Touch Me I’m Going To Scream Pt 2, My Morning Jacket, director: Mixtape Club, production company: Hornet Inc

Next up is Mixtape Club’s beautiful animated promo for My Morning Jacket’s track Touch Me I’m Going To Scream Pt. 2. Mixtape apparently drew inspiration for the video from sources including the BBC’s Planet Earth series, foliage plucked from the streets of New York City, and the work of Russian animator Yuri Norstein. Quicktime.


Lights Out, Santogold, director: Kim Gehrig, production company: Academy

Kim Gehrig has directed this video for Santogold track Lights Out. Often performance videos are a little tiresome these days, but with some neat editing, kooky lipstick and fancy backdrops, this one’s pretty special. Quicktime.


What’s Your Problem, The Zutons, director: Scott Lyons, production company: Factory Films

I’m not sure how well this new video for The Zutons’ track What’s Your Problem matches the song, but there’s something about it’s slow-mo styling that keeps you watching nonetheless. Quicktime.


After The Rain, Little Dragon, director: François Vogel, production company: Thomas Thomas Films

Finally, we end with François Vogel’s sweet vid for Little Dragon track, After The Rain. Quicktime.

Tube Philosophies

We came across this image today, taken recently at London’s King’s Cross station. While it’s nice to think that London Underground sanction this kind of freedom of expression in their employees, we believe it might be the work of artist Jeremy Deller. The artist had apparently been set to collaborate with LU staff on a series of pieces as part of the wider Art on the Underground programme, as Tamsin Dillon, head of the project explains in the current issue of CR: “Jeremy has come up with a booklet of quotes by the famous and not-so-famous and staff will be invited to use those in their communications with customers.” So, if this is Deller’s work, then there may be more underground philosophising to come. Keep ’em peeled.
