N.A.S.A. ft. Kanye West, Santogold, & Lykke Li – Gifted (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 27th, 2009 by Hyphen

Two of my favorite artists in music…and Santogold…combined for this dope track off N.A.S.A.’s debut album, The Spirit of Apollo.  I really dig the sounds at the beginning and end of this joint, but as with most N.A.S.A. videos, I don’t think I do enough (ok, any) drugs to enjoy the visuals as much as some folks do.  Seeing them live at SXSW was definitely an experience though.  Peace to the dancing alien go-go dancers at the Filter party…

Pharrell, Julian Casablancas, & Santogold – My Drive Thru (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on July 9th, 2008 by Hyphen

I’m not a huge fan of this track, but I dig all the artists involved with it.  I just like their separate work more I suppose.  Either way, here’s the video for the song that Converse & Cornerstone helped put together.  Videos like this are hilarious to me, since I know the artists probably shot two takes for a total of 15 minutes in front of a green screen.  Then some unlucky (but talented) editors slaved away for weeks, turning the raw footage into the piece of art you see above.  The visuals are dope.  Shout to all my Cornerstone folk, what up Blaze!
