Video of the Day: Trippy Hand Drawn Animation by Gabe Mangold

gabemangold-lastex2

Okay, this animation by Gabe Mangold is a masterpiece, and there wasn’t a single frame that I could pick that would do it justice. It’s the freshest hand-drawn animation I’ve seen in a long time. The song, Girl Seizure” by Last Ex, is wonderfully strange already but the video takes it to another dimension altogether. Found via our Booooooom Vimeo Group.

Watch the animation below!

Roy-Kafri-Mayokero1

Strong contender for video of the year. I’ve seen several similar concepts but none done so flawlessly. Superb video for Roy Kafri by director Vania Heymann. Watch the music video below!

Video of the Day: OK Go’s Incredible Drone Music Video

okgo-iwontletyoudown-01okgo-iwontletyoudown-03 okgo-iwontletyoudown-04 okgo-iwontletyoudown-05

The end of this video is one of the most insane things I’ve seen. I was positive it was faked with computer effects but apparently it was all filmed with a special drone, at half speed, to allow the dancers to move as precisely as possible. Even at half speed the effect that’s created is mind-melting. According to Billboard, by the end of the video the drone is actually filming from nearly half a mile away.

At this point there is no one that will ever top an OK Go music video other than OK Go. This one was directed by Morihiro Harano and choreographed by Airman. Watch “I Won’t Let You Down” below!

Love this video for Broken Bells’ “After The Disco”, directed by Nelson de Castro. It’s like a visual palindrome! Really effective use of a fairly simple set, and terrific editing here. Watch the video below.

Video of the Day: The Bots – “All I Really Want”

bots-buzzfeedvideo2

Madison Bullard has created a brilliant video for the band The Bots re-creating the experience of scrolling gifs on Buzzfeed, or in this case Botsfeed. It’s more entertaining than it sounds, and it just might be the most accurate depiction of Internet culture ever in a music video. Watch “All I Really Want” below, and make it full screen for the full effect.

Video Premiere: Wildbirds & Peacedrums “Keep Some Hope”

wildbirds-peacedrums

I’m excited to debut this video from one of my favourite bands, the husband and wife duo of Andreas Werliin and Mariam Wallentin, better known as Wildbirds & Peacedrums. They have such a raw energy, unsettling in the best way possible, driven mostly by Mariam’s vocals and lots of drumming from both of them. If you’re unfamiliar with their music here’s a couple amazing live examples to watch here and here (the 6-min mark of the second link gets me pumped every time).

“Keep Some Hope” is the infectious new single off of their latest album Rhythm. The video was directed by Anders Malmberg, you can watch it below!
