Tame Impala, "Elephant"

watch
Swirling visual effects applied to psych rock stormer

Yoshe Sodeoka must be an Aussie-phile. Fresh off applying his signature washed-out effects to a Canyons track, the New York-based director did a similar favor for their Australian psych compadres, Tame Impala. Here, Sodeoka runs live footage by Aussie creative collective The Silentlights through swirling, analogue-style effects. The kaleidoscopic effects offer a perfect visual......read more

Mindmelting animation features 1,000 plasticine collages made by hand

The new video for "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards," the second single from Tame Impala's landmark Lonerism LP, carries on with the swirling, psychedelic visual aesthetic on full display in the Aussie band's previous video.

Richard Mosse: Infra

Abstracted African landscapes shot with infrared technology

"I raised my head. The offing was barred by a black bank of clouds, and the tranquil waterway leading to the uttermost ends of the earth flowed somber under an overcast sky--seemed to lead into the heart of an immense darkness."  - Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness The Congo, Africa's volatile beating heart, has for centuries represented a vast unknown to the Western imagination. Irish......read more

AU, "OJ"

watch
Takafumi Tsuhiya delivers tripped-out video for Portland indie rockers

Here's a mindmelting new video for "OJ" from AU, the Portland-based experimental pop duo. Directed by takcom (aka Japanese motion designer Takafumi Tsuhiya), the visuals feature a flurry of warping and dripping images that reflect the tune's ticking percussion and textures. Tripped-out, psychedelic stuff -- Takafumi definitely did the track justice with this one. AU’s newest album......read more

Takeshi Suga: Sakuramadelica

Hallucinatory photos of Japanese cherry blossoms

The springtime bloom of sakura (ornamental cherry blossoms) is one of nature's most dazzling spectacles. Kobe-based photographer Takeshi Suga adds some wooziness to the equation with "Sakuramadelica 2012," a collection of super-saturated, dream-like shots of cherry blossoms in full bloom. The effects are slightly disorienting, as the familiar springtime sight is presented in a blurry and surreal......read more

Japanese psych-rock legend animates own video for solo track

If you follow Japanese pop music history, which we don't, then you'd know Shintaro Sakamoto as the former frontman of psych-rock legends Yura Yura Teikoku. Recently, we learned from the Twitter of ex-Girls leadman Christopher Owens that Sakamoto has reinvented himself as a solo artist and, judging from the amazingness of this self-made video, a very talented animator. With some......read more

Psychic Ills, "One More Time"

watch
An appropriately hallucinogenic video for the latest from Psychic Ills

One Track Mind, the latest offering Brooklyn's Psychic Ills, just dropped on Sacred Bones, and we have a video to go with it. The clip for album standout "One More Time" is appropriately psychedelic, with enough washed out visuals to ignite an acid flashback. While the album itself actually features more straight ahead rock 'n' roll than psych jams, this video keeps the freak dream alive.......read more

How Our Spaces Shape Our Thoughts

read
For the sake of your relationships, be careful where you sit

A recent study out of the University of Waterloo, in Canada, confirms our suspicions that our emotional states are strongly influenced by our surroundings. Sure as awe-inducing vistas can inspire creative thought, so too can environments that are less peachy provoke similar feelings. In this particular experiment, individuals who sat at a wobbly chair and table predicted that celebrity......read more
