Music Video: Grimes - "Vanessa"

So a lot of people who have seen this music video are intimidated by it. Some of them have suggested that everyone in it is high. But hey, we love it! We think the song is really good, also Grimes is hot. The video is a trip and is directed by Grimes herself.
To those of you who are thinking "This is the work of the devil!" we would like to say: get the fuck out of our blog. I mean really people, it's no worse than Lady Gag*. And at least this is good music.
Give this controversy a listen and let us know if the video is too weird for you and why. Enjoy!


*More on Lady Gag here.

Music Video: Husky - "Tidal Wave"

We are always on the look out for well-made animated music videos, old & new, that will trip us out. Today we found this gem; a simple little tune and lovely animation, always an excellent combination in the MechanoChameleon book. Have a look and tell us what you think!

Music Video: Slowdive - "When the Sun Hits"

You know when you see something and you're like "Woah, that is so 90's"? Well, we are quite confident that what you are about to see is going to be your "so 90's" thing of the day.
Released in 1993, and even then pretty obscure, this song has come back to haunt us, along with its highly pixelated music video that seems to have been tape recorded off of MTV back in the day when it still had some style. Enjoy!

Music Video: The Reason - "We're So Beyond This"

This black-and-white in color, hipster-before-hipsters, 5-year-old music video has been in our vaults for quite some time now, and we figured it was time we release it into the Robotic Reptile.
The song is a punk break-up ballad, but we do mean that in the best sense possible. Our favorite part about the tune though is the music video, which features Sara Quin of Tegan and Sara (our favorite band!) looking particularly cute, as well as some neat contrast. Have a gander!

Music Video Double Bill: Etyan and the Embassy - "Everything Changes" (Plus the Star Wars Edition!)

With Halloween coming up in less than a week, we thought we'd entertain you as well as stimulate your costume designing skills! This music video set a world record: the vocalist takes on 18 different costumes, all legendary icons in the world of music, and is edited zero times. That is impressive stuff. Thank you Yara Z for this and a whole bunch of other recommendations!


Next is the Star Wars edition of this very same music video. Quite a bit sillier, but you will definitely appreciate this if you are a fan. Warning: The song will be stuck in your head for a potentially long time.

Music Video: Animal Kingdom - "Strange Attractor"

We're going to pretend this country is not in ruins and just keep doing what we do.
Having said that, you should know that this is a creepy post. The band is creepy, the actress is creepy, the video is creepy. But in a good way.

Music Video: Blur - "Out Of Time"

Today's post is in remembrance of all the violence and death we have sought in the name of power, and a reminder that we really are "out of time". Our hearts go out to the injured, and to all the families and friends of the people who passed away in today's attack on Lebanon.

Music Video: Oren Lavie - "Her Morning Elegance"

An oldie (relatively), but a goody!
You already knew we love stop-motion, and this takes it to an awesome new level. The song is a sweet and easy tune, but it's the video we really liked.
