Metronomy – “The Upsetter” Video

It’s not surprising that Metronomy’s new video for “The Upsetter” is creative and beautiful, considering the other videos spawned by the band’s latest album, Love Letters: “Reservoir” and “Month Of Sundays.” The Daren Rabinovitch-directed clip for “The Upsetter” shows a lonely primitive woman creating a lover from elements of nature. The natural setting is a… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Here’s one nice thing about the whole U2 debacle: They didn’t forcibly beam any music videos into your iTunes! Imagine how those things would’ve looked. Actually, as it turned out, this was a great week for music video, and I had a hell of a time picking a #1 from a field of worthy contenders. More »

Metronomy – “Month Of Sundays” Video

Metronomy has had a strong run of music videos for their newest album Love Letters, including the watercolor cartoon world of “Reservoir” and the Michel Gondry-directed clip for the eponymous track. For the final video for the album, they recruited visual artist Callum Cooper, who set up a rig to shoot around a utilitarian concrete… More »

Stream Metronomy Love Letters

The British dance-rockers and festival mainstays Metronomy are about to release their fourth studio album Love Letters, and “I’m Aquarius” and “Love Letters,” the first two albums, suggest that they’re going for more of a starry-eyed, psychedelic vibe this time around. But we can all figure it out together, since Love Letters is now streaming… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

For whatever reason, this is the week that many of the old music-video-director gods awakened to walk the earth again. Their names, chanted aloud, inspire nothing but fear in the hearts of the music-video directors of today: Gondry! Romanek! Pellington! Those younger directors, the ones used to working on YouTube budgets, hoped and prayed that… More »

Metronomy – “Love Letters” Video (Dir. Michel Gondry)

Michel Gondry is my pick for the greatest music video director of all time, and his new video for “Love Letters,” an uptempo glam-rocker from the British dance-rock group Metronomy, is the first music video he’s directed since Björk’s “Crystalline” in 2011. As someone who watches a ton of music videos, it’s a pleasure to… More »

Metronomy – “Love Letters”

When we heard “I’m Aquarius,” the first single from the new album by UK singer and producer Metronomy (aka Joe Mount), Tom described it as “Drake meets Mount Eerie.” That was accurate in ways I’m still trying to wrap my head around. The newly released title track doesn’t sound anything like those, though. Rather, from… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

I don’t know if you guys knew this, but there are 17 new Beyoncé videos this week. A lot of them are awesome, too. In fact, I had fully expected to write this column about nothing but the five best videos from BEYONCÉ. The one problem with that: You have to actually buy the album,… More »

Metronomy – “I’m Aquarius” Video

Last month we heard Metronomy’s “I’m Aquarius,” the first single from Joe Mount’s upcoming Love Letters. Now that song has a video by director Edouard Salier in conjunction with Somesuch and the Creators Project. It’s a little bit like if Wes Anderson had made Gravity instead of Alfonso Cuarón and also reminiscent of those BrokenMore »

Metronomy – “I’m Aquarius”

Metronomy is Joe Mount, a British singer and producer who always seems to be billed near the top at festivals over there. Next year, he’ll release the new album Love Letters. First single “I’m Aquarius” is a soft, skeletal thump that exists at some imaginary midpoint between Drake and Mount Eerie, if you can picture… More »

Download Oddisee’s Odd Renditions EP (Feat. Bon Iver, Marvin Gaye & More) (Stereogum Premiere)

One of last year’s great unheralded treasures was Rock Creek Park, a gorgeously lush mostly-instrumental rap album from the Washington, D.C. rapper/producer Oddisee. Oddisee’s latest project also makes great use of the man’s gifts for melody and arrangement. It’s Odd Renditions, a new EP of remixes and reworkings. On the EP, Oddisee takes apart and… More »

Coldplay, Metronomy, The Pierces @ Hollywood Bowl, Hollywood 5/2/2012

Coldplay’s domination of Southern California continued as they are in the midst of an impressive run of three sold out nights at the historic Hollywood Bowl in support of their album Mylo Xyloto. Fireworks, lasers, confetti, neon glowing wristbands and a twenty-one song setlist enthralled the capacity crowd. Some of the many highlights included the… More »
