“Groove is in the Heart” by Deee-Lite

28 Oct

The video for Deee-Lite’s “Groove is in the Heart” (featuring Q-Tip, Maceo Parker and Bootsy Collins) is a classic of 90’s psychedelic visual culture. The iconic video was not only released 7 years prior to the first Austin Powers movie, but also at least inspired the main character Ulala and world of SEGA’s classic psychedelic video game Space Channel Five.

Pinkshinyultrablast – “The Cherry Pit”

19 Mar

“Is all that we see or seem but a dream within a dream?”
I think this quote really sets the whole mood for the music video before it even begins. And once it does, your launched off into the outer reaches of the universe. That’s how it felt the first time watching this for me atleast..

Or perhaps you’re just sent off into “The Cherry Pit”.

Broadcast- Papercuts

22 Jan

I used to love this band so much! long stoned afternoons of a Jerusalem summer listening to Broadcast, but that hadn’t happened for a couple of years now. Sadly, I started looking for their videos only this week, when I heard about the untimely death of Trish Keenan, their lead singer.  The hypnotic object spinning in this video is a dream machine, that 7eit posted about here. So beautiful.

 

 

Pagan Psychedelic Puppets

Clinic’s latest video features a rite of horned hippy puppets summoning up some entity. what could have been a disturbing or just a bizarre image is kept sweet and small by the explicit craft of puppetry.

Clinic – ‘The Witch’

27 Nov

Following the recent Jefferson Airplane video, Here’s one from Clinic, a Liverpool indie-rock band. The 1960’s style light shows still works for psychedelic rock, only now it has that added nostalgia that goes well with their retro chic. I started with their video for ‘The witch’ an than got to their live performance that of course applies a trippy light show, and in between found a few more nice videos that go way beyond this convention, but retain a colorful delirious look. Soon on DPV!
