Video digest July 2012

Hey all! I’m back from a much needed (and way too short) vacation with a whole bunch of great music videos. Oh yeah. Turns out that different search attempts and methods produce different results, so after a little bit of trying (and trying and trying) I ended up with ten (!) excellent audio-visual pieces that...

Video digest June 2012

Here I am, embarrassingly late with my monthly video digest. Not my fault this time though – I’ve had an internet-less week (courtesy of the almighty AT&T which with all the money and resources they surely possess couldn’t restore my internet service due to communication system laughably poor for a communications company). It’s over now...

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”...
