Featured Video: Miike Snow - Animal

We have the new video for "Animal" from Miike Snow. Their self-titled album is out now on Downtown. Director Anthony Dickenson decided to work with projections and sculptures using a mixture of animation and band performance footage. Although the technique has been seen in art installations, it had never before been combined with camerawork for a music video. The technique for mapping projections was very complicated; the aftereffects had to be co-coordinated through experimentation over a period of 5 weeks. The result is a unique music video in which graphic, colourful country and city landscapes move and change in time with the music, whilst the band members transform into fantastical animals.

Featured Artist: Mayer Hawthorne

He's a white guy from Ann Arbor Michigan with a voice and style that comes together like Smokey Robinson meets J Dilla. His name is Mayer Hawthorne, and he's just another cat on board the retro soul train. Peanut Butter Wolf, the head of Stone Throws, stated that Mayer Hawthorne might have been the first person "I signed after hearing only two tracks." Besides singing, Hawthorne does all the musical arrangements as well. Talk about talent. I haven't been able to put my finger on it, but I swear "Just Ain't Gonna Work Out," is a cover--it's THAT retro. Meanwhile, tracks like "Maybe Yes Maybe No," have a soulful sound that is embedded with hip hop drum patterns. Mayer Hawthorne is currently on his first US tour, and is definitely worth a look.
