Ganglians + Jamie Harley

I was tapped into the wonderful work from the master found-footage manipulator Jamie Harley late last year with his work with Memoryhouse and recently included a video he made for their new “For the Years” EP. Jamie simply searches for perfect visual counterpoint to the songs he loves. He does this by deconstructing old films and remolding them to harmonize with contemporary indie music.

I really held myself back from including all of his videos in this post. This video for local Sacramento band Ganglians really brings the visual elements up to par with their stellar music. If you haven’t heard of this band I don’t know a better way than this to be introduced with this remarkable video for “Bradley.” The altered minimal color palette produces a cold feel of the film which, in its beautiful imperfection, projects the music and visuals in a harmoniously. Makes you forget that the film and music were originally separate entities. It is absolutely lovely that almost every frame/scene could be a stopped in any moment in time to create a photographic gem. Now let it soak in your vision and dissolve in your memory.

Caffeine

I featured this Brandt Brauer Frick in a post a long while back but I recently discovered there music video for the song “Caffeine.” The video was created by Danae Diaz and Patricia Luna based off of Diaz’s cover art for the Brant Brauer Frick’s album “You Make Me Real.” The video is very minimalist, which I love, and has a very simple yet engaging storyline. Reminds me a lot of the contemporary society of Japan, THX 1138, and a little bit of Kraftwerk’s “The Robots.” Drone!

New Tycho & Memoryhouse

I’m really excited to announce the early release of Tycho’s new album “Dive.” CD, vinyl, and direct download available over at the to ISO50 Shop. So far, I’ve ran through the album three or four times and I can’t get enough. This new music from Tycho has been long awaited and has far from disappointed. Looks like I’ll have my music set for my autumn/winter design sessions.

Visit ISO50 for more info.

I am also super excited for “The Years” EP by Memoryhouse which was just released late last month. The video above is a full stream of the EP with new and unreleased visuals by Jamie Harley. Jamie does a wonderful job capturing the emotion and feel of the music in the visuals with the dreamy, washed out, and psychedelic imagery. I’m really anxious for the full length LP now.

Also worth viewing: Quiet America by Memoryhouse.

The Horrors ➡ Still Life

I’ve been anticipating a new album from The Horrors for the longest time. Thanks to Jakub’s post on ISO50 I was filled in with the good news. They will be releasing their album Skying on XL on August 9th. After doing a little browsing I stumbled on their music video for Still Life. I was blown away the entire time not being able to take my eyes off the screen. The video is directed by Oliver Murray and reminiscent of Neil Krug’s photography. Between an beautiful array of color and layering of imagery the music and the video are quite cohesive. I might be a bit bold for saying this but I feeling the quality of The Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony” here. All I know is that this song is definitely going to be one of my favorite songs of the summer.

New Radiohead – Lotus Flower

Got a call earlier from my friend Ian and guess what he was playing in the background? New Radiohead! Completely caught me by surprise. Thank you Jakub for posting the music on ISO50. I’ve been in a design slump lately and this is definitely going to get the creative juices flooding my brain. The video featured above for ‘Lotus Flower’ is one of the singles for the new album The King of Limbs. I didn’t know what to think of it the fist 10 seconds but after watching it all of the way through I couldn’t get enough of it. Thom Yorke you can dance like a maniac all day! We will be posting a review of the new album within the next few days so pay a visit.

In the meanwhile, get over there and buy the new album The King of Limbs.

James Blake and the Brownboy

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I don’t know how this video almost slipped past me. I was doing my daily check up on GraphicHug and instantly recognized the artwork Alexander Brown, aka Brownboy, created for James Blakes’ self entitled album. He really did a superb job creating a unique and consistent look across the entire board of the project including the music video for the Wilhelm Scream, photography, and album cover art. Check out more of his work here.

Check out the live performance of ‘The Wilhelm Scream’ and official video for ‘Limit to Your Love’ on my previous post.
