Crystal Stilts "Star Crawl"

watch
Nature meets psychedelia in new video for Brooklyn post-punkers

Crystal Stilts have shared a tripped-out video for "Star Crawl" from their latest full-length, Nature Noir. In the clip, director Daniel Fetherston catches images of nature up the Hudson River and warps them in hallucinogenic hues. It's a fitting look for the track, which sticks to the Stilts' hypnotic, downcast psych-garage sound. Watch above. Nature Noir is out now via Sacred Bones....read more

Brilliant hand drawn animation by Kijek/Adamski

Here's a newish animated video for "Pirate's Life" by We Cut Corners from Polish directing duo Katarzyna Kijek and Przemysław Adamski, who created the entire thing by hand using markers on paper. They say the process was "As simple as it gets," but it doesn't look remotely simple to us. They also made this making-of video, which is pretty funny.    ...read more

The Solar Sinter uses a "sintering" technique, whereby sand is heated to its melting point, then cooled and solidified into three-dimensional glass objects. Kayser explains: In this experiment sunlight and sand are used as raw energy and material to produce......read more

Badly Drawn Boy, "Too Many Miracles"

watch
Animated video finds the singer exchanging his trademark wool cap for leaves and branches.

In the newish video for Badly Drawn Boy's single "Too Many Miracles," the UK singer-songwriter trades in his signature wool hat to shapeshift into a tree, a transformation made possible via some excellent compositing work from John Harrison. There's a bit of a mixed message to the narrative (is that supposed to be a happy ending?) but it looks good, so we're not going to......read more

Charming mix of stop motion, handdrawn and live action animation by Conor Finnegan.

For Conor Finnegan's IADT grad project, the young Irish animator gathered an assortment of cameras and went to work with paper clouds and scale models to create this wonderful, dialog-free short film that speaks to man's relationship with nature. It's a delight to watch. With talent like this, it seems pretty certain that Finnegan will get some solid clients in no time....read more

Handdrawn animated short reconsiders climate change.

When not producing hard-hitting journalism from the front lines of COP15 (yaawwwn), or suing the pants off the other WWF (pardon me, WWE), the World Wildlife Fund occasionally drops a great little animated video, like this one here. ...read more

Whitest Boy Alive "Golden Cage"

Handdrawn animated awesomeness from Geoff McFetridge

This charming video for indie pop champs The Whitest Boy Alive (a side project of Erlend Oye from Kings of Convenience) is an oldie but an amazing-y. Released in 2008 (i.e. ten thousand years ago in internet time), the video features drawings by L.A.-based graphic designer/artist Geoff McFetridge, who tries hand at animation – and wins. Previously featured on SHFT: McFetridge's wallpaper......read more
