We’re happy to be able to share this beautifully directed video for School Of Seven Bells of the song “I L U”. This video comes at a perfect time where many videos these days are very experimental and wonder off to something that usually is just visually appealing while the makers of I L U went straight in and grasped at what the song stood for and definitely put together a strong emotional piece of work.

Dry Waves is a compilation put together to show how gorgeous and diverse music can get when you stay away from filing work into genres. All the musicians on the compilation I personally feel are on a path of making music that keeps me on the edge of my seat when it comes to new ideas and experimenting.

OUT THERE designed this very nice “e-invite” flyer for the Design Institute of Australia’s annual Milan Furniture Fair Review. At first glance I was sure this was some vintage poster but on further inspection realized, not only was it not old and not a poster, it was an animated gif…. You know, just in case the David Ope stuff wasn’t enough for you. The comeback continues, next stop, Geocities 2!

This entire video — a TV spot for Silestone, apparently some sort of space-age counter top material which shatters all of your fruits and vegetables on contact — is CGI. Incredible. If I could do video like this I’d spend all my time recreating sets from 2001.

It was sad to hear about the loss of the singer from The Slits just a bit ago, this new song by Anika on Stones Throw reminds me alil bit of that of what I liked about The Slits, the power in the voice isn’t there here but the charm of how loose and free the making of the music is something i’ve always wised I could do and this girl has that.
i’m a sucker for sampled cut up guitars that loop in a pretty way, thats why this Years song is up here today.
Lukid does fascinating things with low end, i’m always checking in on what he’s going to do on the less hype songs like this.
Stellar OM Source laid down a very interesting LP that became available yesterday, a personally can’t get enough of this Sand Lie track, I just wish it was longer.

Design Observer posted a little behind-the-scenes of Marian Bantjes’ new book cover design. Bantjes walks you through her sketches and path to the eventual solution. An amazing peek into her process. Haven’t read the book yet, but it’s on the way. Some more info here.
