Monday Music Movies – Monday 11th August 2008

By on Monday, 11th August 2008 at 10:53 am

Ladytron: Runaway
This may not be my favourite Ladytron track ever, but just about anything they do is fine by me!

Ben Folds: Hiroshima
From his new album, initially I wasn’t such a big fan of this first single… however it’s grown on me. Reportedly recorded on the back of a “Rock this Bitch” in Germany, it’s no “Brick”, but very tongue in cheek… just why we love Ben.

Gnarls Barkley: Reckoner (Radiohead cover) live
Personally I think Gnarls Barkley are a bit old hat – sure, Crazy was good, but the rest just sounds the same to me… however this glorious cover of Radiohead’s Reckoner is pretty darned good…[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8R42ZU10Ko]


Monday Music Movies – Monday 4th August (yes, late again!)

By on Tuesday, 5th August 2008 at 7:52 pm

Below are some of the videos I’ve been enjoying this week…

Red Light Company: Meccano
We introduced you to Red Light company back in April, and this is their amazing video to Meccano… definately ones to watch in coming months!

Lykke Li: Breaking Up
I’ve fallen in love with this Swedish lovely recently, and this video just adds to my love of her. Looking a bit 80’s, it compliments the song perfectly.

Vampire Weekend: Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa
Since a friend introduced me to the wonder of Vampire Weekend, I’ve been in awe of them, and this summery tune and the video just makes me wish the rain wasn’t here so much!

Coldplay: Viva La Vida
I know, most people are getting a bit sick to death of this song, but frankly I can’t get enough. The video’s pretty dreamy, and would be better if Chris Martin wasn’t doing his “aeroplane” arms the whole time.


Monday Movies: 14th July

By on Wednesday, 16th July 2008 at 12:11 pm

Yes, I know it’s a tad late, but below are my five favourite videos of this week…

Below: Bloc Party: Mercury
I’m undecided about this one at the moment – it seems a bit too much of a divergence from the stuff I love from them. However, I did grow to love Flux, so here’s hoping this one grows on me.

Below: Feist does 1,2,3,4 for Sesame Street.
I’m a bit late to the whole Feist loving – but I do love this track she did for the new season of Sesame Street.

Below: Radiohead: House of Cards
Apparently this was filmed without cameras, all lasers and stuff. But it still looks and sounds great.

Below: Delays: Keep it Simple
Personally, one of my least favourite tracks off of one of my albums of the year so far, but the video is mildly amusing, not as good as it should be.

Below: Ben Folds: Rockin’ The Suburbs
Since seeing Ben on Sunday night I’ve been rediscovering his greatness… this was one of my favourite tracks (well, apart from Not The Same, but there’s not a video of that!).

If anybody has any issues with me posting the tracks or videos, please email me at phil@tgtf.net and I will take them down ASAP. Many thanks.
