Last month, a crazy trailer called Mad Shelia took the Internet by storm. It’s a Chinese film that’s so blatantly a ripoff of Mad Max: Fury Road, it was kind of charming. Unfortunately, the trailer was only a minute—but now three more minutes have come online.
Pioneering musician Jean-Jacques Perrey passed away earlier this week at the age of 87, leaving a legacy that helped lay the foundation for electronic pop music as we know it today. He was also a longtime scifi fan who looked to the genre for inspiration. As a tribute, his collaborator Dana Countryman shared this…
Here’s a really cool music video that uses 3D printing, stop-motion animation, and projection mapping to make a model come alive to sing a song. It’s a especially trippy, because it’s like seeing a statue start talking out of nowhere.
The video for “Utopian Façade,” off John Carpenter’s Lost Themes II, isn’t actually directed by the horror master. But directors Gavin Hignight and Ben Verhulst definitely took inspiration from Carpenter’s style—plus some other cool science-fiction influences (can’t resist those Logan’s Run vibes) too.
The music video for Lorn’s song Anvil doubles as a short animation about the future where the year is 2100 and overpopulation is dealt with a mandatory postmortem social network. That is, a social network where people are forced to plug in and die. Yeah, it’s a wee bit dark.
For everyone bitching that there isn’t enough Joker in Suicide Squad (yes, I’m mostly looking at you, Jared Leto), don’t panic, he’s got an entire music video. Unfortunately, it’s really boring.
I hadn’t heard of musician Lindsey Stirling before her new video for “The Arena,” but she appears to have cornered the market on violin-infused electronic music. She also dances better while wielding a violin than most people can with nothing in their hands. And she seems to be a Mad Max series fan.
It is delightful even when it’s a cover/parody done by four Japanese comics. I would listen to this a thousand times over that Fall Out Boy disaster they released last week.
What’s this? Oh, just John Carpenter performing the theme from Escape From New York live in a Los Angeles recording studio. (Carpenter directed the video, too, natch.) Crank it up, imagine yourself infiltrating the prison that’s replaced Manhattan, and succumb to the incredible urge to suddenly don an eye patch.
The Jane Bordeaux band is based out of Tel Aviv, and they’ve recently released an amazing music video for their recent song Ma’agalim. It’s a beautiful, cleverly animated journey.
Usually a music video conveys something about an artist’s worldview. In this case, we can infer that the members of Tame Impala are successful businesspeople with limited control over their emotions.
I’ve literally had this track bouncing around in my head all week: it’s a catchy song, one that features a music video that’s probably the most fabulous James Bond-esque climax that has ever existed.
In Bara Heiða’s track ‘Stormtrooper, an Imperial stormtrooper is left behind in a strange world and finds love. It’s a cute, entertaining music video.
The band OK Go is probably best known for their complex, mind-twisting videos that make virologists wonder how they lost control of the word “viral.” Their latest video for the song Upside Down & Inside Out was shot entirely in an airplane flying in huge, zero-gravity simulating parabolas, and it’s astounding. The…
The amount of work that Superhero Pop put into this video is insane, from the appearances of the characters to the pitch-perfect recreation of the 1980s. I’m kind of in love with this.
I have a problem. I spent the past few weeks scouring gift guides in hopes of stumbling into something that I could buy. The problematic part is that I don’t need anything. And yet, I kept looking and looking and looking. It’s because I’m dumb and stupid and want to buy stuff because that’s what the holiday season…
Everyone’s jumping aboard the Star Wars train (Even Japan - literally). Korean pop band Exo has a new song out called Lightsaber that’s pretty catchy.
I’m not saying that Pixelord’s “Rescue Cyber Party” is something you should watch while on drugs. I am saying that it looks like the personification of drugs.
You know that feeling when you have too many tabs and windows open and you can’t find your desktop? That’s exactly how it feels to watch “Drifted,” the new music video by The Shoes. Actually, the music video is more stressful.
