Orphic Oxtra from La Blogotheque

Posted by on Apr 12, 2013 in Film, Music, Video | No Comments

I’ve written on here before about how much enjoyment I get out of La Blogotheque. It’s a place where I can meander for hours and discover so much new and brilliant music. It’s been an unsettling week for me and for some reason this spoke to me as soon as I heard it. I love ...

Just a video and some blurb from me this week. I’ve had an influx of Take Five requests and finding the time to write and research those along with a post has been near impossible. So, here is my latest musical enjoyment and another recommendation from the modcast. I also like the t-shirt worn by the ...

Allah-Las – Tell Me (What’s On Your Mind)

Posted by on Nov 23, 2012 in Modernism, Music, Video | No Comments

I love finding new music. By new of course, I mean new to me. I followed a few links around the other night and came across this band. It’s pretty obvious they’re from California, their sound unmistakably of that West Coast influence. Their music conjurs thoughts of that culture; the perfect mixture of sand, sea ...

Based in Cardiff and being hailed as one of the best bands to see live, The Method combine styles to create an energy and enthusiasm. The album is chock full ...

Fujiya & Miyagi – Ankle Injuries

Posted by on Aug 5, 2012 in Animation, Art, Design, Music, Video | No Comments

Just a quick one today as I’m working on some other projects, longer posts and busy getting together some questions for ‘Take Five’. I know this is a slightly old, but this video for ‘Ankle Injuries’ is still great and fits with the track perfectly. If you like this and want to find out more, ...

Cliché

A couple of years old this I know but I watched it again the other day and it’s still as fresh feeling and entertaining. An excellently written, illustrated and animated piece. Perfect tongue in cheek (langue dans la joue?) humour. I thought it was fairly fitting given the recent changes in France. If you like ...
