White Rabbits / Percussion Gun

I’m diggin’ this video for Percussion Gun by Brooklyn-based, White Rabbits. Directed by Andrew Droz Palermo. In many ways it reminds me of Battles’ video for Atlas.

Watch the video below!


White Rabbits perform Percussion Gun on Letterman (CRAZY!!!):

The song is a bit old but I saw it on Monster Children and had to post it.

PS – Here’s the Battles video for Atlas (aka best video EVER):

  • That Letterman performance is inSANE. I have to watch it again.. and again.

  • NICE NEW BACKGROOOOOOOUND! :)

  • Too bad they stole the drum beat from Adam and The Ant’s Kings Of The Wild Frontier.

    No one seems to notice this for some reason.

  • Yeah, this song is super sick. The Letterman performance was so good.

  • dno

    I LOVE when a band plays with soo much energy that I have no choice but to punch myself in the face. These guys are heroes…

    • yea that synchronized drumming does it for me

  • GT

    the battles video is the best video ever? really jeff? i mean its good, as is the tune, but the best ever? i think that hyperbole might be one too far. GT

  • charles

    that band sucked
    but sick video

    • ^ no.

    • Kyle

      yea I could see that.. if you don’t like pianos, sick drums, rolling bass, infectious leads and puppies. Totally understandable!

  • BATTLES rocks my socks off. These guys aren’t too shabby either ;)

  • Meg

    Im plain and simply in love with that Battles track. So infectious

  • Thanks everyone!

Are the Similarities Between Trump and Hitler TIME Covers Purely Coincidental?

trump-hitler-time-cover0

TIME Magazine has just announced their “Person of the Year” is Donald Trump. Twitter users were quick to point out the striking similarities between this cover, shot by photographer Nadav Kander, and the Adolf Hitler cover from April 1941. Hitler was also named “Person of the Year” in 1938.

In both images the subjects are seated in chairs, but as Fader points out, notice the ominous shadow on the wall, and the way the colour of the backdrop complements the suit. For reference you can look through the past “Person of the Year” covers here.

Many are also suggesting that the “M” in TIME gives Donald Trump the appearance of having devil horns. Are people reading too much into this or were these intentional decisions? Have a look at both cover images below.
