Sounds & Images

Here are last week's songs and videos worth presenting:

Arctic Monkeys - Black Treacle

This is the first single that I've really liked from all the singles they've released from their latest album 'Suck It And See' released last June. The video features a runaway bride, the Californian desert and a prisoner with a bouncy tennis ball.

The Kills - Last Goodbye

You know when people play Green Day's Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life) at graduations, goodbye parties, funerals or so.. I say Last Goodbye could take that place. Though as a song, which actually can bring tears to your eyes (and with a different meaning). And I can't think of a better idea for a video than to have the two band members stuck with each other in a small photo booth.

Austra - Spellwork

Finally we have a new video! It took 8 months! Seeing this photo, and then watching the video, have to say I expected something different. First time watching it I was a bit disappointed, but watching it now again, there are many interesting shots and angles used, which make me want to watch it many times more. And I actually love how they make watermelon look evil.

Dominant Legs - Make Time For The Boy

A new band I've discovered recently. Being able to watch Twin Peaks from beginning to end last summer after the 4th attempt, there is no doubt that everyone who's seen that show thinks about it while watching the video. Just seeing the resemblance brings back good memories from that time. And the song is grrreat! A song to play at weddings?

And how would today's music scene look like, if she was still around? Only 22.. Would have turned 33 today.

Hope you've enjoyed and discovered new music and filming ideas!
