MGMT “Cool Song No. 2″ Music Video

MGMT Cool Song No. 2 music video

Despite being completely underwhelming, MGMT’s latest album has already produced two great music videos. The latest one, directed by Isaiah Seret, stars Michael K. Williams (he will always be Omar from ‘The Wire’ as far as I’m concerned) and Dennis Hopper’s son, Henry.

The song is whatever but the visuals, my god. Hats off to the DP, Bradford Young, this is a stunner. Watch “Cool Song No. 2″ (a song title that actually makes me cringe) below!

The Doodle Project

The Doodle Project

The Doodle Project is wonderful experiment by Dante Zaballa, described as a big collaborative group hug. Zaballa made a modest animation of a character dancing and then invited 62 illustrators to re-draw individual frames from his animation in their own style. Even more brilliant he got 14 musicians to each create their own score for the dance, so as the animation loops you hear a completely different soundtrack each time.

The result is fantastic, watch it below!
