A Year on the Road: 7 Years Later

An accidental self-portrait series in the redwood forest

I stumbled upon a fallen redwood in Northern California along the Avenue of the Giants in 2005. I immediately fell in love with the grove, including what I have since called "my tree." I set everything up and took a self-portrait in black and white film. Every year and sometimes twice a year since, I have carefully picked my way through the Avenue of the Giants in the hope that I will recognize......read more

Growing is Forever

Jesse Rosten's ode to the Redwoods.

If you've ever been to the old-growth Redwood forests of Northern California, you know there's some seriously awe-inspiring, ancient vibes among those trees. "Growing is Forever" is a short from Jesse Rosten that he calls his "best attempt to capture the reverence I feel when in the presence of these giants." Not a bad attempt! If the narration is a bit too earnest......read more

Bathtub IV

watch
A time lapsed view of the Sydney, Australia coastline, in miniature.

Australian photographer Keith Loutit spent a year shrinking the city of Sydney to diorama size, using a video technique that makes everything look miniature. In "Bathtub IV," Loutit captures the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service in operation. The first responder choppers in flight, the clean beaches juxtaposed against an offshore oil platform, and the attractive little Aussies add up......read more

Absurdly adorable video for solo effort from New Pornographer.

With the help of director Dean Tzenos, Canadian indie rocker (and sometime member of the New Pornographers) Kathryn Calder put together a crazy cute video for "Slip Away," the lead single off her first album Are You My Mother?

Seabear "I'll Build You a Fire"

watch
A colorful video befitting of a dreamy, Icelandic pop jam.

Seabear is headed by Sindri Mar Sigfusson, whose solo project Sin Fang Bous really nails the Icelandic pop sound for us. "I'll Build You A Fire" is the second single off Seabear's debut LP, We Built A Fire (we have a theme here, folks). For the video, Sigfusson recruited his brother Mani to provide the visuals, and Mani came through with this colorful piece, featuring a......read more

Ah shoot, more evidence that Mark Ronson is actually THE dude. The video for "The Bike Song," off his excellent new album with The Business Intl, follows a story about bike gang spies set in swinging '60s London. The tune itself is a big, fun glorification of two-wheeled transport, featuring Spank Rock on pro-environment raps: "I can't understand it, but I can't really stand 'em, girls love cars,......read more

Breezy animated vid features crocs, triangles.

Animal Collective member Avey Tare (aka Dave Portner) keeps it in the family with this video for his nice new solo single, "Lucky 1." Portner enlisted the hallucinogenic animation skills of his sister Abby, who delivered this croc-infested mind melter. Hazy triangles figure prominently as well. Naturally....read more

Directed by Darren Pasemko.

Calgary-based indie folkers Woodpigeon enlisted Darren Pasemko to make an animated video for "Our Love is as Tall as the Calgary Tower" off their latest release, DIE STADT MUZIKANTEN. The animator quietly smacked it out of the park with this beautifully plaintive piece, a perfect accompaniment to the band's subtle chamber-pop. ...read more
