In "Bicycle Sounds," a short video from photographer Stephen Meierding (who shot the Biolite Stove!), we watch and listen to an......read more

Wild Kingdom on hallucinogens.

In the video for "Bicycle," the standout track off Memory Tapes' 2009 album Seek Magic, director Jamie Harley splices together footage of the natural world, filtering the images through psychedelic, mind-expanding effects.

A Scottish surf adventure set to the sounds of fuzzy vox and scuzzy guitars

The new video for Bill Baird's "Captain Brain" takes us on a surf journey to the north of Scotland, where the water's cold but the peelers are siiiiiiiick (falsetto). Not sure if this is a fan video or what. The filmmaker is Edinburgh's Jonas Bak, who pieced it together from a trip he took with his mates. Dig the spirit and rhythm of it. ...read more
