Featured Artist: Oberhofer Oberhofer sent me a rugged-edged demo a few weeks back, and being a sucker for nasty wild-boar sensibilities in rock (think Frog Eyes – longtime favorite), I was all over it. Unfortunately I was on an extended trip home and the article slipped through one of the many leaky fissures in my mind – so I was, in turn, relieved and then scared when he sent me a reminder email with cleaned-up versions of his tracks. I was scared of “cleaned up” because the messy charm seemed to be the whole point, but thankfully, the tracks nouveau had all of their wild intact.
Featured Video: Syntaks - Twentytwohundred
Syntaks' Jakob Skott created this video for the song "Twentytwohundred" (from his group's full-length Ylajali), in which the parallels between the Danish artist's visual and aural sensibilities are on full display. Warm, saturated colors and dreamy, abstract imagery fill the clip with a sense of nostalgic wonder, echoing the music's romantic mingling of the real and unreal.
