I posted this song a few weeks ago, the video is out now and it’s gorgeous. When the lace comes off her face, I actually gasped, Anna Fox Rochinski is such a stunner. The whole thing has such a beautiful, sun drenched feel, the lazy day in the park images blending seamlessly with the dreamy tune. This band continues to impress me and hit just the right spot. It helps that the picnic layout looked like it came out of a Free People catalog, who doesn’t love bohemian multi colors.
I had the fortune of seeing David Byrne and St. Vincent last week, and surprise, surprise, it was one of the best shows I’ve seen, just perfectly put together and such a celebration of life. So corny, but it’s true! Anyway, been on a bigger Byrne kick than usual lately, so I’m ecstatic that he and Jherek Bischoff released a video for a new song they worked on together for Bischoff’s debut solo album, and it’s just sublime. String sections making me feel like I’m on a Parisian honeymoon, close ups of Byrne’s eyes making me feel like I’m in a Stanley Kubrick film. Brilliant.
Flaming Lips released the video for “Turning Violent” today and there’s no naked Erykah Badu being covered in goo, just standard shots of a white room, the band, and Wayne in all his curly haired gloriousness with some of Gwen Stefani’s face jewels from 1997 on. You get glimpses of their new stage setup with frenetic spasms of rainbow lasers and lights shocking you into a world of technicolor as tinfoil receptors hang overhead. Oh, and glitter of course. It’s as minimal as a video with lasers and tinfoil can be.
