Bon Iver, "Calgary"

watch
Haunting visuals for the first single of Bon Iver's upcoming sophomore release

"Calgary," the latest single from Bon Iver (aka Justin Vernon), is a characteristically bleak and dramatic number from the Wisconsin-based singer/songwriter. The song's brooding sonic palette is interpreted beautifully in this just-released video directed by Andre Durand and Dan Huiting (and co-written by Vernon himself), featuring hipsters falling in love in a dark forest landscape. Bon......read more

Adam Celt offers abstract interpretation of his everyday journey to work

There is something special about the morning commute to work on public transit, coffee in hand, mellow tunes on the headphones, with the low sun warming you out of your sleepy haze. With "Morning Commute," St. Paul, Minnesota native Adam Celt offers up an abstract video that captures that feeling well. "Most mornings I put on headphones, close my eyes and look at the sun as I ride the......read more

Beautiful official vid shot in Iceland

Though we've never been there, Iceland is a bit of an obsession 'round SHFT. The official video for "Holocene" — the standout second single off Bon Iver's eponymous second album — does nothing to temper our fixation. Director Nabil Elderkin represents the Icelandic landscape as a sort of fairy tale land (precisely what we imagine it to be in real life), through which a wool-clad boy......read more

Bon Iver, "Beth/Rest"

watch
New video co-directed by Justin Vernon and Dan Huiting follows the story of two star-crossed lovers in hazmat suits

"Beth/Rest,"the closing song on Bon Iver's Grammy-winning eponymous LP, is unabashed soft rock of the '80s variety, complete with saxophone, synth and sentimental lyrics. Now the song has a video that is just as heartfelt and (frankly) cheesy as the song itself. Co-directed by Mr. Bon Iver Justin Vernon alongside Dan Huiting, the video follows the story of two star-crossed lovers in illuminated......read more

Surreal video collage created by British animator Cyriak

Cyriak is back. The British animator, who you may or may not know from his mindbending work for Flying Lotus and Adult Swim, returns with a surreal video collage for Bonobo's newest song, "Cirrus." Featuring '60s public information film footage that loops along to the airy, bouncy track, the clip builds into a kaleidoscopic crescendo of imagery. Pretty amazing. "Cirrus" is the lead single from......read more
