Cibo Matto – Reunion Tour 2011

18th May 11 (Wed) Leave a comment

Cibo Matto (Yuka Honda & Miho Hatori) are hitting the U.S. with a little reunion tour… I’ll sadly miss the Portland date by about two weeks… :(  But anyway, catch it if you can.

West Coast
6/21 Seattle, WA – Neumo’s
6/22 Vancouver, BC – Fortune
6/23 Portland, OR – Doug Fir
6/25 San Francisco, CA – Bimbo’s
6/26 Los Angeles, CA – Hollywood Bowl w/Yellow Magic Orchestra
East Coast
7/12 Brooklyn, NY – Brooklyn Bowl
7/14 Chicago, IL – Lincoln Hall
7/16 Toronto, ON – Mod Club
7/18 New York, NY – Bowery Ballroom
7/19 Washington, DC – Rock N Roll Hotel
7/20 Boston, MA – Brighton Music Jason Hall

Check out their cool split-screen, double-one-shot (one forward, one backward) video of “Sugar Water” directed by Michel Gondry

I like the video better than the actual song.  My favotire album of theirs is Stereo Type A (with some of my fave NYC jazz fiends like Dave Douglas, John Medeski & Billy Martin of MMW, Sean Lennon and Marc Ribot).  No word on their band for this tour.  I know most of those guys are busy, but… maybe Sean Lennon will join them?  I dunno.  Last time I saw Yuka Honda in concert, Sean Lennon popped up on stage for a song (with Nels Cline Singers at the Doug Fir earlier this year).

Grizzly Bear – Two Weeks (by Gabe Askew)

23rd Aug 09 (Sun) Leave a comment

Someone should have a job at Pixar really soon… here is Gabe Askew‘s fan-made video for Grizzly Bear‘s “Two Weeks.”  It’s very Michel Gondry-esque, but I think all done in the computer… it’s pretty damn amazing…

Her Morning Elegance

29th Jan 09 (Thu) Leave a comment

So, thanks to Barry for pointing this video my way…

I’d never heard of musician/director Oren Lavie or directors Yuval & Merav Nathan before.  This video for Oren’s song “Her Morning Elegance” reminds me of something Michel Gondry* would do (“in camera” special effects)…

Enjoy!

*Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep, Be Kind Rewind, several Bjork / Radiohead / White Stripes videos, et cetera…

Michel Gondry

9th Jan 08 (Wed) Leave a comment

Well, I’m excited about his upcoming Be Kind, Rewind with Jack Black and Mos Def. I loved what he did with Björk’s latest video for “Declare Independence” (as I was with his prior work with Björk and others). I’ve loved his prior movies (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Science of Sleep to name a couple). Now he’s already working on a new one…

Although his latest film hasn’t been released yet and he already has several projects in the works, Michel Gondry told the MTV Movies Blog that he’s currently writing The Return of the Ice Kings. Gondry’s still at work on the screenplay, but the name alone sounds fascinating, and the content, well: “I’m writing a story about kids who invent a water that makes you hear music when you drink it,” Gondry said. “It’s going to be a scientific story, but completely unrealistic.” Sounds more whimsical than scientific, but Gondry would probably be the expert on these matters, as he spent last year as MIT’s artist in residence and has come up with some fantastic technologies before.
