If there’s only one short you view from this site this year, make sure that it’s this surreal all-star animation featuring the music of Daft Punk, Death Grips, Future Islands and Devendra Banhart.
Just a little footage of Raunchy Rose and the Radioactive Chicken Heads playing Danny Elfman’s “Theme from Forbidden Zone” to get you jazzed for the inevitable (?) Forbidden Zone 2.
May cigar-smoking angels send you pink waves of peace on earth this holiday season!
“Chick Chick” is an infamously jarring Chinese music video featuring some ridiculous dance routines and sound samples. Don’t worry, there’s no deeper meaning to uncover. The lyrics are comprised of about five words, and the rest are animal noises.
In late February, They Might Be Giants put out a call for music videos to their new song “Am I Awake?”. The band requested that the entries be “…Beautiful, bold, stylish, contemporary, psychedelic, mind-bending”. We would like to share with you one of the three submissions that were selected.
A well-rounded combination of eerie music and abstract animation which seeps under your skin with its simplicity.
For more listening and viewing, I recommend Marie Louise’s live performance of Wind. The musicianship is astounding.
Animal Collective’s frontman Avey Tare has formed a side project (as each of the band members tend to do) and released this single to promote their album “Enter the Slasher House” which is scheduled to be released early next month. Just a quick watch, and you’ll see why we thought it appropriate for a weird movie site.
