Music Video Vendredi – Fallulah’s ‘Out of It’

Posted February 3, 2012 by Mel

Rating: 4.5/5 Danishes What I think: I absolutely LOVE this artist! LOVE. I find this video to be walking the line of Where the Wild Things Are (that awesome book by Maurice Sendak) and falling down the rabbit hole à la Alice in Wonderland. It’s a little dark – both in content and literal absence of light – […]

Music Video Vendredi – Magenta Skycode’s ‘Kipling’

Posted September 16, 2011 by Rachelle

“Kipling” the song title of a poignant  yet simply beautiful music video was contrived for the Finnish Indie rock band, Magenta Skycode.  The musical rhythm complimented with the fabled plot of the video leaves meaning to be a construct of the viewers’ creative imagination.  The sense of fear that is portrayed in the dog chasing the […]

Music Video Vendredi – Lianne La Havas – ‘Is Your Love Big Enough?’

Posted July 20, 2012 by Rachelle

First off, I think this 22-year-old Londoner knows how to belt out a note. Her sound shows a mix of old-fashioned melody with hints of soul and pop, smoky vocals and splash of youthful vulnerability. My only criticism is how she blends into the overdone topic in music, songs about love. Although most pop songs […]

Music Video Vendredi – Hercules and Love Affair’s ‘Painted Eyes’

Posted August 26, 2011 by Rachelle

My opinion: “Painted Eyes” is the best song from Hercules and Love Affair‘s new album “Blue Songs”, although, I’m still in awe of what an instrumental  masterpiece “Blind” was and still is – let’s be honest, that hit pretty much was their inauguration into what is now a gay cult-like following.  So turn it up and […]
