J. Viewz, "About The Sea"

watch
Woozy track from Brooklyn producer gets animated video courtesy of director Clement Picon

Brooklyn-based producer J. Viewz (aka Jonathan Dagan) is building a nice little portfolio of videos for songs off his Rivers and Homes LP. The first, for the eponymous lead single, featured 300 still frames contributed by fans then animated into an ingenious clip. Now we have a new one for "About The Sea" from director Clement Picon, who has clearly been too busy making cool animations to update......read more

Lighten Up: The Honey Brothers Behind The Scenes

watch
Outtakes and extras from the Lighten Up feature.

Self-described as “the only hard-rockin’ pop band with ukulele," the Honey Brothers clearly don't take themselves too seriously. But, as we discovered on our first episode of Lighten Up, the playful New York City indie rock outfit is serious about at least one thing — the environment. In this behind-the-scenes look at the band, we catch them goofing off in their Brooklyn practice......read more

Lighten Up: The Honey Brothers, Part 2

watch
Brooklyn folk-rockers discover green touring ain't all that hard.

When the Honey Brothers took their new wave folk sound to the road, they made a commitment to minimize their tour's impact on the planet. Traveling in a biodiesel Sprinter van, the bandmates hit up local farmers' markets for grub and LEED-certified hotels for shelter. In this episode of Lighten Up, made possible by the good people at Stonyfield Farm, the Brooklyn five-piece inform us that touring......read more

Ah shoot, more evidence that Mark Ronson is actually THE dude. The video for "The Bike Song," off his excellent new album with The Business Intl, follows a story about bike gang spies set in swinging '60s London. The tune itself is a big, fun glorification of two-wheeled transport, featuring Spank Rock on pro-environment raps: "I can't understand it, but I can't really stand 'em, girls love cars,......read more

Yoriyos "The Pied Piper"

watch
Pop-up book style animated video tells a story of environmental renewal.

Judging from the lyrics of this song -- and the story of its beautifully conceived video -- indie-folker Yoriyos has the same values as his dad, Yusuf Islam (formerly known as Cat Stevens). Directed and animated by Ron Winter and Jon Watts, the video is a tightly wound narrative of environmental and spiritual reawakening. Great piece....read more

Brooklyn sustainable furniture company launches new line crafted from an iconic material — reclaimed Coney Island boardwalk.

Animal friends going for a ride in a green vehicle is never a bad thing, in our opinion. Brooklyn's Tiny Inventions delivers the goods with a fun and fantastic multimedia interpretation of They Might Be Giants' "Electric Car". ...read more

The Presets "Fall"

watch
A divine sky-diving video for the latest single from Australia's electro-pop heroes

Director Clemens Habicht takes a literal approach in his video for "Fall," the latest single by The Presets. Filmed above the Costa Brava in Spain, Clemens put masks of Kim Moyes and Julian Hamilton from The Presets on members of the French champion free dive team. Then he filmed the pair taking to the sky, leaping from a plane, and performing an amazing aerial ballet to the sounds of the band's......read more

Ruby Suns "Desert of Pop"

watch
Director Samuel Kristofski eschews digital software in favor of physical craft

In a filmmaking environment where directors can do pretty much anything with digital tools, we always welcome videos that steer clear of software in favor of classic, handmade craftsmanship. This lo-fi clip for The Ruby Suns' "Desert of Pop," from NZ director Samuel Kristofski, does just that. Combining live action with ink-and-watercolor animation, the video is entirely handmade, with......read more

In this sweet stop motion video, Willie Nelson sings about returning to a more sustainable form of farming

Longtime farming advocate Willie Nelson lends his voice to Coldplay's "The Scientist" in this charming piece of stop motion from Johnny Kelly. The story follows the plight of a farmer who, in an effort to modernize his farm, turns it into an industrial animal factory. Seeing the error of his ways, he reverts back to a small-scale, sustainable farm. The film was commissioned by Chipotle "to......read more

The Sea and Cake "Weekend"

watch
A perfect summer day in the life of a kid.

Ah, summer holidays, how sweet you were. This 2008 video for Chicago's Sea and Cake is so leisurely and nostalgic it almost makes us mad. The short follows the happenings of a perfect summer day in the life of some young bros, which goes something like this: cruise to the lake on bikes and skateboards, chat up some girls, jump off a diving board, go swimming, rip around on a boat, walk......read more
