Mumford & Sons: The Cave

February 14, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Apparently I have been living in a cave because this music video released last year by Mumford and Sons has nearly five million views and a quick tour check shows they played, literally, in my back yard at the Riviera theater here in Chicago a few months ago and I was none the wiser. The four-member English folk rock band set the internet on fire last night (and crashed their own web site) after a quick 2-minute opener for Bob Dylan with the song above. I’m sure for some of you this is tantamount to me discovering a hot new band called “Radiohead”, but if it’s new to just a few of you my work here is done.

A Lull: Weapons for War

January 27, 2011

Christopher Jobson

I’ve been on the fence about posting this for almost a week since finding it over on fuck yeah chicago, and after watching it for the third or fourth time I’ve decided to pull the trigger. I have no idea what’s going on here. It’s kind of like somebody made a music video using the monster from M. Night’s The Village. Also there’s lots of bleeding. Whatever, I think it’s great and I can’t get the music out of my head. By the Chicago band A Lull, directed by Anthony Ciannamea.

NYC artist and animator Katie Armstrong just made and premiered this animated cover of Britney Spears at the Leipzig International Art Residency Program in Germany. Quick verification with the wife suggests this might be “the most amazing thing ever”. I have to say it definitely gave me the chills.

My wife says this is “way genius”

It’s choreographed music video day here at Colossal. I spotted this video for Australian singer Holly Throsby’s Here Is My Co-Pilot a few days ago and it really stuck with me. After quick verification from the wife, I learned this video is certified “oh my god awesome” and “OH NO THEY DID NOT”. Directed by Heath Davis.
