Justin, sweetie, what are you doing? I thought you were going country, bro. Then I could be content to ignore you. Instead, you come out with this cheap I, Robot knockoff that’s just scifi enough to pique my interest. Only it’s bad.
Stranger Things has a well-cultivated soundtrack for its first two seasons, as well as a dynamic score, but it’s never gotten its own theme song. Until now.
The new video for rock band Spoon’s “Do I Have to Talk You Into It” consists of lead singer Britt Daniel being rapidly morphed, deformed, beautified, clone-stamped, liquified, and peeled apart in Photoshop. At one point, Daniel is transformed into a coyote, the Photoshop interface drops away for a split second, and we…
As horror and scifi fans well know, John Carpenter isn’t just the director of genre classics like Halloween and Escape from New York—he’s also a killer musician who has created some of the most memorable movie scores ever. With that in mind, he’s shot a brand-new video for his theme to 1983's Christine.
The biggest comic book show of them all, San Diego Comic-Con, has come and gone this year. Amidst all the hype and trailers, it can feel like it’s more about big films and shows than actual comic books. Luckily, one music video from the event is here to remind us that, yes, Comic-Con does still have comics.
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…
