Matthew Buchanan on Matta’s new video “Release the Freq” -
A friend of mine and talented designer, Ishmael Burciaga recently launched Album Art Collection as a gallery of his favorite album artwork designs. I’m looking forward to this collection growing over time. Also visit his Favorite Key Art Designs site for a collection of movie posters.
I just discovered this music video on Creative Boom’s new Tumblr site (using the Inspire Well theme) for The Japanese Popstars’ new track ‘Let Go’. The well executed and quite trippy animation style was directed by David Wilson and produced by the team at Colonel Blimp.
The animation reminds me of James Patterson’s, PRESSTUBE, work who really helped pioneer this Flash animation style in the early 2000s. If you appreciated the animation in this music video take some time to explore through the PRESSTUBE site.
Japanese band SOUR along with a long list of creative, technical, and design credits created this unique music video that combines your Facebook, Twitter, geo-location and webcam data. I can’t say that I’m a fan of the music itself, but the technical execution is well done.
I can confirm that connecting to Facebook and Twitter does not auto-post anything to your accounts.
There are tons of sites out there that overload you with information and editorial about what new movies, music, games and books are coming out this or next week. When It Drops cuts through all the unnecessary information simply (and beautifully) giving you a visual presentation of what’s new.
Designed by Ben LaFond and Dan Black, the new Arcade Fire tour posters are fantastic. From the color pallet to the design details they managed to visually capture the sound of the new album—The Suburbs.

In a print campaign to show the musical influences behind modern artists Billboard Brazil represented the pixelated likes of Marilyn Manson, Bono, Amy Winehouse and Lady Gaga made with their influences’ portraits. Agency AlmapBBDO took the campaign beyond print and created video installations that were installed in rock bars in Brazil. Anyone can walk up to the display, select their favorite artists, see a pixelated representation of themselves, and then upload their portrait to Flickr - flickr.com/billboardyourself.
For years I subscribed to Rhapsody but eventually lost interest because of the lack of social features in communities like Last.fm. In fact because of this lack I even explored creating an extension of Rhapsody that would aggregate and share what you’re listening to (now I need to find a good use for the domain - grooveroll.com). A few weeks ago a new site Rdio was launched that provides both an unlimited stream of music and social features that actually help me find new music and see what other people are playing. As a bonus the UI and design is incredibly well done.
Right now Rdio is in private beta, and I currently have
3 invites no more invites to the service. If you’re interested in checking out Rdio let me know simply saying hi - firstname.lastname@example.org Rdio also has a Tumblr blog setup that you might want to follow - blog.rdio.com
World champion freediver Guillaume Nery dives to the bottom of Dean’s Blue Hole at a depth of 202m filmed entirely on breath hold. This movie was made to bring attention to freediving and show another approach to freedliving videos. Editing by BLUENERY (Guillaume’s girlfriend) and music by Archive. Shot with the Canon 5D Mark II.
We wanted to express the strength of the elements water-earth-air and the sensations of freedom, harmony, exploration.

Running shoes become part of a DJ kit, in this online film for the Nike Free Run+, created out of Wieden + Kennedy, Tokyo.
I am absolutely in love with the art direction and design of the upcoming Tron Legacy. Also from the trailer I can’t wait to hear the movie score produced by the famed Daft Punk.
Anyone know someone who works at Disney Interactive Group? I’d love to do the site for the new movie.
