Director Ewan Jones Morris does his take on the morphing technique made famous by Michel Gondry, for his Rolling Stones video. The song is “Crushed Pleats” by Dralms, and the video has some great moments (especially for those that haven’t seen this technique before). Watch it below.

Music Video: Modest Mouse “Coyotes”

modestmouse-coyotes

Modest Mouse are set to release their first new album since 2007, Strangers to Ourselves. They’ve just released a video for the song “Coyotes” and it’s based on the true story of coyote that rode the Portland light rail train in 2002. If anyone knows who directed this let me know and I’ll add the credit to the post (I wasn’t able to find any info).

*EDIT – This video was directed by Matt Clark who is art directing and designing Modest Mouse’s new album and singles, as he did for Good News For People Who Love Bad News in 2009. I posted about Matt’s work under the name Houston in 2011. “Coyotes” originally started as a short film called Passenger.

Watch the video below.

Video Premiere: Vikesh Kapoor “Blue-Eyed Baby”

vikesh-kapoor-blueeyedbaby1

Happy to premiere this video for Vikesh Kapoor’s “Blue-Eyed Baby”, from his terrific debut album “The Ballad of Willy Robbins”. I don’t know much about folk music but I find there’s a honesty in his music that I don’t hear in a lot of the folk pop that’s become so popular. Really beautiful stuff.

Vikesh is headlining a tour around the UK/Ireland next month, so for those of you who live out that way, I’ve included a list of tour dates along with the video below!

Music Video: Viet Cong “Silhouettes”

vietcong-Silhouettes

Calgary indie rock band Viet Cong get a great video from director Brook Linder. The band sorta reminds me of Interpol and the video sorta reminds me of 2001 (and both are good in my books). Watch the video for “Silhouettes” below.
