Article: Typo animation of Tom Waits' "Eggs and Sausage"

Jackie Lay animates the lyrics of Tom Waits “Eggs and Sausage” from his 1975 album Nighthawks at the Diner. She captures the familiar typography of the neon signs and menus that one finds in nearly all diners regardless of regions. Watching this makes me nostalgic for the Village Inn diner in Anchorage, Alaska that my…

This deceptively lo-fi video is too spectacular to bury in my weekly Friday music video round up and the blogosphere is currently freaking out about its brilliance.

Meet Reyna, the Brooklyn-based chanteuse whose self-titled four-track EP debuted last Friday along with the music video for “Love Love Love,” shot entirely on the new iPhone 3GS by filmmakers Ari Kuschnir and Michael Tyburski. The video’s black and white imagery and Reyna’s gothic-meets-high-fashion ensemble (all Yohji Yamamoto, one of her favorite designers) sets the perfect tone for her haunting yet lush, pop-infused vocals and acoustic backing.

Article: Amazing Animated Video for Death Cab for Cutie's "Grapevine Fires"

Death Cab for Cutie’s 2008 album Narrow Stairs didn’t immediately grab me the way their last two discs did, but I’ve come to really like it. The one song I unequivocally loved on first listen was “Grapevine Fires,” a haunting, beautifully paced track about the effects of the 2007 Southern California wildfires. Death Cab’s Ben…
