesterday at the age of 62 after succombing to a long battle with cancer. His honest and bravado opinion that rarely favored one side versus the other but was instead often a cry for ‘reason’ will be missed.
