I’m Scared of Vinyl

Gerard Blanchard – Rock Amadour

Posted in Videos by Catriona on February 2, 2010

I happened on this music video entirely by accident – but the sight of Gerard Blanchard’s intense stare and frantic use of the button accordion mesmerized me to such an extent that I felt compelled to put it up here. I’m not entirely sure when it was made, or who Gerard Blanchard actually is (my knowledge of French isn’t that great) but whatever its history, it’s certainly worth watching…

The new video for “Turn Me Well”.

Marina and the Diamonds

Posted in Videos by Catriona on August 7, 2009

I’ve been pretty obsessed with Marina and the Diamonds for the last couple of months – I won’t tell you what the current play count “Numb” and “Obsessions” have on my ipod at the moment, but believe me, it’s pretty high.

Fatal Bazooka Feat Yelle

I’ve been obsessively watching this video all morning, it’s fantastic! Especially if you read the subtitles (they’re up beside the YouTube video, but I’ve pasted them below if you can’t be bothered to click through). I’m going through a bit of a Yelle phase at the moment, but I don’t think anything else she’ll do in the future can beat this collaboration with Fatal Bazooka for sheer entertainment value.

Micachu & the Shapes

Micachu & the Shapes’s latest video for “Golden Phone”, from their album Jewellry which was released back in March. I do love this video, especially the brilliant red and white background, and their rather nice tshirts. What with those and the dress from the Metric video, I’m beginning to worry about how much influence music videos have over my wardrobe…

Metric – Sick Muse

I uploaded this partly because I like the song, but mostly because I REALLY want that dress that Emily Haines is wearing.

Here’s the new video from Julie Feeney’s new album, Pages, which is coming out on the 5th June. I really like the blue tights she’s wearing…

Florence and the Machine – Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)

Such a beautiful video, I love the Pre-Raphaelite vibe she’s got going on…

Iggy Pop – The Passenger

Posted in Videos by Catriona on April 10, 2009

I came across this footage of Iggy Pop from 1977 ages ago, but never got around to putting it on the blog until now. I love how atmospheric this version of “The Passenger” is, despite the fact that he’s so out of it that he has to be carried onto the stage.
