Synth duo “Math The Band” is high energy rock

At first Math The Band was just a Westford, Massachusetts kid named Kevin Steinhauser screwing around on his computer making funny songs on a program called Fruity Loops or FL Studio. I only discovered him because at the same time I was doing the same thing in a joke band called Laptop Revolution. The amazingContinue reading “Synth duo “Math The Band” is high energy rock”

MS MR drops new video for “Fantasy” off their upcoming album Second Hand Rapture

Brooklyn based band MS MR (Ms.Vocals Lizzy Plapinger/Mr.Music Max Hershenow) has been one of those bands I’ve had my eye on since they dropped their hypnotic tune and equally hypnotic video “Hurricane” of their Candy Bar Creep Show EP back in July of 2012.

Check out the funky enough images of Helmet Girls illustrated by Camilla d’Errico

I guess, the only next step to drawing manga chicks is putting crazy head gear on them, and boy, do they seem to love it.

Gallagher in slow motion…I almost shed a tear.

In what can easily be described as one of the best Vimeo uploads I have ever seen, this video of comedian Gallagher blew my mind for two reasons, the music of Caribou and Gallagher swinging a large flaming mallot! The project was done by multi media team Fiction who worked with the camera company Miro┬átoContinue reading “Gallagher in slow motion…I almost shed a tear.”

New James Brown video for “It’s a man’s world” is a visual triumph.

Three years ago I was walking down 42nd st in New York and saw The Godfather of Soul leaving B.B. Kings just after a performance. I just stood and watched as folks snapped away with their digital cameras and phones. I just stood and watched as James Brown got into his car with some ladyContinue reading “New James Brown video for “It’s a man’s world” is a visual triumph.”

Grimes channels her inner harajuku for “Genesis” video

In keeping with her weird Drama Club chick persona, Canadian electronica artist Grimes has added another slightly random video to her list of random videos. This ones for her latest single “Genesis” and it’s definitely going the way of the raving Japanese cosplayers. She’s still delivering the youthful tunes we’ve come to love from theContinue reading “Grimes channels her inner harajuku for “Genesis” video”
