I spaced a bit on the new Beck-produced solo album by Thurston Moore, but this video snapped it back into focus. Being largely unfamiliar with Thurston’s solo stuff, I was pretty surprised at the delicate production on the song. Really enjoying this one.
If this video was for anyone else, I wouldn’t trust it. It’s almost too calm, too relaxing. And after all, the internet has trained me to always have my guard up whether I’m looking for a ghost in a car commercial or trying to move my cursor through an online maze. But no. This is just some grade A relaxation right here. Unwind and enjoy.
Two days ago I liked Fishboy’s Classic Creeps. Then I saw the video and it rose a bit in my esteem. The big breaking point was when I finally visited ClassicCreeps.com and read the whole album explained in comic form. Now I love Classic Creeps. Eric is a wildly talented dude and it shows in his songs and his comics.
Here’s the deeply imaginative video for STRFKR’s song “Julius.” The kids’ story is basically a summation of my childhood… except without the other two kids. Basically it was just me playing alone in the woods, really.
Vandaveer is making a triumphant return to Lexington this weekend with his show at Natasha’s. His new record is a fantastic display of song craftsmanship and fantastic vocals. Here’s the best part: he’s even better live. If you want to go for free, here’s your chance.

This is the video that “Ice Cream” deserves. It’s as insane, hypnotizing and beautiful as the song that it accompanies. Watch this one with your full attention and see what all you can catch.
If I’m being honest, this is the first of the most recent Lonely Island songs that I’ve enjoyed. Maybe it’s the goofy as hell video, but whatever it is I really enjoyed the insanity.
Oh, and I should probably link to this video as it seems more inappropriately appropriate.
