where we're going to, you can't bring all your worth

A bizarrely sunny day ended with the most spectacular live music vibes that appear in the universe most probably once every four years. Also, I had a smoothie. And great people by my side. We're gold that's as bright as hell's own flame.

Please meet the director of the video Kendy Ty.

remember when no one danced the same
we all had a voice
we had a name
we're gold that's as bright as hell's own flame
forgive me, for I have lost my way (...)

oh raise me up, oh raise me from the dirt
each second is a high point of concern
where we're going to, you can't bring all your worth

pop-up cinema

I am so happy today. Like it almost feels unreal. And then this tune came by. A pop-up cinema remains on my still growing to-do list. Think about it. I am doing it.

Please meet the creators of the video: Noah Campeau and Jack Wolf. Additional Camera work and direction by Yaschar Scheyda. For more sounds from Tropics, click here.

no chill Iceland

Seriously Iceland. You have no chill. Out of your 329 100 inhabitants*, 329 100 are good musicians? I bow to you. Your world is a self-delusion. Your gifts are illusions.

je vous présente | La Luz

Ethnic Culture Hour everyone. Bonjour. Je vous présente: La Luz. On repeat for the past two weeks. Lost in the city, so far from you. Life is calm and lazy part of what's become of you.

Please meet the director of the video Carlos Alberto Fernandez Lopez. Directory of Photography: Miles Burnett. For more Hardly Art Records, click here.

"The inspiration for the video came from watching a lot of public access performances of our favorite bands and the bygone practice of compiling those performances onto worn out VHS tapes to pass along to buddies," explains director Carlos Lopez of his vision. "The show we invented for the video is perhaps not run by the most seasoned or professional crew, and whoever is the control booth just wants to go crazy with the green screen effects. We also wanted to make a section of the video 3D as a bonus for those with the 3D glasses that come with every copy of the album." via Noisey.

new frontiers | new elements

I saw new frontiers – on the edge between what I knew and what I didn’t know – that I had long wanted to explore: creation myths, the periodic table, Euclid's geometry, Kandinsky’s writings, the matter of sound, and of colour, the stems of wild grass in a meadow, the shapes of the landscape. For months I wandered in a seemingly chaotic mix of images, thoughts and feelings. Then, gradually, everything came together in a dance, as if all the elements were parts of the same world, and myself within it. Ludovico Einaudi
