Check Out This Great Dance Video

By Iman Lababedi | September 13, 2013

The song is “All Those Things That I Have Done” which I actually don’t hate as much now that I have had the pleasure of watching Barbara Collins brilliantly synchronized six minute dance video, with 26 dance excerpts set to the Killers song.

You Gotta Know Arctic Monkeys' New Single, 'Do I Wanna Know?'

David Bowie's Last Video Offends The Catholic Church,… As Usual They Don't Get It

By Alyson Camus | May 11, 2013

“I was young, fancy free, and Tibetan Buddhism appealed to me at that time. I thought, ‘There’s salvation.’ It didn’t really work. Then I went through Nietzsche, Satanism, Christianity…pottery, and ended up singing. It’s been a long road.” Too bad the pottery didn’t work

New Outernational's video for 'The Beginning is Here’

By Alyson Camus | April 6, 2012

The rocking song starts with a throbbing accordion, a lot of clapping-foot tapping, then these fierce trumpets and Miles Solay are announcing the revolt, with some mad dancing over Cumbia-inspired keys and in-your-face vocals: ‘The songs I sing, they can cast a spell/I don’t know no borders and I know them well/These rebels are microphones’

David Lynch releases a batshit crazy video for his song 'Crazy Clown Time'

By Alyson Camus | April 4, 2012

It’s sick and it’s fun, it’s meaningless and it’s terrifying, but if you are used to Lynch’s phantasmagoric cinematic universe, nothing there should really surprise you

Florence Welch and Josh Homme singing 'Jackson' together

By Alyson Camus | April 4, 2012

Florence’s voice is totally fitting the song – I mean she has some vocal chords, but I was not seen her in the country department and was totally wrong! Whereas she effortlessly pushes the high notes, without June Carter’s raucous tone and taking some liberties with the original, Homme’s voice, although less spectacular, is complementing her quite nicely

The Ramones, 1974 (Video Included)

By Iman Lababedi | February 11, 2012

This isn’t proto Ramones, it is pro. Sure the melodies would get better, and sure Jooey would thing better, but otherwise, they didn’t change a bit for the next quarter of a century. The leather coats and jeans, the lounging, roaring, tight as fuck, loud fast lRamones are rolling through your brain cells.

By Alyson Camus | December 18, 2011

video for Shadow Shadow Shade’s song ‘Say Yes’, reviewed

By Alyson Camus | August 22, 2011

Music videos are very often pointless and shallow, but if you stay insensible to this one directed by O’Shea Read for Shadow Shadow Shade’s song ‘Say Yes’, there is no hope for you. The bombastic anthem is used to document the life of an immigrant worker named Alonso Alejo Lopez who struggles to make a…
