Elephant Stone by Galit RodanPhotography by GALIT RODAN
So I stumbleupon this really cool website today called SoutherSouls.ca based out of southern Ontario run by video editor Mitch Fillion. Branching outside of their Ontario roots a little bit to capture this neighboring Quebec indie group Elephant Stone from Montreal while they were visiting Toronto for their Canadian Music Festival debut. Sit back and drift away to this beautifully mellow track filmed LIVE in Little India, downtown Toronto inside an Indian boutique.

Tyler The Creator – “Yonkers” [VIDEO]

So I came across this hiphop crew Odd Future with and happen to find this new video release of Tyler The Creators’ newest video for the opening track to his second album “GOBLIN”. Besides the video being very creative with a great use of the lighting and shadows, the lyrics and flow that Tyler The Creator brings on this track is just “swag”.

Vitalic – “See The Sea (Red)” [VIDEO]

Vitalic has some incredible House beats but this video is just taking this music to another level. This “See The Sea” from his album, ‘Flashmob’. Here is a more detailed explanation of the video:

It illustrates how Vitalic Flashmob album cover was made. This video clip is an oniric and contemplative journey of a man recreating the 19th century experience of Etienne-Jules Marey on fluid dynamics.

Smoke lines represent the notion of stability, the triangle goes for the disturbance and incidentally for the V of Vitalic. The concept of a flashmob is illustrated here as a result of an intruder perturbating a stable environment.

Animal Collective – “What Happened?” [MUSIC]

Real cool track by Animanl Collective I scooped up off of SoundCloud. The song comes from ‘ODDSAC‘, a visual album created by Danny Perez and Animal Collective. It has a very Radiohead feel to it with the mellow background and soft vocals. Here is “What Happened?” followed by the trailer from their visual album ODDSAC.

Introducing… Teeth & Tongue [VIDEO]

Have a look at Melbourne, Australia zouk group Teeth & Tounge with their video for “Sad Sun” by Lucy Dyson. For those who are unfamiliar with this newer genre originating from the 80s, zouk is an Antillean Creole word meaning “party” or “festival” coming from the Caribbean islands. Teeth & Tongue place themselves amongst a rare bread of music in their demographic being not one of the popular zouk areas of the world. Enjoy their new video here and you be the judge; great video editing and design work is for sure.
