Magic Flashlights Comments | Nov 08 2008


Magic Flashlights from Mike Benson on Vimeo.
Knife Show Inc and friends uncover a strange phenomenon at Timberline Lodge at Mt Hood. Snowboarding video takes place in and out of High Cascade Summer Camp. Shot and edited by Mike Benson. Starring Brendan Hayes, Eli weiner, Scott Stevens, Chris Beresford, Matty Mo, Jesse Burtner, and Casey Wrightsman.

When it comes to snowboarding back in days I was super pumped with Robot Food’s first vidoe Lame came out because it completely added an new dimension to videos. They were fun again, they were creative, they were well directed and produced… snowboard videos were interesting again. And this is exactly what I feel Mike Benson is doing, making videos about riding with friends and just having fun.

And Yes the music is MGMT. For the other post of MGMT - Kids (This is My Empire! RMX) travel here.

Empire Of The Sun can walk on dreams and The Killers are dancers Comments | Oct 24 2008

Empire Of The Sun are one of those bands from Australia that are proving there are no “bad” music coming from the land down under. Empire Of The Sun consist of Nick Littlemore of Pnau and Luke Steele of The Sleepy Jackson. Who knows I could be hatted for this reference but Empire Of The Sun kind of reminds me of a Australian MGMT in a with their easy listening pop psychedelia. Many people have been claiming that the remix of Walking On A Dream by Sam La More (Sam Littlemore the brother of Nick Littlemore) is the best rmx of the song. While it is good, my vote goes with VanShe Tech remix. Empire Of The Suns debut album is currently available on iTunes - watch the video and when you see the album link click it and it will talk you to the iTunes store.

The new song by The Killers does not suck, it is just as authentic and majestic a band can get. Noting The Killers are getting weirder and more obscure their music keeps raising the bar for the fusion between Indie Rock and Alternative music. Human starts off with similarities to U2 and blends into a more familiar sound of When You Were Young but making sure that they are not just banking of the sound and success of their previous hit. I found Human also shares similarities with the Toronto group Put The Rifle Down. Aside from the roaming majestic animals I am in awe of Brandon Flowers feather vest… like what? A-mazing. The Killers new album Day & Age is being released November 25, 2008.

Psychedelic Beach Walks Comments | Oct 19 2008

I’ve been listening to a more calmer style of music as of late. I say its the productivity level that isn’t hinder by loud, fast electro/ghetto/glitch tracks. Some of the highlights from the bands that I’ve listened to for a long while but feel they need to be recognized more, well some are pretty popular and others are still fairly unknown. Passion Pit, M83, Air France and MGMT. They all have similar styles of psychedelic pop infused synth rocking with easy listening of some sort but everything is overly catchy and relaxing. Listening to these songs really just makes me want to go for a stroll on the beach at sunset or just drift around in spaceĀ  and not worry about a thing.
