a couple music videos of note:

It’s just a good time of year for these, I suppose. First off, this one from Cold War Kids for ‘I’ve Seen Enough.’ Let the video preload on the site and then let your mind be blown.

Billed as an ‘interactive video,’ you can mix and match the song as it plays — clicking on a nattily-dressed member of the Kids will stop his track and gray him out, making for a good effect when you’d like to hear how the track sounds with only, say, stand-up bass and the kit, or when you just want the beat to drop.

And that’s just scratching the surface. Incorporated into the video are actually four versions of the song, each featuring different instrumentation marked by color. You can play it straight by keeping all colors together or get a little creative, pairing blue with yellow with red with green to see how it all comes together. Look at the ‘thank you’ list in the credits. Of course, something this mad-cap and musically involved has Jon Brion attached.


Then, of course, there’s the ‘Two Weeks’ video I’ve been harping about. You should watch it. It’s peaceful. And weird. And Veckatimest is out now. And I guess that just about sums it all up.
