Yuna live @ Flavorpill HQ in NYC

Haven’t done this in a while and isn’t this the best occasion to return to posting live performances – Yuna doing a live set + interview at Flavorpill HQ in SoHo. Isn’t she freakin’ adorable? I somehow missed her show here in Chicago (she’ll be back for Lollapalooza, but I don’t really do outdoor events),...

Video digest May 2012

And again, May was different, – this time the best videos fell into my lap (or inbox) and the rest… are the rest. An uneven selection but (let me drop some retail lingo on you) the blended margin is pretty decent, I think. The first video was technically released on the first of this month,...

Video digest April 2012

What a great month! It’s interesting how the process of looking for videos has been different each time – sometimes I have to comb through Vimeo selection myself, and sometimes, like it happened last month, videos just kept falling right into my lap. I don’t even know where to start, so I’m just going to...

Video digest March 2012

In the words of my favorite con-man of Russian literature, “life dictates us its stern laws”. As much as I’d like to write posts daily, I’m having a really hard time balancing a (delightful but exhausting) full-time job of being a dad, an (annoying and exhausting) “real” full-time job and this little hobby of mine....

Video digest February 2012

Damn, February is a short month indeed! Still, I ended up with a bunch of good videos, better yet – very good songs those videos were created for. Let’s enjoy both, shall we! First (and most exciting) – new track/video from Yppah featuring no other but our beloved electronica goddess Anomie Belle. The new album...

Video digest January 2012

It’s time for the first Video Digest of the year! Are you excited? Well, I can’t say that the month was super fruitful for music videos, but I still found a few pieces that seemed interesting enough. And some of the videos found me, like this first one – a brand new music video from...

Video digest December 2011

You don’t need much to make a good music video. A few very good examples from the last month of 2011 below. Thievery Corporation didn’t need anything other than their rebel-with-a-cause attitude, always ready for action MC Mr. Lif and the peaceful revolution of the Occupy movement. Funky tune, colorful video, powerful message. Directed by...

Video digest September – November 2011

You wanted some videos? You got ’em! Well, I don’t know what you wanted since no one bothers to comment on anything (ever), but I sure wanted some, so, here you go, tipkin, do I have some treats for you tonight! Let’s start with something that is so beautiful that it’s going to leave you...

Thievery Corporation Live Session on KCRW, Los Angeles

Check out Thievery Corporation‘s Rob Garza accompanied by what the host Jason Bentley called “a gypsy carnival” of musicians and vocalists performing tracks from the new album Culture Of Fear as well as a couple of old fan favorites. Setlist: Web Of Deception Lebanese Blonde Take My Soul [interview] Amerimacka Culture Of Fear Vampires Overstand...

More new videos!

This delicious portion of music+video (music always comes first!) goodness is a bit more personal. Most of the videos below are from artists/bands that I talked about/with on the pages of trippin’ the rift and that I keep following with great interest and pleasure. Let’s start with the trippiest of all “this is not trip-hop”...

Gods, millionaires and pure abstraction

I like posting music videos – it doesn’t require a whole lot of writing, it attracts a lot of readers and it’s always interesting to sort of match the music and the visualizations, to see if the video complements the track or is it more like a mini-film that uses the song as soundtrack (not...

coldreavers – Morning In The Cafe (video)

And here it is, Ladies and Gentlemen – TTRR‘s very first and very original music video. All kinds of appreciations go to Mudgeonsoul Productions and personally to Richard Paro (whose short film Fox In The Snow just won the Out There Now Short Film Competition at Kansas City Gay & Lesbian Film + Video Festival....
