OK Go The Writing’s On the Wall Music Video


Past OK Go music videos have featured everything from dancing dogs to an extraordinarily complex Rube Goldberg machine, but their latest eye-boggling clip for “The Writing’s on the Wall” features the band’s four members moving through a Brooklyn lot, where a series of perspective illusions have been painted and prepared.

Taking nearly three weeks to assemble and 50 takes to get right, the video attempts to add motion to the geometric paintings of artists like Felice Varini and Dan Tobin-Smith (who designed the cover of Jay Z’s Blueprint 3).

OK Go’s new album, Hungry Ghosts, is due in October.

Check Out “I Don’t Dance”, The First Video Release From Indie Rockers City City


Electro/synth indie rockers, City City celebrate the release of their first official video “I Don’t Dance” – with the help of Crowdfunding – off of their upcoming full length, self-titled album to be released soon on iTunes. The band previously released two EP’s, Lines and Adult People. City City has only been a work in progress for the past year and captures the true essence of the band.

“I Don’t Dance” is a throwback to the movie culture generation of the 80’s and 90’s. Think The Pinheads “Power of Love” in Back To The Future. City City creates a sort of vignette in “I Don’t Dance” with synths, delayed guitars and percussion from a very talented group of artists. Much of the bands influence is derived from the Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! on Adult Swim. The band recently finished writing and recording an album with Tim Heidecker (from Tim and Eric) which was released by Drag City Records, and was named the #1 album of 2013 by VICE Magazine. The album also featured friend of the band James Valentine (Maroon 5), with whom Jeff recently produced several demos for the next Maroon 5 album. They have been compared to other bands such as Chvrches, Passion Pit, Arcade Fire, and New Order.

The video was directed by a friend of mine, Reed Clement and was shot by Fred Schroeder. It was produced by Neon Colony and Heroes for Hire. 

City City was originally pioneered by Kyle, Jeff and Dan in 2006 while they all worked at the same pizza joint in Los Angeles and by mere coincidence, Jeff and Dan realized they were both from Nebraska. The name City City was born when a friend from Nebraska described LA as a sprawling network of neighborhoods, as opposed to a real “city city” like Chicago or New York. Later in 2011, they completed their line-up when they recruited Valerie Ngai from Hawaii and Jarrett Portnoy, also from Nebraska.

The band has toured throughout California, the midwest, and several other states, including Hawaii.

City City is Dan McCollister (lead vocals), Jeff Kirchner (guitar/synth/vocals), Kyle Minichelli (guitar), Valerie Ngai (bass/synth) and Jarrett Portnoy (drums/vocals).
