Another day, another sweet Eric Power animation. This time we have the official video for Toh Kay's interpretation of the Dan Potthast song, "I've Set Sail." The tune comes from their split album, You By Me: Volume 1, featuring the two singer/songwriters covering five of each other's songs. The album is the first in a series that allows for two artists to reinterpret each others......read more
In this, the second video for Lykke Li's "I Follow Rivers," the Swedish songstress ditches her pretty flower persona for something decidedly more ominous, donning a black veil to stalk a darkly handsome (and well dressed!) man through the snow. Eventually, they link up and all is well, but what's with her bloodshot-eyed camera stare at the end? Eerie. "I Follow Rivers" is the second single off......read more

What that means exactly we have no idea,......read more
Jamie Harley's found footage videos for up-and-coming bands are usually hazy, nostalgic affairs, and this one for “Gone to Sea," the first song off A Classic Education's Hey There Stranger EP, stays the course. The video combines the Italian band's heartmelting chamber pop with vintage visuals of kids frolicking in the South Pacific. The idyllic imagery, taken......read more
New Zealand jazz-hoppers Onsombil hit up fellow Kiwi Edward Saltau to direct this amazing short for "LOSTiNSOUND," off their self-titled full length released late last year. “Meandering through the shapes of sound this music video leaves the most intriguing stones unturned even as it visualizes the physical essence of music. Shot on location in Stockholm under near perfect atmospheric......read more
Eric Power's output of amazing, lo-fi animated videos runs so deep it would take us months to post every one. We might anyway. In this one, Utah indie rockers Fictionist gave Power free reign to do whatever he wanted with their song "Blue Eyed Universe." With full creative control (not to mention skills and imagination for days), the Austin, TX-based animation guru ventured deep into outer space......read more
Short of traveling somewhere tropical, you're not going to find a better dose of winter escapism than this Alan Jensen-directed video for Star Slinger's "Mornin'". Jensen's sunny, kaleidoscopic interpretation of the UK beatmaker's soulful sound has us wishing we owned a pair of 3D glasses. It's a Vimeo staff pick, a first for Jensen, who has made equally dreamlike visuals for the likes of Toro y......read more
