Cass McCombs – “Brighter!” featuring Karen Black from Hector Savage on Vimeo.

Cass McCombs – “Brighter!”

A tribute music video to the late Karen Black. Her husband, Stephen Eckelberry, helped make it.

Stephen: “Cass McCombs emailed me in late November 2013 and asked if I would create a music video for Brighter! using classic clips from her movies. It struck me as an opportunity to explore a theme that interests me – the relationship of film and memory. We watch a movie and the images from that movie become part of our memory stream. An image came to me: Cass himself becoming a screen for the projection of images of Karen – as if his memories of her were playing themselves out over his body. I found a clip I had shot with my iPhone when Cass was over at our house rehearsing the song with Karen, and I combined that with clips of her movies, some iconic, some more obscure.

Burials is the upcoming ninth studio album by the American rock band AFI. It will be released on October 22, 2013 through Republic Records.
In a statement regarding the album, AFI frontman Davey Havok said, “This record is of silence, of burials, and the burials that result from that silence. It’s of betrayal, cruelty, weakness, anxiety, panic – deep and slow – despair, injury and loss. And in this it is shamefully honest and resolutely unforgiving”.

We can’t wait for the 22nd here in the Revolution HQ.

Kanye West’s new music video is amazing. The dude himself might get a lot of flack from some people, but he is on the ball with creativity in his projects. The new video “Black Skinhead” was directed by Nick Knight, and is interactive. What does that mean? Well, you have the power to slow the song down and slow down the motion while the song plays.

NEW BLACK LUNG MUSIC VIDEO

Black Lung “Beliefs” from the upcoming album Blame Black Lung out on Angry Africa Records.

Directed, filmed & edited – Michael Ellis (snapkamera.com)
Assistant – Dirk Steenkamp

About the video:

The making of the Black Lung music video was done with a crew of two guys. The location was set in The Pit, Cape Town. The production was followed through with with a minimum budget (no budget).

Once the shoot was wrapped, Michael took it all into post production and put together the first cut. After the first cut was approved he could start with the real hard work… Michael took each frame of the video sequence and printed them, recreating the music video on paper which then got scratched and spilled coffee on. The video consisted of 3 875 images which were then scanned back into a digital form and then time consumingly cropped and separated and put back into motion.

So “Beliefs” is a work of art and has gone through a lot of BLOOD, SWEAT and COFFEE because our boy Michael does not cry!

Check out some photos from the launch of the video here: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151411108631324.1073741829.197313746323&type=3

LOW PROFILE MUSIC VIDEO

Apathetic Means is the third official music video from Lowprofile from their album “A Vulgar Display Of Powerchords”. If you missed our interview with them you can check it out here.

Directed by Luke Mason, winner of Interpret Durban 2012’s Best Film Award and filmed by DOP Jimmy Reynolds, Apathetic Means stars Catharine Nolan as a girl on a quest to discover what’s at the other end of the mysterious red cable that was plugged into her VCR, interrupting her planned lazy Sunday in, with transmissions of a band performance in a derelict house that seems to be for an audience of one – herself.

Her journey takes her through a variety of surreal scenes – upmarket businessmen getting pantsula haircuts, suntanning street children, orthodox muslim skateboarding – all seen through a lens with a deep love for the city of Durban.
