Fredo Viola

I love when I stumble upon beautiful and inspiring things when I’m not even looking for them. I was on Vimeo this morning, searching for a video clip to reference for a work related project, when I came across Fredo Viola’s video for Sad Song. He’s a multi-media artist/animator/filmmaker/musician who I believe is based in New York. You can see and hear more of his work on his very cool experimental/experiential website, The Turn

Fredo Viola – Sad Song

I was on hiatus?

Maybe. Maybe I’ve just been too busy looking for jobs. Or maybe I’ve been re-organizing my whole music collection. Or perhaps I was away in Austin, TX. But, most likely, I am just lazy and uninspired as of late.

That doesn’t suffice for an excuse. So, here’s some music. Pfft.

Good Shoes- Ice Age

Castledoor- Fall Apart

Slum Village- Fall In Love

I’m trying my best to be brave about this whole file sharing site not working business, but I’m about two posts shy of throwing in the towel.

This website takes video watchng to a new level. Try it with this great video for Animal Collective’s Summertime Clothes (directed by my former classmate/trusty boom operator, Danny Perez). I recommend going full screen.

PS – sorry that our mp3 links are down. our file sharing site is the worst!

The Antlers

Saw these guys open for Here We Go Magic a little while back. I only caught the last two songs of their set, but I really liked them. In fact, I liked them more than Here We Go Magic (who were pretty disappointing live).

The Antlers – Wake
The Antlers – Bear

I have some songs bouncing around in my head. Just making noise. Got to get rid of them. So, I’m passing them to you.

Window Twins- Maybe It’s Time (Sounds like someone wrote this when they were in some sort of drunken haze.)

Enon- Conjugate The Verbs (I just recently stumbled upon this song again while editing my entire music library.)

Archie Whitewater- Cross Country (Just a pleasant jazz tune to make you feel good.)

Josh Rouse- Hollywood Bass Player (This song reminds me of another song, just don’t know what it is. What does it remind you of?)

Here is a video of my girlfriend getting elbowed in the face. Roller derby is brutal.
