Midnight City

This music video was put together by some of our favorite creatives: Fleur & Manu (No Brain) provided the decidedly Spielberg-ian direction, DIVISION Paris (No Brain, On’n'on) handled production and Machine Molle (The Greeks, Sur Le Quai, Goin’in) delivered the visual effects.

I’m a big fan of M83‘s lush, layered, shoegaze-but-synth-heavy sound and the dream-team listed above delivers some enigmatic, atmospheric visuals that serve as a pitch-perfect accompaniment.

Truth be told, we first saw this back in October when one of our regular contributors, Sam Lillard, dropped it in our inbox. We liked it then, too! So much so that we filed it in our ‘_POST NOW BRAH_’ folder which, in light of today’s latent response time, should probably be renamed. Anyways, we decided to finally get this up on the site when we saw that its sequel, Reunion, was recently released. It’s just as great as the attached so, when you’re done here, definitely give it a watch next. Enjoy!

P.S. Keep your eyes peeled for No Brain‘s brief cameo at 0:27.

Oh shit, son!

OK, first off: NSFW WARNING! Boobies ahoy! And secondly: NEW JUSTICE!

The ON’N'ON EP is set to drop at the end of the month (pre-order here) and the fine purveyors of dope at Ed Banger Records were cool enough to fund this fantastic music video to promote the release. It’s directed by the super-talented Alex Courtes whom, you might recall, was one-half of Alex & Martin, the duo that won the best Short Form Music Video Grammy in 2005 for their fine work on Vertigo. Though they’ve since parted ways, I am happy to report that it hasn’t negatively affected Alex’s instinctual knack for creating radness. Oh, and DIVISION was hired to assist on production and they brought the same A-game talent that made No Brain shine.

I’m rather partial to journeys down the wormhole and this one is a non-stop-center-zoom ride from start-to-finish. It’s gorgeous; the perfect accompaniment to your Friday night sesh. Strap-in, crank the volume and get them HD bits loading full-screen, dawg. Enjoy!

A huge, massive thanks to Brent Burtoft for sending this one our way. We are in your debt, sir – cheers!

No Brain

I came across this little gem last night when I was browsing around the Vimeo Staff pics (one of the mountain-born tributaries that regularly flow down into rivière de La Tripatorium™) and knew it had to be posted soon as possible. Soon after, I checked the submissions and found out that one of our readers, Dan Allen, had send it in that very same day. KISMET!

On the Mueller scale of trippiness – as I’m sure you recall from your third grade earth-science lessons – ‘No Brain’ rates at a respectable 9.2835/10 which puts it in league with such favorites as The Music Scene, Combination Spawns and The Parachute Ending. In other words: shit is dope.

You know the drill: volume up, lights dimmed, headphones on and full-screen. Oh! Right! The credits! Direction by Fleur & Manu, production DIVISION Paris and post production by MATHEMATIC. Enjoy!
