Music Video Vendredi – Parlovr’s ‘Pen to the Paper’

Posted February 10, 2012 by Ty

Montreal trio Parlovr (pronounced “parlor”) is a self-coined “Sloppy Pop” band with a rough sound and a unique way of spreading their music. You can find these kids making videos in transit-way underpasses all while creating loud (catchy!) melodies and sing-along choruses. Check out some of their other videos including “3 songs in a tunnel” and “Hell Heaven” […]

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 – Florence + the Machine’s ‘What The Water Gave Me’

Posted September 9, 2011 by Rachelle

My opinion: How good does it feel to hear some new Florence + the Machine since “Lungs” 2009 triumph?  Let’s be honest, I absolutely adore Florence but was becoming  a little squeamish with the anticipation of something unfamiliar. Then BANG, we got it – Florence tweeted to her fans “Hello interworld, I’m out of the studio and […]

Music Video Vendredi – Mother Mother’s ‘Baby Don’t Dance’

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 […]

Music Video Vendredi: Lady Gaga’s Video ‘Yoü And I’

Posted August 19, 2011 by Rachelle

My opinion: HAWWWWT!!!!!!! RollingStone’s opinion: “Though the last two videos from Born This Way – “The Edge of Glory” and “Judas” – were fairly disappointing, “Yoü and I” is a return to form that throws roughly eight million visual ideas at the viewer. At least a handful of Mother Monster’s looks in the video are […]
