“Seduce The Milky Way”

Do you like uplifting monologues over drum beats and synths, intercut with shots of urban environments from different angles that follow a pedestrian? Then you might enjoy the video for Hieroglyphic Being and J.I.T.U Ahn-Sahm-Buhl’s “Fuck The Ghetto / Think About Outer Space”.
Hieroglyphic Being’s own story of overcoming homelessness in Chicago to become a successful experimental DJ was covered in a short documentary for Resident Advisor’s ORIGINS film series.

Everyone knows that “Wuthering Heights”, Kate Bush’s debut single of 1978, was inspired by Emily Brontë’s gothic tale of unfulfilled passion and madness on the moors. But how many people know how one boy’s relationship with his father, a disciple of Freud who fled Nazi-occupied Austria to pursue his studies on the orgasm in America, came to inspire another, similarly cherished piece of pop-culture history? The story behind Kate Bush’s Cloudbusting video from Dazed [Article is SFW, Dazed website is NSFW]

Who you gonna call? The story behind the Ghostbusters music video

Screen Crush has the inside story on the making of Ghostbusters theme song video (alt source: Daily Motion). [more inside]

Imitation of Life - R.E.M. Deconstructed, reconstructed and stabilised

The music video for Imitation of Life by R.E.M. is a 20-odd second locked off shot, which they repeat forwards and backwards for the duration of the song. I wanted to see if they showed the whole wide 20 second shot throughout the music video. They don't. So I filled the gaps as best I could. I also then scaled and moved the whole video in order to watch how the video plays out. [The original video.]

2 videos from 1 band making electronic music with sampled choral vocals

Do you like electronic music, sacred music, twitchy dancing, bouncing balls, and repeated images? Then you might like the music video for "Three Songs", by Lakker (Directed by Eileen Carpio.)
Do you prefer your electronic music with a lot more distortion and wub, and your videos to have close-ups of heads? Then you might like the video for "Mountain Divide" a bit more.

Internet Music Video Database (IMVDb)

Despite the mass appeal of music videos and the awesome amount of talent it takes to create them, IMDb has never cataloged these works like they do other short films. Now along to fill this niche is the Internet Music Video Database (IMVDb), a similar website for seeking and contributing information about music videos. Highlights include new releases, popular videos, upcoming videos, crew commentary tracks, and awards info. The website also has a podcast, a twitter, and a blog, where the editors have recently discussed the most popular music videos of 2014, listed their own year end favorites, and explained why the 2010s are a new Golden Age of music videos.

Radio Soulwax: The Final Mix and its Twenty-Three Predecessors

Seven months ago Steven and David Dewaele, better known as Belgian electronic duo and mashup kings Soulwax / 2manyDJs, put the finishing touches on their "Radio Soulwax" Project.

For this last hurrah, the Dewaeles released a video for the complete 2002 album that made them famous, As Heard On Radio Soulwax, Part Two.
