My girlfriend, after listening: "It was worth meeting you just so I could hear that."

Tally Hall is the best new band I've heard in years, hands-down. They're an American rock band best known for the excellent Good Day video and the cult Albino Blacksheep hit Banana Man. They've released two albums, each masterpieces; the first one is exuberant and youthful and, sometimes, utterly cryptic, while the second is stripped down but astonishingly contemplative and even spiritual, easily one of the best-written pop albums I've ever heard. If you're in the mood for something smart and warm and wonderful, there're... [more inside]

Live Fast, Die Young

M.I.A. has released a new single called Bad Girls. The music video, another collaboration with Romain Gavras (previously on Metafilter), features a Middle Eastern style of drifting called hagwalah and a see-through glow-in-the-dark car inspired by Prabhu Deva dancing on a see-through bus in the Tamil film Kadhalan. Some believe M.I.A. is making a statement against the Saudi Arabian law banning women from driving, others see it as a relatively positive view of today's Middle East, and still others fear M.I.A. is misappropriating stereotypes for the sake of creating controversy. But maybe you'd just like some more lighthearted information on the making of the video. M.I.A. herself delivers. (More M.I.A. on Metafilter: 2005, 2007, 2008, 2010, most recently)

The Big Organ and Other Nightmares

The cautionary tale of the shiny new device that's smarter than its users and ends up taking over is pretty much cliché... but it took Australian pop musicker Gotye (prounced like Gaultier, if that helps) to apply it to a Lowrey Organ (the Cotillion D575, a vintage model he acquired for $100 and uses both in his recordings and concerts). Add retro-style animation, and you have something scary yet whimsical and truly "State of the Art". [more inside]

Jonit: have the beat tell the story

Here's a little musical journey. Let's start with Sherlock's Daughter, a dream-pop group of Brooklyn-based Aussies. From this, extract the keyboardist and electronics wizard Jonti Danilewitz, creating: D'Animals, then simplified as Danimals. It started as a solo outing, but turned into a group, who produced an odd single (which spun off an animated music video under the name Djanimals). The group also won the chance to work with Mark Ronson and a bunch of well-known musicians, producing a single with a video. Spin out a bit further, and Jonti is on his own (again), releasing a mixtape "album" from his private collection, and most recently signing with Stones Throw Records, where he has finally released his solo debut album (streaming online). Bonus tangents inside. [more inside]

"in the street, in a store, in a kitchen or bedroom"

Starting in the summer of 2009, Southern Souls began by capturing unique performances by musicians that call southern Ontario home. Seeing musicians play in the places that they live and breathe, places they themselves have chosen—in the street, in a store, in a kitchen or bedroom—is almost a homecoming for the music itself, returning it to the places in which it started.

What we do is what we do. The brand new DEVO video takes the crowd-sourcing/focus-grouping element of their album Something For Everybody to the music video world. It's a 360-degree video where the user can control the camera. (For the lazy among us, there's also a "random" button that moves from shot to shot.) The link also includes a brief interview with DEVO co-founder/video co-director Gerald V. Casale.

REM: This is not a pop video, it's something very different

Collapse Into Now Film Project is a set of 12 short videos to accompany the songs on R.E.M.s latest album. “I chose to do the film project as an attempt to redefine what an ‘album’ can be in the 21st century,” [Stipe] said. “And I matched all of the songs to artists I thought could best translate each into a film or visual piece.”
Half the films are available on Youtube:
It Happened Today
Oh My Heart
Mine Smell Like Honey (contains Stipe being manhandled)
Uberlin (contains Kick-Ass star dancing)
Alligator Aviator Autopilot Antimatter (features Peaches)
Walk It Back (contains horse penis) [more inside]

Sunday Comes Afterwords

Rebecca Black's Friday is a video single from an artist you may have never heard of, yet it's spawned animated gifs and in-depth lyrical analysis, raised speculation over possible album tracklists, garnered numerous covers, it's received the super-slow treatment (similar to Justin Bieber), and a short movie mash-up. Where did this all start? A magical place called Ark Music Factory.

My name is Thom. I like to dance. Watch me dance.

Four weeks ago, the video for Radiohead's Lotus Flower went up on YouTube. It's a simple thing, black and white, starting off with a silhouetted dancer who turns out to be Thom Yorke. The formerly "very shy and uncertain" fellow has since turned into a back-up dancer for Beyonce, makes Window Licker a bit less creepy*, and is a dancing queen. There's a step-by-step graphic break-down of Thom's dance (descriptions in French, auto-translated by Babelfish and alternate descriotion in English), a detailed break-down of Yorke's influences, a tumblr of 150 dancing Thom video edits and mash-ups, and a Know Your Meme page.

Must Be Santa, over the years (now with more Dylan)

Must Be Santa was originally recorded (song on YT) in 1969 by Mitch Miller, with simple call-and-response lyrics that were a hit (song on YT) for Lorne Greene in 1966. The catchy song is amusing for small children, and cute when sung by groups of kids. With minor lyrical tweaks and a rowdy polka style (live clip), Brave Combo liven up the Christmas classic. Leave it to Bob Dylan to take it further. [more inside]
