Wonderful ambient music. João Hasselberg’s first album back in 2013 featured highly sophisticated jazz music with a classic jazz lineup including piano, saxophone and trumpet. Over the years his music became more and more electronical and minimalist.
I was smiling throughout the whole video. For this video, Joywave created 65 fake movie titles and intro scenes, often just lasting a few seconds, inspired by 1980s B movies. At least since Tarantino’s Grindhouse the concept of faux movie trailers isn’t that new, but Obsession takes it to a new level firing off these short vignette-like scenes one after another. And the song is also pretty smooth.
From a trip to Vietnam, French beatmaker Onra brought back a box full of old vinyls which he used to make a wonderful album trilogy of short tracks blending R ‘n’ B and hip-hop beats with East Asian sounds. This is all three albums as one set. I really like it.
For thousands of years the moon has made her impression upon man and planet Earth. Now, man from planet Earth has made his impression on the moon.
The Chemical Brothers have rarely captured my interest musically wise. But they have made some pretty entertaining videos. Here are just three of their newest ones.
Eve of Destruction has tokusatsu which is always a win in my book. And I have got to admit, the song is not bad. We’ve Got To Try features a Formula 1 racing dog which eventually flys to space and crashlands on an alien planet. This is hilarious. Finally, Free yourself is about an army of singing and dancing robots who, well, free themselves from human control.
I mentioned the experimental trio Fogh Depot before on this blog. They have released a new song which features singer and piano player Anastasia Minster. This is a slight diversion from their previous work, but great nonetheless. It’s half dream-pop and half glitchy electronica. I’m looking forward to their next album.
The music ensemble Brandt Brauer Frick combines electronic dance music with classical music. And the result is intriguing. This is a new video for the song Masse from their upcoming album Echo.
The video was filmed in the Zwentendorf Nuclear Power Plant in Austria which never went into service. The video concept is highly interesting. Each of the musicians was individually filmed in a different room resulting in ten videos for each single instrument. The band has put up an interactive website which allows you to switch between the instruments. I recommend to check this out.
