Pictureplane – “Hyper Real” Video

The DIY polyglot pop producer Pictureplane released his “Hyper Real” single last month, and its new video is a good one. The clip documents one hell of a house party — the type that involves mysterious energy drinks, random hookups, enormous goths, face-tatted miscreants, neon vomit, and an absolutely great surprise ending. Jesus Rivera directed… More »

Pictureplane – “Hyper Real”

It’s coming up on three years since chaos-dance producer Pictureplane released his Thee Physical album, and he doesn’t seem to be in any particular hurry to follow it up. But Pictureplane does have a new single: “Hyper Real,” which uses his nerve-damaged futurism in service of a twinkling, sighing pop song. Weirdly, it might be… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Hey, whoever’s in charge of music video releases! Can you space things out a little better, please? Last week, I scrambled to come up with five watchable videos.

Antwon – “Living Every Dream” (Prod. Pictureplane) Video

Area Codes: 303 – Denver, CO

Of all the Area Codes we’ve done so far, Denver is the biggest city, so it’s probably not a surprise that it has one of the richer histories of anything in the series. Before the jam band craze of the early-to-mid ’90s, Denver was long established as a friendly, scenic city conducive to folk act… More »

Travis Egedy just premiered the official video for “Negative Slave” over at He says he wanted to create a “lifestyle video … sort of like a rap video, that just is a window into my daily life.” And it succeeds in that sense: seeing Pictureplane tripping on acid while dancing atop an ancient Mexica… More »

Pictureplane – “Post Physical” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

When writing about “Post Physical” from BTW Pictureplane’s great new album Thee Physical, I noted Travis Egedy has a knack for “mixing unexpected styles and noisy/smooth cross-genre sounds to create some of the most effortlessly catchy (and impressively DIY polished, living/breathing) dance tracks” you’ll hear all summer. It’s basically a refined form of fucked-up, unrefined… More »

Pictureplane – “Post Physical”

Travis Egedy, aka 2009 BTW Pictureplane, has an amazing way of ambitiously mixing unexpected styles and noisy/smooth cross-genre sounds to create some of the most effortlessly catchy (and impressively DIY polished, living/breathing) dance tracks. A couple years ago I said Dark Rift was “the dance record of the summer for people who aren’t used to… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: June 2011

June’s started on a hot streak: It made sense to counter the sweat by opening this Monthly Mix of recent standout free MP3s with a few chillier tracks.
