Last 2014 Videos: Serious

January 6, 2015

Sunmonks’ “In a Desert of Plenty” is the rare track that succeeds in interpreting the rhythm and mood of the song with the clip. Most entrancing is the sections where the director tracks the polyrhythmic backbeat with the erratic motion of feet. (You just have to watch it.)

I love a good animated clip, especially when it tells an interesting (if slightly inscrutable) story.

Lights and Motion is back with a new album and a new video! The video for “The Spectacular Quiet” follows previous videos in having absolutely brilliant cinematography scoring a narrative that takes some thinking about. (Also: quite spectacular; not very quiet.)

If you’re the sort of person that appreciates slowly-unfolding musical mood pieces, then you might also appreciate a three-part, 15-minute, slowly-unfolding video mood piece set to three Jesse Marchant songs. Not a lot happens in the 15 minutes in terms of action, but it’s really pretty cinematography.
