A really cool appearance by Bat for Lashes on Letterman.
Canada’s Metric with a video for their new single Gimme Sympathy.
I’m really into PJ Harvey’s latest video for “Black Hearted Love”, simple concept but really well done.
If you happen to live in Portland please check out David Yow’s upcoming spoken word performance and let me know how it was.
A lamp, a camera, and a vintage Scrabble board is all it took for director and animator Yann Deval to create this angsty stop motion vid for Pornophonic Orchestra’s “Dimanche après-midi. Who says cool videos need a mega buck budget to get produced. Bravo!
A clever and unique music video from alterno veterans They Might be Giants.
Having been a fan of theirs from years ago I was stoked to hear The Jesus Lizard are re-uniting and will be playing live shows in 2009. Look for show announcements soon, including an appearance at the “All Tomorrow’s Parties” event next May.
A new video for “Magic Doors” taken from Portishead’s album “Third”. It’s great to see them make a comeback after a long break away from the music scene.
I just got back from seeing Nine Inch Nails in concert tonight, so I figured I would make them my Musik Pick on Zoice. An absolutely great show, although I think the assault from their light show may have burned out the retinas in my eyes. Oh well, I didn’t really need them anyway.
Catch them live in your town. There are plenty of shows left on their Light in the Sky tour.
