Bicycle Sounds

Watch Stephen Meierding's musical entry into the Bike Shorts film competition

From Brian Eno to Autechre, musicians long have used found objects to create sounds for songs. Hell, one of the greatest records of all time, the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds, has a song ("You Still Believe In Me") featuring bike bells and horns. But this we've never seen. In "Bicycle Sounds," a short video from photographer Stephen Meierding (who shot the Biolite Stove!), we watch and listen to an......read more

Another doozy from Jamie Harley

Are Jamie Harley and Memoryhouse the rice and beans of indie rock? 'Cause they go together goooood. Harley's hazy Polaroid aesthetic, full of quick cuts and double exposures, is basically the visual equivalent of the Memoryhouse sound. The video for Memoryhouse’s “Heirloom” is their second collaboration, and much like their first, features sepia-tinged visuals compiled from......read more

Dumbo Gets Mad, "Plumy Tale"

watch
Summery visuals for throwback psych jam

Dumbo Gets Mad is the unfortunately-named solo music project of a mysterious Italian dude (now living in Los Angeles) with a penchant for retro psychedelia. With its soaring organs, driving bassline, and la-la-la chorus, "Plumy Tale" is a nice slice of 60s psych rock, reinvented for the 21st century with fuzzed-out blips and electronic squawks. The video, a series of clips of surfers and beach......read more

Standout track off new Washed Out record laced with nostalgic visuals by Franck Deron

We've said it before: fan-made music videos are one of the internet's greatest gifts. Add this one to the pile. Director/editor/photographer Franck Deron cobbled together some vintage visuals to set with Washed Out's "Before," a highlight off his well-received Within and Without LP, released a week ago on Sub Pop. The grainy, nostalgic clips sit well with the bliss-pop rhythms and Ernest Greene's......read more

Joakim, "Forever Young"

Nice found footage vid for Joakim's wistful Indian summer jam

Contrary to popular opinion, the most awkward phase in life isn't puberty. It's the weird never-years time between youth and middle age, when you're not quite sure what to do with yourself. Joakim's "Forever Young," an optimistic jam about the fleeting pleasures of youth, is dedicated to those oddball years. The Paris producer's goal with the sound was "to make the soundtrack of a......read more

Still Corners, "Into The Trees"

watch
Shimmering, cinematic vid for upstart dream-pop foursome from London

In this swirling new video for "Into The Trees" from UK's Still Corners, director Ollie Murray serves up a literal interpretation of the song's title. Murray takes some beautiiful found nature footage, with cameos from a bear, a deer, and a waterfall, and juxtaposes it against kaleidoscopic shots of the band members doing performing the song. It's a dreamy clip, one that goes perfectly with the......read more

Porcelain Raft, "Drifting In and Out"

watch
Hazy, meditative new video self-directed by Mauro Remiddi

The new video for "Drifting In and Out" from Mauro Remiddi -- aka Italian electro-pop maestro Porcelain Raft -- goes heavy with the smoke machine, harkening late nights at the club when your favorite song comes on. A bit of found footage and translucent dissolves of the singer round out the visuals. Honestly, the track itself is buzzy and dissonant enough on its own, so the hazy dry ice effects......read more
