Eric Speed - Maniac

I used to wear a skeleton key around my neck that I found in an old house, a plain metal thing on a utilitarian chain, scuffed from a hundred years of use. I lost it somehow. Given away, maybe, or left behind somewhere after a shower or swim. I wore it for years, but forgot about it completely until recently, when a new, tiny key arrived at Burning Man, a pretty silver thing unsuitable for any actual, physical lock. I like it anyway, though. It is perfect, the artist's grown-up designer version of precisely what I used to wear. Sometimes the best keys are the ones for inside our heads.

Kimbra - Settle Down

Bonus: Kimbra singing with Gotye in a very Peter Gabriel-esque cover of "You're Just Somebody That I Used To Know".

Wore It Deep (The Tree Ring) from Destin Daniel Cretton.

Generous Shadows, their (new) album that includes this track, is available as a free stream or an $8 download. It is all very pretty.

FUTURESHORTS presents Charles De Mayer's film of Amon Tobin's Esther's.

Amon Tobin's album, The Foley Room, is an entirely other beast from other records. Not only is it flat out incredible to listen to, every single sound on the album is a home-made sample. According to the Ninja Tune website, "Amon and a team of assistants headed out into the streets with high sensitivity microphones and recorded found sounds from tigers roaring to cats eating rats, neighbours singing in the bath to ants eating grass". He also contacted the Kronos Quartet to make odd sounds for him. One of my favourite twists is that the rough, ripping motorcycle, saw-like purring sound that underlies Ether's, the track featured in the video above, is actually the sound of a honeybee's wings.

There is no such thing, in my world, as over-playing The Foley Room.

Also, if you're not familiar with FUTURE SHORTS, you owe it to yourself to thoroughly explore their channel, it's possibly one of the most satisfying places to wander on the web. A film distribution label specializing in globally sourced films of exquisite creativity and quality, "Future Shorts is the definitive short film experience."

Dancing Pigeons, a music video for Ritalin by Blink, commissioned for Deisel's spring campaign, Fire & Water.

Blink is also responsible for the superbly off-kilter melting chocolate bunny short and Ratatat's latest video, Drugs, which uses stock video to devilish effect.

The official, uncut version of Babybird's Unloveable video, directed by Johnny Depp, who also played guitar on the track:

The video, shot back in September in Herts, England, is based on the short story "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge," written by Ambrose Bierce in 1890. "This particular version was just a bit too intense for the folks over at Yahoo’s Standards and Practices department," Babybird’s label, Unison, wrote on their YouTube page. "However, we believe that this version gives the viewer the true vision intended by both the artist and director." Me, I like it, and I like how they sound a bit like Elbow. Lyrics like and we're floating down a sewer pipe like kittens in a bag in a love song? That's pretty great.
