check out the music label klamauk (which basically means hullabaloo) from mainz, germany. founded by tilman schwarz, michael fluhr and karsten brommenschenkel in august 2008. the label focuses on techno and house (or as they’d describe it: microfunk) releases.

not only do i actually like the music but the guys running the show came up with a cool web device. because the first vinyl release was a black and white print with individual hand coloration from each artist the guys from klamauk wanted to keep the individual element to their releases alive even for mp3 cover art. the website was realized by euro rscg 4d in duesseldorf, germany.

design your cover at klamauk.net/digital and listen to their music at juno or itunes.

evident utensil video

April 5, 2009

visually pretty interesting video for “evident utensil” from “chairlift”, an american electro pop group which was founded 2006 in boulder, colorado. the three group members aaron pfenning (songwriting/vocals/electronics/guitar), caroline polachek (songwriting/vocals/tambourine/synthesizer) and patrick wimberly (drums/bass guitar/keyboard/production) are now based in new york.

after “bruises” was featured in the new ipod nano tv commercial in september 2008 the band promptly got written up everywhere.

stay up (viagra)

March 19, 2009

another nice video featuring kanye west – “stay up (viagra)” from his album “the death of adam”. think director jason goldwatch did a pretty good job and i like kanye’s fable for ironic and satiric video interpretations like “can’t tell me nothing” which i loved. it’s entertainment baby.
