A late one, but still making it a Tunes Tuesday.
Enjoy. “Get another head and get on with your life.”
The newest video and preview from their upcoming album – Brennisteinn. Pre-order the album, Kveikur, here.
Sigur Rós has the most amazing ability to have their music videos seem like films. Most likely because they are fantastically cinematic and use actual film directors, but it’s something that I find so intriguing. Below is another one of their music videos I’ve become fascinated with from their Valtari Mystery Film Experiment.
This is just too funny to not post. I miss the beach. Thankfully, I live only a few blocks away from a lake that is swim-able in the summer. Rocks are not the same as sand, but they also don’t stick all over you either. Looking forward to warmer days, they are just around the corner.
Photo from Wes Anderson’s latest film, Moonrise Kingdom in case you didn’t already know. My current obsession for a few reasons.

Okay so pretty much every single aspect of the movie! I love that my blog posts about things are a year after they have been out. I am certainly not the most current, but always relevant!
Here is a rendition of One Righteous Man I composed for my my church, Downtown Cornerstone. It sounds much better with the full band and strings! Also, I don’t sing on Sundays so that part is better as well, but I hope you enjoy it none the less.
His work is a collage of vintage photos, space, and geometry into images that are captivating and weird (my kind of guy!) He did the album artwork for Tamara’s last 7″ limited edition vinyl as you can see in the video. I love the clear vinyl and the hand stamping they did. Below is another video from Alpage Records for artist Antoine Pesle that caught my eye. I like this record label; they are weird.
I came to know Bradley Hathaway from going to a hardcore show whilst in high school. I remember the night clearly. Jeff and I were at Studio 7 to see The Chariot and As Cities Burn. Waiting between sets, we noticed some awesome shirts by a “band” called Bradley Hathaway of which we had never heard. Then all of a sudden a skinny long haired man begins doing poetry within the “pit”. Gathered attentively, Bradley’s words cascaded through the heads of those individuals who, at this point, had encompassed him in a ring of patience, awaiting each and every overly emphasized syllable. At the time, he became known to me for his comical hits “I am Hardcore” and “Manly Man” but he is most certainly centered upon one center, Christ. The jest filled songs gave way to spoken words about God’s love and grace, and today I fully appreciate that.
