    the video still isn’t as effective as the one for Whats a Girl To Do (I guess all Bat For Lashes videos will be compared to it) but I still like this video – possibly because I kinda have a thing for Natasha Kahn and I’ll take what I can get.

    oh and watch it over on youtube the HD version is HUGE

      I agree, I think she’s amazing – her performance at her concert in London was gorgeous, but this video doesn’t quite work does it? I think it’s mostly the way its shot, and the lenses chosen etc..

        i cant critique the lenses and things like that but i think there is just a lack of concept/story

        i don’t think you need a good camera/lenses for a good video. It might change a so-so movie to good, and a good movie to great. i don’t know, either way i would still kill for anything better than my 5 year old handycam.

    i have a thing with her too. wanna fight?

    natasha khan = amazing
    song + natasha khan = still amazing
    video = kinda average.

    great_work!

    This is an abysmal video.

    I love Bat for Lashes, we all do, but this is just poor. Sure they have squeezed a nice look out of a cheap HD camera but my god it doesn’t suit the song at all, the shots of Natasha on the bed singing are just embarrassing.

    Real shame, her videos up to this point have been amazing.

  • Henry

    It’s hard to believe that the singer Natasha Khan is 30 years old.

    She looks really good for her age.

  • sn0wcrash

    Would I sumble upon this on last.fm, I’d be probably rather enthusiastic about it. However, this video pretty much kills the song :-]

  • patsy

    another awful video from her. whats with that? her musics great, but each video makes me cringe. what creative fools does she have running around her convincing her of their vision. its all try too hard high school style.

Mind-Bending Photo Manipulations by Artist Laurent Rosset

Rosset5

A selection of clever photo manipulations by photographer/architect Laurent Rosset, another artist experimenting with the illusion of landscapes which seem to fold back on themselves. You may recall Aydin Büyüktas’ work “Flatland” utilized a drone to create a very similar effect.

More of Rosset’s images below.

Shit Robot – “Lose Control” Directed by Kevin McGloughlin

shitrobot-losecontrol

One of my favourite videos so far this year! Kevin McGloughlin directs this mesmerizing visual for Shit Robot’s “Lose Control” featuring Nancy Whang. Stellar editing here – a perfect fit for the track. I’d love to know how some of these effects were achieved. Watch it over on Booooooom TV.
