The Video Feed 11/24
Well, here is some food for thought over your holiday weekend. I have started today’s list with The Arcade Fire’s collaboration with Spike Jonze on The Suburbs. This is a gripping take on youth in modern suburbia that I found seems straightforward, but was offbeat enough to keep you thinking about it. If you haven’t checked out The Wilderness Downtown website yet, I recommend it. Today’s second video is B.o.B.’s “Beast Mode”. It’s a playful video that seems inspired by Kanye’s “Monster”. I wouldn’t say it’s one of his best tracks, but it’s very much his style and I dig it. The last video today is one that I really wasn’t sure about, but I just couldn’t stop watching. It’s “Didn’t Know What Love Was” by Bernard Summer, Hot Chip and Hot City; featuring live shadows, an ostrich and a monkey.
