'florence + the machine'

video killed the radio star

June 6, 2012

gimme a beat boys to free me my soul, but i also fancy myself a visual shindig to condiment my audio feast.

mini movies, the music video has to pack a big punch, or sometimes not, depending upon the intent of the song, the vision, and the director- in a very short time. i think some of them are brilliant.

here are a few recent ones i’m digging:

anything in stop motion gets my posture ladylike attentive. this music video from delta heavy is no exception.

directed by ian robertson and employing all the board games and toys of 1970-1988 passed {think hungry hippos, connect 4, and battleship}, “get by” is a stroll through memory lane and optical riot. it even made me tolerate dubstep. 

this video actually gets funnier and funnier as it progresses. a track race between band mates, esteban+vinciguerra & remy cayuela of of the french group naive new beaters the hijinks and shenanigans become more and more off the wall as the finish line nears in “jersey.

pretty much if david lachappelle directs your video, you have a winner. this is no different. it seems every pop artist wants this unique talent to shoot their music because of his candy store of creativity and deft command of eye pleasing color. florence + the machine’s newest single, spectrum, is given the david lachappelle wanded magic: rabid ballerinas, swirling chandeliers, and of course….miss florence. a winning combo bite.

wednesday happy to you m’loves.

 three days in and, so far, miss november is rubbing me sweet disposition.

i’m digging the easy, breezy no drama, non-sally ways about her.

there are a couple of other things pricking my fancy this week:

nails, short, to the point and a deep shiraz, mannerly staving off any balderdash that may lurk in my path. 

i can’t remember the last time i left the house without hat on head. my newest one provides me, not only the precious annonymity i so crave {these newport streets and the paps that patrol can be thorny}, but also ministers me with ardent freckle and melasma protection.

my daily greens: a kale, apple, cucumber, ginger & garlic cocktail of yum. i need them as much as my coffee.

and finally the whole album is finally available for purchase. my poor spin class is so over the 4 songs i was able to bootleg last august. thank god for them there is new florence meat. i highly recommend the entire album. hunkiest, the beast and i have been dancing around the house for days, loving every single track.

yes, this song, was released last month, but it sends me nonetheless. it’s a solid, stomp your feet, wave you hands in the air, shake it out kind of anthem. i encourage you to join me.

what are you currently diggin?

thursday happy m’loves.
