“Propaganda” by Petra Glynt

Visual Artist Petra Glynt used the website SELFIE APOCALYPSE for this video for her song Propaganda. If you are not afraid of being afraid of your selfie, you can check out the trippy tool with the link above.

“Linear Dreams”- Richard Reeves (1997)

17 Nov

One of my favorite animated films. Beautiful sound and imagery by Canadian Richard Reeves. The film is cameraless, with the images created by drawing painting and scratching directly onto 70mm film stock and the audio originating from drawn patterns.

Mac DeMarco – “On the Level”

13 Nov

A relaxing psychedelic song to get you in the mood and “On the Level”

Arcade Fire – “Black Mirror”

27 Feb

Music video for “Black Mirror” by Canadian alternative band Arcade Fire off the album “Neon Bible” I guess you could say that Father has brought you all down his bible to read for this Monday.

Arcade fire is an amazing alternative band, i would highly recommend giving them the old listen. Either there first album “Funeral” or there second “Neon Bible” is a good album to start on for them, “Funeral” if you like more folky psychedelic music, or “Neon Bible” if you like more dark alternative type psychedelic music.

On a side note, whenever i listen to this song or see it in my music i always remember the British anthology series “Black Mirror”, which is now on Netflix as an original series. I wont spoil much but its a psychological anthology series very reminiscent of “The Twilight zone” only instead of being in a warped reality of the 7th dimension, its in the very near future of ours. If you want to watch a really well crafted and good thinking show, then this is for you.

“Venus Fly” by Grimes & Janelle Monáe

12 Feb

“Venus Fly” by Grimes (who also directed the video) and Janelle Monáe brings us plenty of over the top psychedelia: the air is dense with feathers, bubbles, petals and white digital artifacts, there is always something bursting in slow motion and stuff that does not get smashed is on fire. Beyond that we also get popular kalaidoscope effects, neon and black contrasts and lots of trippy fashion. Have fun!
