1. To accompany his song, Love is Making its Way Back Home, from his newest album Bringing in the Darlings, musician Josh Ritter recruited the help of director Erez Horovitz and illustrator Sarah Graves to create this video, constructed from 12,000 pieces of construction paper.

You may have read about my undying love for Feist’s newest album, Metals. Well, she just released a video for How Come You Never Go There and I am still enchanted. Take a look below as Feist plays some sort of warlock of the woods with magnificent long hair. I would make a killing with…read more…

The Vaccines Use Instagram for their Newest Video

The Vaccines

As you might know by now, I am a big Instagram fan and I love me some British boys who can rock. So I am pleased to present The Vaccines who filtered through fan photos in Instagram to produce their newest video, ‘Wetsuit’. I think I have fallen in love.

Mayer Hawthorne Plays Mr. Smith in His New Video

Mayer Hawthorne

Hawthorne’s new album, How Do You Do, dropped this past Tuesday and I can say with authority (with as much authority as I have) that it is worth buying, especially if your musical preference leans towards old school soul.
