Wahlström & Valiant – Keep Up

Got an e-mail late last week hinting that W&V released a new video. I just love this track and the accompanying video isn’t bad either. Be sure to check out 2 button love and their mspaint remix disaster too, they’re pretty epic in all their 8-bit lofi glory.

Lissi Dancefloor Disaster – Oh My God

Old song, new video. I love what they’ve done here, portraying that crazy anything-goes party night that you just never want to end. (and I would kill to play that NES game)

This Is Head – 0007

Just your regular vinyl anonymous meeting. I guess those are a dying breed, inb4 music bloggers anonymous.

Gaudi – Bad Boy Bass

This has been done to death before but it’s still funny to watch a stickman trying to fight his human overlord.

Lissie – Bad Romance

Most epic Gaga cover you’ll see all week.

Some hype, some humor, some art and some all of the above. Welcome to another edition of video Wednesday.

The Electro Wars Final Trailer

Do want to watch the full feature now! Apparently it debuts at the Winter Music Conference, uhm, today.

The Lonely Island – Boombox (ft. Julian Casablancas)

Going from electro wars to this kind of blends the boundaries between reality and parody, the over-the-top-hipster-aesthetic is becoming a bit old, but it’s still funny as hell.

Gloobic – Here the nothing

I’d like to have seen the taping of this, must have looked weirder than weird.

Florence And The Machine – Dog Days Are Over

Clichéd beauty but beauty none the less. What’s with the 60s Na’vi tho? Also, history revisionism, this never happened, you hear?

New young pony club – Chaos

Pretty much awesome in every way. There must be a whole beyond retro store featured in there, right?

Welcome back to another installment of this biweekly, meant to be weekly tradition called video wednesday.

Hot Chip – I feel better

Too bad doesn’t allow embeds from myspace yet (or ever?) you’ll just have to visit yourself to have a look at the talk of the day. Some crazy stuff going on there.

Balkan Beat Box – War Again

The Bloody Beetroots Death Crew 77 – DOMINO

Tron: Legacy trailer

The latest retro-future-looking trailer for Tron: Legacy

Things are heating up at camp Robyn [video]

Posted in Hype, Music, Video with tags on March 17, 2010 by optpopt

First pitchfork publishes an interview with her about what she’s got in store for 2010 then she tweets about having updated with a track called “fembots have feelings too” from the upcoming album. A track that is pure gold I might add! On top of that, some kind soul have uploaded and translated the swedish television special on her from last week. Things are really heating up, first release planned for june!

Dom kallar oss artister – Robyn

The Ellie Goulding compilation [music]

Posted in Hype, Music with tags , , , , , , , on March 9, 2010 by optpopt

The long awaited album Lights dropped last week! I’ve already given it a couple of listens and I must say it’s pretty awesome overall. Although I think some of the songs have been given a bit too much polish here and there it still has that playful feel to it which is what I liked about Ellie’s songs to begin with. Give lights a spin yourself on spotify.

Now, if you want more Ellie or just want other takes on the songs, ranging from dubstep and hard hitting bangers to soft acoustics, look no further. I decided to compile a pack similar to the little boots one containing all my favorite tracks featuring Ellie that I have in my collection.
