Always good for sweeping tracks that are equal parts sorrowful and grandly uplifting, Sigur Rós has released a video for their track “Varúð.” Having previously used one of photographer Ryan McGinley’s images for the cover of one of their albums along with creating a video inspired by his work, the […]
For those who identify a bit more with video games than active summer sports, here’s your upbeat entry-point into Summer Olympics fever. Enjoy this 8-bit rendition of a slew of Olympics events created by Flikli and get in the spirit!
Rather than making one video to highlight a single from their new album Never, Micachu decided to make ten. They’re not particularly ambitious in scope — all take place in the same comic-strip world — but the bizarre simplicity is a good match for the herky-jerky musical exploration going on. […]
I’m digging the stuff coming from Sinkane, the project led by Ahmed Gallab, a musician who’s lent his talents to Yeasayer among many other big-name acts over the years. Now he’s putting out tunes on the legendary DFA Records, including “Runnin,” which you can hear above. Don’t miss him live […]
We’re digging the new Chromatics record, “Kill For Love,” and now Brooklyn-based programmer/designer Ivan Safrin has translated the group’s moody atmospherics into game form with the online game Geometry of Love, inspired by the track “Lady.”
Rainy afternoon jam from Hot Chip’s latest, with accompanying video directed by Danny Perez that may remind you of similarly odd/mesmerizing videos from people like Michel Gondry or Chris Cunningham.

For his senior design project, Turkish student Murat Palta depicted a series of classic Western films using the style of traditional oriental motifs. The resulting images are a revelation, allowing us to consider these canonical stories through a more global lens. I particularly like what he did with The Shining. […]
The Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) has invited AC Gears to attend a local trade show set up by the JETRO Japan regional office in the Toyama Prefecture. We usually head to Tokyo and Osaka every year to connect with our existing vendors as well as seeing the trends from […]
Like a combination of Tron and Any Given Sunday, the new video for the Justice single “New Lands” pits players against each other on a football field and racetrack where they throw and knock around balls of energy in between smashing each other in the head.
Nom Wah, one of my favorite dim sum spots in Manhattan Chinatown, and the citys oldest, will now be the setting/subject of a movie that begins shooting this summer not a documentary, but a full-on movie-movie, with a plot that involves four distinct stories, eventually intersecting as the various […]
Final Frontier Design is a small company based in Brooklyn who have been in the business of manufacturing space suits for a fraction of the price of those currently used by NASA, and they’re soliciting help through Kickstarter to realize their newest project. The FFD Third Generation Space Suit would […]
